Joe Root defends Silverwood, pressure on both captain and coach to step down

After the poor performance in the Ashes series being played in Australia, the England team is in constant question. The sword is also hanging on captain Joe Root and coach Chris Silverwood. Continuously former England players are demanding to replace the current England captain and coach. The departure of England coach Chris Silverwood is almost certain. However, current England Test captain Joe Root has backed Silverwood to continue as coach after the Ashes. Coach Silverwood could not join the team in Sydney due to Corona being infected. When England captain Root was asked if he would like to see Silverwood as a coach even after the Ashes, Root replied, "Yes, I would absolutely like to see him as a coach after the Ashes." Without him, this week has been very difficult for the players of the team and for the coach himself.
