Star all-rounder Ben Stokes said his style of play would not change even if he captained England in the absence of regular captain Joe Root in the first match of the Test series against the West Indies.
Root will not play in the first Test, starting on July 8, due to the birth of his second child, in whose place Stokes could be given the captaincy. Stokes told the BBC, “I always want to set an example by my commitment and way of playing. Even after getting the captaincy, my method will not change. '
Stokes, who was the hero of England's stunning victories in the World Cup and Ashes series last year, said, “I want to leave a positive impact both in batting and bowling.” Whatever I am doing according to the situation, I choose a positive path. '
If Stokes captains, he will be the first all-rounder to command the team after Andrew Flintoff. He became vice-captain in 2017 but lost his spot after a clash outside a nightclub in Bristol.
He said, 'It is a matter of responsibility to captain England. Even if once in life I get a chance to say yes I have captained England. ”He said,“ There are many experienced players in our team from whom I will take opinion. Decisions taken by the advice of all are good. '
