“He has gone away with the Lions, performed and worked his way back in the squad and he looks in great rhythm,” said Root about Wood. “He is bowling with good pace and he has developed his game as well. That is exactly what you want from guys when they have been left out, to come back better players. He has not taken the wickets he would have liked when he has had previous opportunities but look at him now and he couldn’t be in a better place to go on and do something really good.”
