Joe Root is confident England can build on a successful winter ahead of this summer’s visit of Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Marshawn Lynch Jersey . Root - ranked as the No 2 batsman in the world in the ICC Test rankings - helped England to ODI and Twenty20 series wins over Pakistan before a Test series win in South Africa prior to the ICC World T20 in India.England suffered a heart-breaking final-over defeat to West Indies in the World T20 final but Root is focusing on the positives and hopes they can use their winter exploits as a platform to build on this summer. Root picked up two wickets in the World T20 final against West Indies Obviously when you get to a final its all about winning, Root told Sky Sports News HQ, live from a golf day at Woburn with fellow England internationals Ben Stokes and Stuart Broad.Unfortunately we were unable to do that but the effort we put in and the experience we have gained from that is going to stand us in great stead moving forward. A lot of guys have gained a lot of confidence and hopefully we can take that forward into an exciting summer of Test cricket.Weve had a pretty successful winter with winning away in South Africa and getting to the final of the Twenty20 World Cup and there are a lot of exciting young players that are putting their name forward for selection for this Test series. And then when the ODIs kick in, hopefully we can take that form forward from the Twenty20 into that. Joe Root and Ben Stokes took part in an impromptu bit of street cricket in Londons Carnaby Street Root confirmed his first match since the World T20 will be the County Championship clash with Nottinghamshire, live and exclusive on Sky Sports on May 1.With the season already underway, Middlesex opener Sam Robson has staked his claim for an England place after plundering 337 in two innings against Warwickshire, setting a new Middlesex record for runs scored in a first-class game. Alastair Cook is now wearing an ECB-compliant helmet The great thing about the County Championship and this time of the season is that it is a great opportunity for the guys to put their hands up and give themselves the best chance for the selectors to pick them, Root added.As part of the side thats what you want to see - guys scoring runs, taking wickets and putting you under pressure. Seeing the depth that weve got as a country, hopefully that will stand u in good stead and keep everyone looking to improve and take our side forward. Sam Robson has caught the eye in the opening weeks of the County Championship season There has been widespread debate over the newly-introduced British Safety Standard compliant helmets after the ECB grilled Test captain Alastair Cook when he persisted with wearing the old style headgear.Cook hit 127 not out in Essexs draw with Sussex on Wednesday while wearing the new-style helmet and Root thinks it is now time to draw a line under the issue. Stuart Broad says he understands why Alastair Cook refused to wear the new helmet at the start of the cricket season The rules are the rules and you have to get over it now, he said.Theres no point moaning about it. Thats whats happened and its obviously going to be a little frustrating for a few guys who have been used to playing in a certain way and stuff but if thats the way its got to go, we have to get to grips with it pretty quickly.Its good to see Alastair go and do that [score an unbeaten century] and it wont take him long to adjust even though it must be quite frustrating if youve been used to that for your whole career. But its time to move on I suppose if they are the laws that are going to be put in place.

The most important number was the 5-1 victory the Hawks put up against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon that extended their winning streak to three games. Toews linemate Patrick Sharp did get a goal with the help of an assist by Marion Hossa, so it wasnt as if the teams top line was shut out of the action. "As a line, maybe we didnt get too much going," said Toews, who had nine points in the previous five games, including a natural hat trick on Tuesday. "We didnt get that puck control we wanted to throughout three periods, but a nice play by Hossa on Sharpys goal there." Hossa had stolen the puck and sprung Sharp on a breakaway. He deked in front of goalie Ondrej Pavelec and fired a low shot on the glove side at 2:41 that made it 3-1. Sharps goal was the second of three straight the Blackhawks (9-2-3) scored in the first six minutes of the second period. Corey Crawford stopped 26 shots in picking up his eighth win of the season. Defencemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Nick Leddy and forwards Brandon Bollig and Ben Smith also scored. Marcus Kruger had a pair of assists and Leddy and Bollig also picked up an assist each for the Blackhawks, who are 4-1-1 on the road this season. Defenceman Tobias Enstrom scored at 5:08 of the first period for Winnipeg (5-8-2), which has lost three straight. Hjalmarrson tied it 1-1 after Kruger cleanly won the face off and sent him the puck. His goal spoiled an impressive penalty kill for Winnipeg. Fans had just given the Jets a standing ovation for killing off a 21-second two-man advantage, but just one second after the final penalty expired, Hjalmarrson fired a high shot from just inside the blue line that went through traffic at 9:58. Bollig, Sharp and Leddy scored their goals in a span of three minutes and 55 seconds, and after Chicago only had four shots on goal in the period. "I thought we played really well and then all of a sudden it was 3-1," Jets captain Andrew Ladd said. "And then you maybe get outside your game a little bit and try doing things to catch up and dig a deep hole." Jets coach Claude Noel viewed Sharps goal as the dagger. "I thought that was a play that really killed our team," Noel said. It was the Jets biggest margin of defeat this season. They had lost 4-1 to Dallas Oct. 11. Pavelec was replaced by Al Montoya after Leddys goal at 5:49 of the second made it three in a row. Pavelec had stopped 10 of 14 shots at that point. Montoya faced 11 shots in his stint. L.J. Collier Jersey. Noel wasnt blaming Pavelec for not bailing the team out this time. "Before it gets to him, theres sometimes breakdowns elsewhere," Noel said. Crawford said he saw most of the 27 shots the Jets sent his way. "I think most of their situations were crashing the net on the wing," he said. "A couple I had to fight for through screens but most of them, a couple of rebounds there, our guys were able to clear after." Enstroms second goal of the season came during a week in which he revealed that hed told Team Sweden he wouldnt suit up for the squad if asked to play in next years Olympic Games because he wanted to focus on playing well for the Jets. Chicago had a bit of a scare with 65 seconds left in the first when Crawford was knocked down by Blake Wheeler, who was coming in fast with the puck. Crawford was slow to get up, but remained in the game and said later he didnt remember getting his bell rung. While he was getting looked at, the jumbotron zoomed in on Blackhawks backup goalie Nikolai Khabibulin on the bench and a message flashed welcoming him back to Winnipeg. Chanting "Habby, Habby," fans stood to give Khabibulin a standing ovation, which he recognized with a wave of his glove from the bench. The netminder played for the original Jets in their last 1996 game before the team moved to Phoenix to become the Coyotes. Patrick Kane almost added to Chicagos lead early in the third period when he was given a penalty shot after being hooked by Jets defenceman Grant Clitsome during a breakaway. Kanes backhand shot went high past Montoya, but it hit the crossbar and bounced out. In less than two minutes, Smith did change the scoreboard to 5-1 when he redirected a shot from the boards by Bollig at 9:13. There were a number of fans at MTS Centre wearing Blackhawks jersey, including some bearing the name of the Winnipeg-born Toews, Sharp and Duncan Keith, who assisted on Smiths goal. Winnipeg hosts Detroit on Monday, while Chicago is home to Calgary on Sunday and Winnipeg on Wednesday. Notes: The Jets claimed Los Angeles Kings defenceman Keaton Ellerby off waivers earlier in the day. Winnipeg has three injured blue-liners; Mark Stuart, Jacob Trouba and Paul Postma a The Blackhawks visit the White House on Monday to be recognized by U.S. President Barack Obama for their Cup title a Jets forward Michael Frolik won the Cup with Chicago last year, while Winnipeg captain Andrew Ladd and defenceman Dustin Byfuglien have championship rings from Chicagos 2010 title.
