Video - Success Of Joe Root Is 'A Great Story' - Vaughan

Former England captain Michael Vaughan tells us at the OSCAs that Joe Root's swift progress as an England player is a great story that should inspire young players.

Root, who like Vaughan, came through the Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club and then Yorkshire's system, made his England debut in India late last year.

He also played in New Zealand before scoring his maiden Test century at Headingley against New Zealand earlier this year, going on to score a memorable 180 against Australia in The Ashes.

He helped England win the series 3-0 and was also part of the team that got to the final of the Champions Trophy.

Now Vaughan, who played 82 Tests betwen 1999 and 2008 for England, says that he hopes Root's dramatic impact on the international stage can inspire youngsters who are just making their way in the game.
