ROOT ALL SET TO LEAD THE ENGLISH TEAM OF HIS OWN TECHNIQUES

SPORTSLIBRO CRICKET- LATEST CRICKET NEWS

Joe Root the much talented and the recently elected captain of the English side has told that he will be leading the team of his own style and techniques.

In his first press conference he said that nothing is worrying him much as because he is the captain now and will take everything calmly at his own will and will be a better captain.

With this Joe root will become the 80th test captain for the English side and he is very much excited to lead the team as a captain and will perform his job as a better skipper with all his experience and hopes that he has got over the years.

 

"I think I have played 50-odd Test matches now and I think that counts for a lot," he said. "I think it's very different cricket, Test cricket to County Championship. Over the past couple of years I have had that added responsibility of the vice-captaincy and for a while now I like to think, even though I haven't been captain, that I've started to think like a captain and I have added some value where I can.


"I did not have much county experience until I got into the Test team but managed to be successful in that environment. It is the way cricket is now and I would like to think I have started to try and think as a captain in my own mind anyway. I think of course there will be times when I need a bit of help but I am really excited to get hold of the role and try and make it mine."


Speaking about his time in charge, Cook admitted that he should have taken on-board more advice from former players. Despite being his own man, it is something Root is keen to do, starting with his predecessor. "I think it would be silly not to take any advice from him [Cook] and I am sure there will be a number of players I'll call upon on to help me on occasions within the dressing room but I will want to do things my way as well.


"For the most part of it I would like to think I can put my stamp on things and do things my way. I think it would be silly not to go and speak to people who have been in this position, Cooky, Straussy, I have obviously known Michael Vaughan a long time and maybe people away from cricket as well to get a different perspective."
