"If anything it falls on me for giving him (Jack Leach) too aggressive fields too early, not allowing him to settle and give him a bit more of a chance early on. Jack is a fine spinner, in the 20-odd Tests he has played, he has shown what an instrumental part he can play within this team and I'm sure he will play a big part in the series moving forward," he added. Root also said that his side does not get bogged down with a nine-wicket loss in the first Test Ashes. "It's really important in a five-match Test series, we don't feel too sorry for ourselves on the back of this. We have got to remember there is a huge amount of cricket to play. There are a lot of good things to take from this game, we felt we were very much in the game for long periods of time," said Root.
