England coach Chris Silverwood believes star all-rounder Ben Stokes will prove to be the best captain in the first cricket Test against the West Indies starting on 8 July.
Regular captain Joe Root will not play the first Test due to the birth of his second child. England's World Cup hero Stokes was named Root for the first Test on Tuesday. Root, who has never been a captain in first-class cricket, will take charge of the team for the first time.
Silverwood told 'The Guardian' newspaper, “I think he will prove to be a great captain. He leads from the front. He also has to get the best out of his players.
He said, “We know he has an aggressive nature but he has an equal understanding of cricket. I will help him in every way. ”He also told that Jos Buttler will be the vice-captain of England in this match.
