New England Test captain Joe Root is ideally suited to the role, says former skipper Michael Vaughan.

Root, 26, takes over from Alastair Cook despite having led in only four first-class matches – three for Yorkshire and one for England Lions.

“People who say he’s not quite ready are talking nonsense. He’s driven and got the right attitude,” ex-Yorkshire batsman Vaughan told BBC Radio 5 live.
