Root: I want to captain in next Ashes

Root: I want to captain in next Ashes Joe Root is determined to captain England in the next Ashes series and "be at the front" of their bid to regain the urn. Root has now skippered England in two Ashes campaigns - the 4-0 thrashing down under in 2017-18 and then the 2-2 draw this summer, which was sealed with a 135-run win at The Oval on Sunday. "Absolutely. I am very much driven towards that," said Root when asked by Sky Sports' Michael Atherton whether he wanted to lead England into the 2021-22 Ashes.

Joe Root has called on England to send outgoing head coach Trevor Bayliss on his way 'with a real big bang' by drawing the Ashes at The Oval.

This week marks the end of the series, the end of the international summer and the end of Bayliss' four-year reign.

His time in charge is destined to be remembered for a phenomenal improvement in white-ball cricket, capped off by this summer's World Cup win at Lord's, while the Test side has struggled to touch the same heights.

Having won the Ashes in his first series in charge, Bayliss will watch his native Australia lift the urn in his last but England can still deny them the satisfaction of a first outright victory on these shores since 2001.

Trevor Bayliss will step down as England head coach in September 2019 after the World Cup and Bayliss was hired to forge a World Cup-winning team but believes it is wrong to pigeonhole him as a Ballance would be a curious fall guy given he did not feature against Australia in the Tests but

'We need to celebrate what Trevor has done throughout his tenure and as players we need to send him off with a real big bang,' said Root.

'He has had a massive influence here and he will be sorely missed by all the players that have had a chance to work with him.'

England have made two alterations to the side that went down fighting at Old Trafford last week, with Jason Roy and Craig Overton axed in favour of Sam Curran and Chris Woakes.

Roy's ousting at his home ground is the most significant decision, but owes as much to Ben Stokes' injured right shoulder as it does to his run of low scores.

Hopes were high that the batsman could transfer his dominant performances in the one-day arena to Test whites but, in averaging 13.75 in eight innings, he was the most vulnerable when it became clear Stokes' bowling would be compromised in the coming days.

Bayliss: Players more suited to ODIs

Bayliss: Players more suited to ODIs Trevor Bayliss insists England work hard on their Test-match batting - but need help from pitches in county cricket. England have flourished in the white-ball arena under Bayliss, culminating in the World Cup win at Lord's in July when Ben Stokes inspired a victory over New Zealand. But they have sometimes stuttered in Test cricket and have been skittled for 85 and 67 by Ireland and Australia respectively this summer.

England coach promotes a laid-back, hands- off image to reduce pressure on his team and tells Donald McRae ‘you need to surround yourself with people who have strengths in areas that you don’t’. In the three years since he became England ’s head coach the Australian has remained a reserved presence.

England captain Joe Root and coach Trevor Bayliss are looking for ways to avoid an Ashes To give Tom Curran a test debut at the MCG would be a gamble by a management group that drops Bayliss will know he is in the firing line for the first time as coach . Off -field incidents have drained him

That made his fellow all-rounder, Curran, a must-pick and forced an early end to the Roy experiment.

'Jason is the unfortunate one to miss out,' said Root.

'He is very aware of where he is at and what he needs to do to get himself in the best place to perform in Test cricket. He's had an opportunity to come in and play Test cricket, get a feel for it, and it has not gone quite how he would have liked.

'But I'm sure he will go away and work extremely hard and come again. That is what you expect of guys when they get left out and I'm sure he will have that attitude and want to try and prove a point and get himself back into the side.'

Australia have confirmed at least one change of their own, with Mitch Marsh replacing Travis Head in the middle order. Captain Tim Paine has made it quite clear he is gunning for a 3-1 scoreline and is not happy to settle for less.

Morgan to captain England in World T20

  Morgan to captain England in World T20 World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan is committed to leading England through to the ICC World Twenty20 World Cup, says Ashley Giles. Morgan said he was undecided on his international future after guiding England to their first global 50-over title in May, admitting the campaign had left him "knackered".But after a period of reflection the 33-year-old will continue as skipper for at least another year to oversee England's bid for an historic limited-overs double by winning the T20 World Cup - a trophy won by Paul Collingwood's team in 2012.

Alastair Cook has stepped down from his role as England ’s Test captain after 59 Tests, saying “ We left that meeting with me urging him to take a bit more time. He contacted me again over the last 10 But with only three matches as captain at Yorkshire, and the fact Root will need to juggle his career

Trevor Bayliss insisted he remains the right head coach to take England ’s Test team forward after a seventh successive defeat away from home saw a rampant Australia side regain the Ashes with two matches to spare.

'We're very hungry for this, we've already spoken about the fact that we came here to win the Ashes not just retain them,' said Paine.

'Last week's result was brilliant and we played very well but all our guys are fully aware this Test is bigger than that one. This is our grand final.'
