"It is a huge honour to be given the England Test captaincy", said Root.

During Cook's reign, England registered a Test series win against India in India after 28 years while they won the Ashes at home in 2013 and 2015.
He added: "We have a very good group of players, and I'm looking forward to leading them out in the summer - building on Alastair's achievements and making the most of our talents in the years ahead". I think England cricket fans will be saying "yeah we love his captaincy but we want him to continue scoring runs". Root's position has been confirmed for Test matches only.
