Of course Root may choose to revert back to batting at 4, but that does squeeze the middle order.
I think Root was almost certainly nailed on to bat at 4 with Jennings at three, and if they picked the side tomorrow probably would be stuck with. If this carries on - and it's hard not to see Jennings enjoying Division 2 bowling - then Scott Borthwick's early season runs might see him called back up at 3, or perhaps Northeast's runs will get him in to the middle order.
