Stokes was adamant that England had no plans to modify its style against Pat Cummins’s powerful side during the five-match series, which starts in Birmingham on Friday.
England captain Ben Stokes insists there will be no stop- up in his side’s dynamic ‘ Bazball ’ approach during the Ashes series againstarch-rivals Australia.
Stokes and trainer Brendon McCullum have overseen 11 triumphs from 13 Tests since they joined forces, with England’sultra-aggressive style dubbed Bazball in reference to former New Zealand captain McCullum’s surname.
All- rounder Stokes, a stager of several Ashes juggernauts, told apre-match press conference at Edgbaston on Thursday “ moment has been the most relaxed the group has felt. We’re really agitated to get going, it’s been a long time coming. ”
He added “ What we’ve done over the last time is show how we want to play. We set up a way that we’re suitable to get the stylish out of the platoon and also the individualities. ”
Ashes- holders Australia last week defeated India in the World Test Championship final at The Oval.
But Stokes was adamant that England had no plans to modify their style against Pat Cummins’s important side during the five- match series, which starts in Birmingham on Friday.
“We get asked if we will continue to play this way against this opposition or that opposition, ” he said.
“This is how England play. It’s worked further than it’s not. There’s no mistrustfulness about how we’re going to play against Australia. ”
The Blockbuster Ashes 2023 is set to get underway with the first Test to be played on June 16 at Edgbaston in Birmingham. England’s Bazball will be over against recently culminated Test titleholders Australia as the stakes go grandly in the world of justice. Two justice titans and two topmost rivals will have a crack at each other over the period of a month and a half in a important-awaited Test series. Let’s see how these two can go about their business in the opening Test.
One and a partial time ago, Australia was the same platoon that broke the reverse of English justice with a thumping 4- 0 palm in the 2021- 22 Ashes at home. But the England justice platoon has come a long way from that humiliating loss and have thrashed resistances like anything. They made a change to their captaincy and along with Brendon McCullum as the head trainer, have been a platoon to beat in the format. England have won their last 11 of the 13 Test matches under the cooperation of Ben Stokes and McCullum and have beaten nearly everyone that has come their way.
But Australia is a different platoon. The Aussies are the lately culminated World Test titleholders and are ready to take on the Bazball approach. After Australia’s WTC Final win, former captain Steve Smith had stated that it would be delicate for England to go with the same approach against us and they’re yet to do it against us. For England it’ll be a fight to break the 8- time- hex as they’ve not been suitable to win an Ashes series since 2015.
