Joe Root shared his expectations from the match with India
Ex-captain of the England national club Joe Root shared his expectations from the match with India, which will be this Friday in Birmingham. The 31-year-old English national team player noted that he trusts Ben Stokes.
“Our first matches under the leadership of Brendon McCullum turned out to be very successful, which, of course, pleases us all. Now the England club is at the peak of its form, and there is a feeling that we are ready to beat any opponent. Ben Stokes feels great as captain and I have full confidence in him,” Joe Root said.

The match with India will be a serious test
The duel with the India national team was supposed to take place last year, but then there was an outbreak of coronavirus in the line-up of the national squad of India, which did not allow the series to end.
Joe noted that the match with India will be a serious test for a renewed England.
“The India national club is a very difficult opponent. Yes, we had a great series with New Zealand, but Rahul Dravid’s team is one of the best in the world. We will do everything possible to prove that we are ready to compete on equal terms with the strongest clubs on the planet,” Joe Root said.
