Joe Root has resigned as England cricket captain
The confrontation between England and the West Indies in the test format was over on March 24. The British lost this series with a score of 0-1. After some downtime, the leader of the “three lions team” made an important statement: Joe Root has resigned as England cricket captain.
“I had period to think, and thought seriously. I decided to resign as commander of the England national squad. I have never made such difficult decisions in my career, but I have discussed everything with my loved ones — my time has come. I understand that couldn’t do anything else right now. I am very proud that I was lucky enough to be the captain of my native country, and I believe that I have written several pages in the history of my national team,” Joe said.
Joe Root became England captain in 2017
Recall that Joe Root became the head of the England national team in 2017. He replaced Alastair Cook in this position.
Note that we will notice England in game only in early June. The England squad will have to gamble with New Zealand in a test format.
