Nasser Hussain claims, make this player the new captain of England. Hindi News

Next England Captain: Former England captain Nasser Hussain has said that Ben Stokes is his first choice to lead the Test team after Joe Root stepped down as captain on Friday, but if the all-rounder is unwilling to take over the captaincy, then the quick Bowler Stuart Broad should be considered for the role.

Broad can also become the new captain – Hussain

Hussain felt that after Root led the England Test team for five years, it was time for a change and Stokes would be the ideal candidate to replace the outgoing captain. Hussain told the Daily Mail on Saturday that Root was a brilliant captain and had won more Tests than anyone else in the history of England.

Root abruptly left the captaincy

Hussain said, ‘Root is scoring runs continuously, which has often proved difficult for the captains of England. As he admitted on Friday. Root should be proud that he has done a wonderful job as captain of England. The former captain said that it was great that Root was a prolific run-scorer, but winning the Test was more important, which was not happening.

Root showed great form

In recent times, Root has shown great form with the bat, winning him the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year award in 2021. During his tenure, Root scored 5,295 Test runs including 14 centuries to become England’s highest run-scorer as captain. But the defeat in Tests kept on increasing, with England winning just one of the last 17.
