Chances of seeing him much in a Yorkshire shirt are already slim, but considering they only ever release their players to counties in April and May when the IPl is on, I don't see him playing for Yorkshire much if at all in the remainder of his career.

Maybe the pull of his young son might persuade him to stay here and not go to the IPL.

Ultimately cricket is his profession

Cricketers have a relativel short career.

Who here would not go to India if they could earn 5 times their salary?

Although the money would be nice I doubt Joe needs it with the central contract base salary been £700k a year and now he's captain a bit more now. Perhaps he just wants to experience it once? Fair play to the lad.

I don't think he gives a toss about Yorkshire anymore. Hardly repaid us with runs whenever he's bin allowed to play. I think he's the complete opposite of bairstow. Root seems like a Surrey lad in disguise to me, he's happy doing his thing away from the "grim north"

Fair play to him if he can get a gig out there. he'll get a huge wedge of cash and he's a long time retired.

Why would he not go? Incredible experience and oodles of cash.

The statement about him being like a 'Surrey lad' is bizarre.

I'm with you Sid. It's an honour to lead your country and it requires duties that sadly mean time in the south but I bet joe would prefer to Oudh his lad round the Abbeydale boundary still and play for the white rose as he did when he took over from Gale as skipper for the 2014 final game.

Interesting one. Given what Root earns just from his England contract (presumably sponsorship and appearances must take his earnings above the £1 million mark), I would hope that money would not be a motivating factor. I wouldn't have a clue what do if I earned £100K a year never mind a million, other than bank it! Yes cricket is a short career, but Root is never going to be short of work is he? He will waltz into the comms box or into coaching.

On the other hand I can understand why he might want to experience the IPL - the money I surely incidental for him?

Possibly something like £750k-£1m for 6 weeks work. I can see the attraction myself.
