Denly confirms Root to bat at three for Ashes opener

England batsman Joe Denly speaks ahead of the first Ashes test against Australia, which begins at Edgbaston on Thursday.

Denly has confirmed he will drop to number four in England’s Ashes opener, with captain Joe Root replacing him in the top three.

Root is understood to have approached head coach Trevor Bayliss following the Test victory over Ireland at Lord’s and offered to take up his old role at first wicket down.
