After becoming England's most successful Test captain, Joe Root says he won't be relinquishing the reins any time soon.
Root overtook Michael Vaughan with his 27th win from 55 games in charge after England crushed India by an innings and 76 runs in the third Test at Headingley on Saturday.
England had arrived at Headingley win-less in their last seven outings at the venue, 1-0 down in the five-game series after a bruising defeat at Lord's and with a host of first choice players unavailable.
What unfolded was a superb team performance, with their attack setting up a win on day one by routing India for 78 before Root hit 121 - his sixth century of the year - to steer his side to 432 in response.
A partial India fightback on Friday threatened to make a game of it but England were ruthless on the fourth morning, with Ollie Robinson claiming 5-65 - and 7-81 for the match - as the visitors lost 8-63 in their second dig.
After England levelled the series, Root surpassed the likes of Vaughan (26 wins), Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook (both 24) to take top spot as England's Test captain with the most victories.
"I'm living my boyhood dream captaining England," said Root.
"I couldn't be more proud to have gone past Michael but you don't do that on your own as a captain, it's down to the group of players and the coaching staff as well.
"You're the one making the decisions but they are the ones going out, time and time again putting in performances. I'm really proud of the way they have done that this week.
"I'm sat here now at 1-1 with a big, smiley dressing-room and two big games ahead of us."
Root is now five Tests away from overtaking his predecessor Sir Alastair Cook as England's longest-serving skipper.
"It's been a very challenging period throughout my tenure as captain, there has been a lot to contend with, a lot around the games, and not necessarily all the full focus has been on the field," Root said.
"But that's part and parcel of the job. I haven't put a time limit on it (captaincy).
"As long as I am enjoying it, as long as we feel like we are moving in the right direction and that I am the right man for it in my own mind, I am more than happy to keep doing it."
The series moves on to the Kia Oval starting on Thursday.
