New England captain Joe Root says he will seek the advice of his predecessors before taking charge for the first time in July.

The 26-year-old has replaced Alastair Cook despite only leading in four previous first-class matches.

Root told BBC Sport that it would be silly not to talk to people who have been in this position before.

He also added that he may speak to a few people away from cricket to get different perspectives on things.
