Root signals intent to continue as England captain

Some pundits have questioned whether Root remains captain because nobody else apart from perhaps Ben Stokes is guaranteed a spot in the team, and Stokes has not expressed any interest in the role.

But England have won only one of their past 17 tests overall, and it remains to be seen whether their new managing director and head coach, whoever they turn out to be, back Root continuing as captain.

Root acknowledged that no matter how much he wants to lead England for a busy home summer of tests starting in barely two months, it may not be up to him.

Although one of the world’s best batters, with a test average of nearly 50, Root has rarely looked a natural leader and has earned a reputation as an unimaginative captain.

Harmison said that for all the talk of Root’s tactical nous in the field, or lack of it, he was hardly to blame for England’s frequent struggles with the bat.

“It’s not his fault we keep crumbling under pressure and lose 10 wickets in a session,” he said.

Root acknowledged the poor top order batting performances in Grenada.

“I don’t think we quite read the surface as well as we could have individually,” he said.

But Root himself was adamant about his position following their 10-wicket defeat.metasports

“I think I’ve made it quite clear how I feel about this team,” he said.

“I’m very passionate. I feel I’ve got the support of the men behind me to take the team forward. That’s not changed at all.”
