Chris Silverwood Talks About Helping Joe Root

The head coach will be supported by the new support staff

England’s new head coach Chris Silverwood spoke about supporting the team’s Test skipper Joe Root. He said that it is his number one priority. The 44-year-old was appointed by the England Cricket Board for the coaching position after Trevor Bayliss’ departure.

‘Job number one is helping Joe. We've got a lot of support around Joe, but to keep moving forward so that in two years' time we can go to Australia and make a real impact’, Silverwood said. 

‘I think there's a good relationship between myself and the two captains (Root and Eoin Morgan), and I've got a strong relationship with all the players and backroom staff’, he added.

Silverwood also talked about finding a way to improve the team’s batting in order to secure their success in the Test series. With the help of the advice he learned from other coaches, he will put the right people on where they belong. 

The team is expected to have new members in their support staff which include Paul Collingwood and batting coach Graham Thorpe. 

Silverwood’s first assignment will be the team’s tour in New Zealand. They will play five T20I and two Test matches. To know more about cricket formats, read the page on Betwala.
