England opener Joe Root became England youngest Ashes centurion at Lord's

The 22 years and 202 days, Root became England's youngest Ashes centurion at Lord's as the Yorkshire batsman record his second ton in just his eighth Test and the root's heroics present the groundwork for England to push Australia closer to a second straight defeat, with the hosts down only two wickets to close on 333 for five a lead of 566 with two days to play.

It was still sweeter for Root as his younger brother Billy, a part of the ground staff of Marylebone Cricket Club which owns Lord's, gives out as England's 12th man and drinks carrier for much of the day.

The England's star player was subjected to some high-quality natured crack from Billy during every drinks break and he has been abuse me all day take drinks out, so he really had to be good to me when I got the century, Root said.
