Virat Kohli and Steve Smith motivate England skipper Joe Root

England skipper Joe Root is inspired by India Test captain Virat Kohli. He says captaincy will take his batting to the “next level”, just as it has done for India’s Virat Kohli and Australia’s Steve Smith. Root was confirmed as England’s new Test skipper, following Alastair Cook’s resignation. It’s a great motivator to make sure I do everything I can to get my batting in the best place possible and set the example for the rest of the guys in the team. Root said “You look at other guys who have taken similar roles like Virat and Steve Smith and they’ve gone on to bigger and better things and taken their game to the next level. I don’t see why I can’t look at it in the same light. “It’s a great opportunity to take that added responsibility and really motivate me to get better. Every kid dreams of being England captain one day… I’m just really looking forward to getting my teeth into it and putting my mark on things.
