Trevor Bayliss says that Joe Root is under no pressure at all

Joe Root expressed previously that he wanted to continue his captaincy in the team

England team coach Trevor Bayliss spoke about captain Joe Root. His side faced defeat in the fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford. Australia retained the Ashes urn in English soil for the first time since their win in 2001. 

Root said before their defeat at Old Trafford that he wanted to continue as captain of the team. The team captain only managed to score three half-centuries in four Tests. During the last day of the fourth Test, he became the first England captain to score three ducks. 

'He hasn't come under question from anyone making decisions. So he's under no pressure at all’, Bayliss said ahead of the final Test. 

'Everyone goes through periods where they don't make quite as many runs as they would like. I think the Australia team have bowled pretty well to him. We'll see how things go further down the line but from my point of view, he's our premier batter and knowing the Australian way, they always try and target the opposition captain. He's batted well on occasions throughout the series, when he's got a start. I don't see too many problems, really.' he continued. 

After the Ashes 2019, Trevor Bayliss is set to retire from coaching the team. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are currently looking for Bayliss’ successor. 

England and Australia are set to face for their final Ashes Test at The Oval in London. The fifth Test will begin on September 12. The odds are for Australia (-136.99) to win against England (+116). Check out the latest cricket odds at Betwala.
