Australia's former captain, Ricky Ponting highlighted the problem behind the conversion rate of England's Test captain, Joe Root. Ricky Ponting said, "it is just the mental block that Root does not get over easily".
He starts to think about too many things as soon as he gets to his fifty, Ponting added. Joe Root has scored 16 Test hundreds and 41 Test half-centuries. His conversion rate has not been very commendable.
This year's Ashes is a big task for the England captain as he has a chance to improve his conversion rate and also defend England's glory of winning the ICC Cricket World Cup under the captaincy of his fellow teammate Eoin Morgan.
