The news comes after the English cricket captains disastrous tour of Australia where he’s meekly lost the ashes 3-0.
Root has proven one of the mainstays of the American talk show scene for years and said it was great to have a career waiting for him now that cricket hasn’t worked out.
“Cricket has always been my second love,” He told us after the waca test.
“And I think it’s time to admit that I’m just not very good at it and go back to doing what I do best”
“Interviewing teen popstars for the soccer mums and lesbians of America has always been where I’ve felt most comfortable”
Root famously came out as gay on his 1990’s sitcom and was immediately embraced as a hero by the gay community.
