CRICKET: Joe Root in line for Ashes opening spot

Published:Tuesday | June 25, 2013 | 8:53 AM

Nick Compton has been left out of England's warm-up match for the Ashes against Essex, with Joe Root moving up the order to open the batting.



The 29-year-old Compton struggled in the recent 2-0 Test series win over New Zealand and appears to have paid the price.



England's four-day game against Essex starts on Sunday.



The first Test between England and Australia begins on July 10.
