By India Today Sports Desk: Ravichandran Ashwin has delivered his verdict on England’s ‘Bazball’ idea and mentioned that it may falter on sure varieties of wickets.

The England aspect below the management of Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum has been a revelation in Test cricket as they’ve been in a position to shock opponents and put strain on them. They have solely misplaced one match below the brand new regime and has recorded wins in Pakistan.

The group is at present main the collection in opposition to New Zealand and have a agency grip on the second match in Wellington as nicely.

Speaking on the idea, as quoted by NDTV, Ashwin mentioned that Bazball may falter on sure varieties of pitches. The India spinner mentioned that on sure tracks the circumstances have to be revered.

Ashwin concluded by saying that for those who respect the pitch, it is going to respect you again and you may reap the rewards then.

“We now have a concept called Bazball. England is playing high-paced Test match cricket. They want to play a certain style of cricket. But in certain types of wicket, when you try and attack every ball, you will falter. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this approach,”

“Some will ask instead of defending and getting all out for 100, I will slog it out and get all out for 140. We will only know when the game pans out that the approach works or not. Sometimes, on the wicket, conditions need to be respected. If you respect the pitch and play accordingly, the pitch will also respect you. If you respect the pitch, it will pay you dividends,” mentioned Ashwin.

David Gower has mentioned that the largest check for Bazball would be the Ashes.

“The big test for Bazball is against the Australians. The chance that we could do it or not comes up in the next few months. It is going to be interesting. Australia have a very strong bowling attack and have its own exciting batters and have its own positive approach to the game. England will start feeling positive about the chances, that’s the whole culture. They are frightened of losing again because they back themselves to keep winning elsewhere. Should be a fascinating series,” mentioned Gower.
