Skipper from England Joe Koren said on Saturday that his best with the bat is yet to come and he wants to make the next phase of his career a peak.
“I certainly feel that the best is yet to come,” Ruth told the Daily Mail. “I want to have more series like the beginning of this winter and produce those big hundreds to help you win the series. I’m hungry to make the next phase of my career rush.”
England have played New Zealand in two test matches since June 2, followed by five test matches against India in August-September and an equal number of tests against Australia in the ashes which begins on December 8. While the series for New Zealand and India will be played at home, Ash will be played Down Under.
Ruth scored 228, 186 and 218 in consecutive tests in Sri Lanka and India, before the overly pleasant surfaces in the last three games of the series in India beat England. The root was also struggling.
However, the 30-year-old Batsman № 4 of England said that despite the loss to India, the England team is moving up and taking steps as a test group.
“I feel like I’ve grown a lot in the past year or so and I’m doing well now,” he added.
“I was obviously disappointed with the way India was doing [Test series] completed, but I feel like we’re taking big steps as a test group and entering an exciting phase of games that could really see us thrive. “
