James Anderson has backed Joe Root to succeed Alastair Cook as Test captain and believes the batsman is England’s “best player by a long way”.

Cook resigned as captain and the ECB will announce his replacement before the one-day international tour of the West Indies later this month.

Yorkshire batsman Root – who became a father for the first time recently – is the hot favourite to replace the opener as skipper, and James Anderson has backed his credentials to lead the England side.joe-root
