England’s new captain, Joe Root, has stated he is happy for his predecessor Alastair Cook to remain in the side.
Root, 26, said: "I think Cook will be great. He's done a fantastic job and I've inherited a side that's so settled - he has to take a lot of credit for that. I've got fantastic senior players. Alastair is a great person to go to - he will let me get on with it and do it my own way.”
Root, also playing domestically for Yorkshire, took over from Cook in February, who retired as captain after a record 59 games at the helm.
