Nick Clegg, Liberal Democrat MP for Sheffield Hallam , has sent a letter of congratulations to Sheffield’s newest England cricketer Joe Root.
Joe recently made his full debut on England’s historic Test series win against India. During the final game of the series in Nagpur, he made a vital first innings score of 73 to help secure the series win.
The 21 year old Joe Root lives in Dore, within Nick Clegg’s Sheffield Hallam constituency. He learned his trade at Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club, which is also the former club of previous England captain Michael Vaughan.
Nick Clegg, Liberal Democrat MP for Sheffield Hallam, said:
“Joe not only made an outstanding debut and did his part to help England secure their first series win in India for many years, but he also made the people of his home city very proud too.
“It is clear that Sheffield has another major talent on our hands and I for one am looking forward to seeing Joe develop and flourish as an England player in the years to come.”
