Root has also announced Jos Buttler as England's vice-captain for the five-match series.

He was recalled to the Test squad at the start of the summer for the series against Pakistan and scored two half-centuries in three innings.
England captain Joe Root on Adil Rashid
Talking about Rashid, the captain said: “With the amount of right handers in India’s team, Rashid gives us a really attacking spinning option and he’s in confident form.
“He’s gone about his business just as he does in the one-day side, he doesn’t seem affected at all.
“I’ve known Adil for a long time. I think he’s grown as a player massively in the last couple of years, he has a better understanding of what he wants to do.”
On Buttler's elevation to vice-captain, Root added: “Jos is vice-captain of the white-ball side, thinks hugely about the game and is respected in the dressing room.
“We are thinking about the long-term and Jos is a big part of that.”
