“I believe it’s a great appointment” – Root on head coach Chris Silverwood
England captain Joe Root thinks that appointing Chris Silverwood as a head coach of England Cricket Team has been a perfect decision by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and also expresses his happiness about the decision.
“I’m pleased for Silverwood. He’s done some brilliant work since he’s been engaged with the group. “I’m sure you’ve heard every one of the reports on him: he’s very thorough, very efficient, he knows precisely how he wants to take the team forward. He has a generally excellent relationship with the folks, and I believe that conveys a great deal of weight and goes far,” Root said.
Chris Silverwood had been appointed as the new head coach for England by England Cricket Board, replacing Trevor Bayliss last week. Silverwood took over as England fast bowling coach under Trevor Bayliss early last year and it was announced on Monday last week that he had been the man to succeed the Australian.
Silverwood is an accomplished campaigner in this field. He had been the coach of Essex previously in the Cpunty Championship in 2017 and furthermore guided them to win the T20 Blast and County Championship. Root appears to recognize the way that Silverwood, alongside his bowling ability, has great all-around learning of the game which will be useful for the group.
“He’s very knowledgeable, not just about his bowlers and how to take 20 wickets, however about cricket in general. He has a generally excellent record in the County Championship with Essex, in the two years he was there. I believe it’s a great appointment.”
