Ben Stokes admitted on Friday he is not interested in captaining England.
Stokes has emerged as one of the most charismatic and exciting England stars, but isn’t keen to shoulder the responsibility of captaincy.
After playing a key role in England’s historic first 50-over World Cup victory earlier this year, Stokes also shone in the Ashes series against Australia. He currently serves as deputy to Test skipper Joe Root.
“That’s not an aspiration of mine. It’s just not one of those things I’m desperate to do,” Stokes told the BBC’s Today programme.
“You never know how you handle the pressure of being England captain unless you do it.”
