BBC Sport - Ireland v England: James Taylor says captaincy a 'treat and honour'

England captaincy 'treat' for Taylor

England batsman James Taylor says it is a "treat and honour" to captain England in Friday's one-day international against Ireland in Dublin.

The Nottinghamshire right-hander knows that the appointment is "by default" with England's Test team returning from the West Indies, but still describes it as a "special moment".

England drew the recent Test series 1-1 with the West Indies to continue a difficult winter that saw them fail to progress from the group stages of the World Cup.
