England batsman Joe Root is hoping his impressive performances in the limited overs series against New Zealand will be enough to assure him a place in the Test side, and doesn't mind where he bats in the order.
Root scored two fifties in the three-match ODI series against the Black Caps, which England won 2-1, and before that he did well on the tour to India. He has been tipped to open the batting in the Tests, alongside Alastair Cook.
Root is worried about where he plays, as long as he does, even if it's at the expense of Nick Compton, saying: "I don't really mind where I bat, whether it is No 6 or opening - as long as I play.
"We've played some really good cricket, winning both the Twenty20s and one-dayers which is what we set out to do.
"I think everyone gets a bit nervous. But I got out there, and there were thousands of people there and a great atmosphere - really loud - and I just found myself smiling and enjoying myself.
"That took over for me, and I didn't really worry about anything. I just wanted to make it last for as long as possible.
"There's obviously a jump (to Test cricket). It's tough and you're playing against some very good players. But more than anything you just need to make sure you know your role and try to stick to it."
The first Test starts on 6 March.
