Joe Root replaces Alastair Cook as England's Test captain
Root replaced Alastair Cook who quit last week after leading England in a record 59 tests over four and a half years during which he enjoyed some success, with two Ashes victories and a rare triumph in India, but struggled to impose a definitive style of leadership on his side.
I think England cricket fans will be saying "yeah we love his captaincy but we want him to continue scoring runs", said Hussain, with Root now averaging an impressive 52.80 in Tests."It generally follows a pattern where initially there's a massive lift in performance but for mostEngland captains if there's a dip in form of the team then the weight of responsibility and the pressure lands on your shoulders. Root has scored 4,594 runs in 53 tests at an average of 52.80 and there have been fears that the captaincy could affect his prolific batsmanship.
Root, who became England's 80 Test captain, will have Ben Stokes as his deputy. "I feel privileged, humbled and very excited" ESPNcricinfo quoted Root as saying.
But he has scored well at home, both in The Ashes and in Test cricket generally, averaging almost 60 with the bat in England.
Root will not start in the role until July 7 with the first Test of the summer against South Africa and will have only seven Tests [four against the Proteas and three against West Indies] before taking his side to defend the Ashes down under.

Strauss, the team director, chose Root after canvassing the opinion of other senior players including Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler.
"He is universally respected by his team-mates, passionate about driving the Test team forward and extremely excited about the prospect of leading his country".
There's also a salute from the balcony for Ben Stokes, plus some concern for a Sky Sports cameraman who took a tumble, and significantly less of it when his former captain Alastair Cook is struck in an uncompromising position. In limited overs cricket, Eoin Morgan continues to remain the England skipper.
