Root’s a ringer for Ellen

By on November 21, 2013

FIRST, it was the Sherminator. Now, Ellen DeGeneres. Shane Warne’s attempts at getting under the skin of English batsmen have hit new heights with the spin king posting a split screen image Joe Root and DeGeneres on Instagram – the resemblance is shocking.

The uncanny similarity sent the Twitterverse into raptures after Warne posted the picture just before the close of play on the first day at the Gabba.

Warne famously labelled English batsmen Ian Bell, “The Sherminator” – a character in the movie American Pie – in a previous Ashes series.

Let’s hope this jibe has the opposite effect on Root because Bell has been one of the world’s premier batsmen since Warne launched his Sherminator attack. Fingers crossed.
