Ben Stokes doesnt want to be England captain with James Anderson set to return to Test cricket on Boxing Day

BEN STOKES has no desire to be England captain but would take the role if asked.

The talismanic all-rounder, 28, is happy with his status as deputy to Test skipper Joe Root.

Anderson could be back for Boxing Day while Stokes doesn’t want captaincy

Stokes revealed: I could never say no but its not one of those things Im desperate to do. Weve got a great leader in Joe.

Being the Test captain of England…so much pressure comes with it.

Its a huge burden to carry because everything falls back on you.

Meanwhile, James Anderson is eyeing the Boxing Day Test with South Africa to make his England return.

Englands all-time leading wicket-taker managed just four overs of the first Ashes Test against Australia.
