England were 337 for seven at stumps on the second day after Root made 104, having come in with England in trouble on 67 for three following Friday’s first day wash-out.

Together with Yorkshire colleague Jonny Bairstow (64), Root shared a fifth-wicket stand of 124. The 22-year-old Root, in his sixth match at this level, was the first Yorkshire batsman in the county’s 150-year history to make his first Test hundred at Headingley.
