Despite being beaten 4-0 by Australia in the Ashes series, England's Joe Root has promised to keep as Test captain.
On Sunday, England lost ten wickets for 56 runs, losing the fifth Test by 146 runs and losing the series.
There have been growing calls for Root to resign his captaincy and focus on his batting, allowing someone with new ideas to take over.
Ben Stokes, the only standout candidate for the role, indicated early in the series that he didn't want the job and supported Root.
Root was clear that he wanted to add to his record tally of 61 Tests in charge of England following the heavy defeat in Hobart.
"I'll say it, as a group, we're going through a really tough time," Root admitted. "Our attention and performance have been poor, but I'd want the chance to change things around." I honestly believe I am the best choice to lead this team forward, but if that decision is made for me, so be it. But I'm strong enough to keep going."
Root believes that an English cricket mindset change is necessary if the Test squad is to progress, irrespective of the next captain.
"We have a great opportunity to promote Test cricket and make a really big change to the game as a result of this," he said.
Root wouldn't say what he feels needs to happen, but he did say he'd talk to management before the West Indies' three-match series in March.
