Australia legend Warne feels Root would be more effective without the "shackles" of leading his country and thinks Buttler should step up. Root reached three figures in the last Test against India after dropping back a spot to number four and does not feel he needs to relinquish the captaincy .

Jack Leach, a left-arm orthodox bowler from Somerset, was brought in to replace the struggling Moeen Ali, who was taken to the cleaners by a dominant Steve Smith in the first Test at Edgbaston.

Statistically, Leach's inclusion made sense when you break down Smith's respective averages against different styles of bowler.

He averages in the mid-60's against both left-arm and right-arm quicks, and an astonishing 94.07 against off-spin. However, the only noticeable down-dip in that grouping is when it comes to left-arm orthodox bowlers, where his career average drops to 34.90.

Which, as Healy said in an exclusive conversation with Wide World Of Sports, made the decision not to bowl the left-arm tweaker until the 56th over, when Smith had already faced 92 balls, all the stranger.

"I think (Joe) Root missed a trick not bowling him earlier in the piece," Healy said.

"You could have even opened the day with him. If it doesn't work, you get him off and bowl someone else - but get him involved, do something different."

"By getting him into the attack early, even if it's just a token message - it makes him feel valued, and a proper part of the setup," Healy continued.

Ex-English skipper Nasser Hussain was in disbelief about how little Leach was used by Root, doubling down on Healy's assertions.

"He's been brought in to bowl against Smith, who has a weakness against left-arm orthodox, and he's not bowling!"

Going further, Healy criticised Root's captaincy more generally.

"It (their tactics) seemed a bit laid-back to me," Healy continued.

"It wasn't aggressive enough, and when it was aggressive, the bowlers bowled way too high, they didn't get the fields right, and they didn't get pressure on and keep it on."
