London: Stuart Broad has said it is important for England’s players to back new Test captain Alastair Cook.

Cook, who replaced Andrew Strauss, will lead England in four Tests and five one-day internationals in India starting next month.

Broad said: “It’s crucial players get behind Alastair and get him off on the right foot.

“Alastair has done really well with the one-day side. I’m sure he’ll embrace Strauss’ leadership style and add his own style.”

Twenty20 skipper Broad also hinted at his interest in the vice-captaincy of the team, the Sun reports.

He said: “It’s an important role. I enjoyed being captain at the World Twenty20.”
