Popped over for lunch today in the school canteen with the new England captain, Joe Root. He seemed like a very nice chap as he signed shirts and shook hands - having been unveiled as captain only a couple of days ago, with a tour starting at the weekend, he'd have been forgiven for cancelling. He'd done a Q+A with students and local children which I missed but which was apparently very good. His reply to the question about giving Pietersen a place ('There's a Twenty20 tournament on at the same time so I think he's probably busy') was a well-pitched, witty response to a tricky issue.
I took a few photos.
