CRICDOT DESK : Ben Stokes says he is not eager to be the captain of England and is in favor of Joe Root, the current skipper. The roots position has been scrutinized after England lost to Australia at the age of 30 and lost Ash Streak on the earliest opportunity.

Deputy Captain All Rounder Stokes may be the only reliable option due to his experience and guaranteed location within the team.

“I didn’t have the ambition to be a captain,” said a 30-year-old man.

“Captains don’t just set fields, select teams, and make decisions along the way. The captain is the person you want to go out and play with. Joe Root is the one I always want to play. With 60 games in his fourth test against Australia in Sydney starting Wednesday (Tuesday, 23:30 GMT)

“I don’t feel Joe at all,” Stokes said. “He has led this team a long way. He has done some great things. Obviously, this series didn’t work very well from the team’s point of view and results, not from the captain’s point of view. ”

“It’s totally Joe’s decision. He shouldn’t be forced into doing it. I’m sure Cooky felt the same way. He did it for so long and when he knew his time was up, his time was up. Those discussions haven’t entered anywhere near Joe yet.
Stokes also gave his support to coach Chris Silverwood, who has seen his team win only one of their past 12 Tests.

Silverwood is in isolation after contracting Covid19 and will miss the fourth Test, but is expected to return for the series finale in Hobart.

“Unfortunately, the captain and coach bear the scrutiny, but there are 10 other guys out there in the field,” said Stokes.

“Chris Silverwood is a real players’ coach. He stands up for you as individuals and players as well. “All the hype about their future in the media these days is your job to write this, but I know enough that they have everyone’s support. That’s important.
