The test series against Australia began at Trent Bridge today, with 22-year-old Root opening the batting for the host nation alongside skipper Alastair Cook.
Cook fell for 13, while Root remained until Peter Siddle bowled him with a full delivery to leave England 78 for 2.
Meanwhile, another Old Worksopian, Samit Patel, has today made a century for Notts at The Oval.
Playing against Surrey, Patel made 110 runs.
