This week, Ben asked for his Daily Mirror column to be published twice. First to praise Joe Root and then to offer a personal tribute to the England captain.
In his second column, Ben writes about his pride at being asked to present Joe with his hundredth Test cap.
Ben explains his respect for Joe and why he will "go through a brick wall" for the England captain.
