oints to lead Davidson to a domi

  • 12 March 2019
    导出博客文章Joe Root is ready to captain England according to Alastair Cook. While Cook
    maintained that his views on continuing as captain have not changed - he has
    long said that he will continue on a series by series basis and make a firm
    decision only after consulting the managing director of the England team, Andrew
    Strauss - he did hint he was asking himself some questions over his future.I
    think Joe Root is ready to captain England, Cook said following Englands
    innings-and-36-run defeat in Mumbai which handed India the series. He is ready
    because he is a clued-up guy and he has the respect of everyone in the changing
    room.You never know until you actually experience it and everything that comes
    with the England captaincy. You are thrown in at the deep end and you kind of
    sink or swim. Nothing can prepare you for it. He has not got much captaincy
    experience but that does not mean everything.While it is true that Root, the
    current vice-captain, has little captaincy experience - he has been captain for
    just four first-class games - that could equally be used as a reason to elevate
    him sooner rather than later.England play two Test series in the English summer
    of 2017 - one against South Africa and one against West Indies - and, if there
    is any doubt over whether Cook will continue as captain until the Ashes at the
    end of the year, there is bound to be a temptation to provide Root with the
    maximum amount of experience possible and make the change before the South
    Africa series.There is already much required of him, though. He is, arguably,
    Englands key batsman in all three formats and, in the next few weeks, he will
    become a father for the first time. With the demands of England schedule, it may
    be that Cook and Strauss are reluctant to overload him.Either way, Cook has some
    time to reflect on his position. As he is no longer a member of the England
    limited-overs teams, he has no international commitments until July after the
    Chennai Test finishes next week and while he has sounded increasingly jaded with
    some aspects of life on the road in recent weeks, he retains great pride in the
    leadership role.The comments I made at start of series have not changed, Cook
    said. It sticks true to end of this series. I will sit down with Straussy at the
    end of the year like we have made the pact to do to talk honestly and openly
    about stuff. My position has not changed and wouldnt have done had we won this
    game or lost this game.Of course you have questions. Naturally you look at
    stuff. Clearly it is a hard place to tour, certainly with the balance of our
    squad in terms of where our strengths lie, the sub-continent is going to be a
    harder place to tour than somewhere like South Africa.But being captain of
    England is a huge honour, a huge privilege. You are at the forefront of the team
    and it comes onto your shoulders when you win or lose. In the heat of the battle
    you make those decisions. You go to bed at night and you have to live with
    making good or bad decisions. As a bloke to be asked to lead your country is a
    huge honour personally.
