This morning the ECB named Ben has captain of England’s Men’s Test team.
Ben succeeds his good friend Joe Root as leader of the national Test side.
On the ECB website Ben said,
“I am honoured to be given the chance to lead the England Test team. This is a real privilege, and I’m excited about getting started this summer.
“I want to thank Joe (Root) for everything he has done for English Cricket and for always being a great ambassador for the sport all across the world. He has been a massive part of my development as a leader in the dressing room, and he will continue to be a key ally for me in this role.”
Ben is expected to hold a press conference next week.
