In the video, while Root is playing the guitar, Stuart Broad, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, and the managerial staff danced and sang to mark the memorable occasion.
Ben Foakes picked up the Man of the Series as Chris Woakes bagged the Man of the match in the final Test.
“That’s been a big secret in our success — being able to bring different guys in, and pick a team that is going to take 20 wickets and score enough runs to put teams under pressure,” said Root.
“The experienced players have taken the extra responsibility. It’s been exceptional. It’s been a complete team effort, it’s been a great tour,” said Root, who has set the target of overtaking India as world number one Test team.
England will next take on Windies for a three-match Test series in their backyard.
