Australian batsman Chris Rogers has said that Joe Root should not be an opening batsman for England.
The 23-year-old has averaged just 25 since scoring a century during last summer's Ashes at Lord's.
The Middlesex captain told The Times: "I don't particularly think Joe Root's an opener. He plays spin well and he's better suited to the middle order."
Root has made 15 Test-match appearance for England since making his debut in 2012.
