English captain shared quite a lot during a podcast on BBC Sports. He recalled the time when Ben Stokes turned up with huge innings at Edgbaston to bag an improbable one-wicket over Australia and said that Stokes has been doing big things just recently. Stokes took a break to heal his thumb and also for mental health reasons. Root also said that this has been the biggest year of his career. Root also said that injuries are something that has derailed the English campaign before and he wishes he could have had speedster Jofra Archer.
Apart from injuries, no. Getting there with a fully fit squad is the thing we have no control over, but it would be fantastic. It's something that has hurt us on previous tours. We've had some quite big blows in terms of serious injuries. Jofra Archer could have been such a force.

It will give everyone a huge lift going into the tour, because we know what he is capable of. He has done it quite recently against Australia.
