Give Joe Root A Break From Captaincy, Says David Lloyd

By IANS News March 28, 2022 • 14:58 PM View: 860

Former England cricketer David Lloyd wants Joe Root to take a break from captaincy to concentrate on his batting following another Test series loss, this time against the West Indies. The 75-year-old Lloyd added that England's top order was "a mess", which was forcing Root to move up at No.3 and resulting in his cheap dismissals.

West Indies registered a 10-wicket win on the fourth day of the third Test at Granada after the first two drawn matches to secure a 1-0 series win over England on Sunday. Needing just 28 runs for a win after bowling England out for 120 in the second innings, West Indies' openers -- Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell chased down the target in 4.5 overs as the game ended within the first session on Day 4.
