Ben Stokes can become the next Test captain of England, opinion of veteran cricketers

London. Former captains Michael Vaughan and Nasser Hussain said that star all-rounder Ben Stokes has the ‘smart mind’ required for cricket. He is a clear choice to take over as England’s Test captain after Joe Root stepped down. Root, who faced criticism after England’s 0-4 Ashes series against Australia and 0-1 Test series against West Indies, resigned from captaincy on Friday. However, Root is the captain who has won the most Test matches in the history of England. He has also scored the most Test runs as a captain.

Michael Vaughan told the BBC, ‘I do not see anyone other than Stokes, who has a confirmed place in the team and can take the responsibility of this position.’ He said that you have such a player in Ben Stokes, who has the smart mind necessary for cricket. If he gets a chance, he will be completely dedicated. He also enjoys the respect of fellow players. Hussain, who led England from 1999-2003, also supported Stokes taking over as Test captain.

Amazing in the World Cup final too

He told ‘’ that for me, Ben Stokes is clearly the first for this position. Stokes has done some phenomenal things as a cricketer and has a very smart cricketing mind. He has shown it in the World Cup final. He made a memorable performance at Headingley. He has led the team several times in the absence of Root. Another former captain Michael Atherton, who led the England team from 1993 to 1998, also picked Stokes for the post.
