Stokes expected to be named England Test captain today

Ben Stokes is expected to be named the new Test captain of the England men's cricket team on Thursday after holding positive talks with managing director Rob Key.

The 30-year-old Stokes wants the job and is understood to be the standout candidate and credible option after Joe Root's resignation from the role following the Test series loss in the West Indies earlier this year.

Key is set to speak to the media for the first time in his new role as MD of England men's cricket on Thursday. Stokes is not expected to be there.

Meanwhile, the England and Wales Cricket Board has placed a job advertisement which confirms two head coaches will be appointed, one for Test cricket and another for the limited-overs formats.
