Chris Rogers backs Sam Robson over Joe Root for England opener
Australian batsman Chris Rogers considers Middlesex team-mate and opening partner, Sam Robson to be a better opener over England's Joe Root.
According to BBC, Rogers said that he does not consider Joe Root as an opener, as he plays spin well and is suited for middle order, adding that Robson would be a very good international player.
Root was reportedly dropped from the England Test side after the 5-0 Ashes whitewash, as he averages only 25, since scoring 180 in the second Ashes Test at Lord's last July.
On the other hand Robson scored five centuries for the England Performance Programme, and the Lions - England's second-string side on their winter tour of Australia and Sri Lanka, the reports added.
