“Can They Consistently Do That In Every Country They Tour”- Ravichandran Ashwin On England’s Bazball Approach


The English side earned a positive outcome in the first Test match against Pakistan in Rawalpindi on a calm track with nothing to give the bowlers, according to Indian star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. In the three-match Test series, England was able to win the game and establish a 1-0 lead. 

Beginning with an extremely aggressive strategy, England scored 507 runs in just 75 overs on Day 1 before poor lighting forced an early stop to the day.

During the course of the game, England scored 921 runs at an astounding run rate of 6.7, according to Ravichandran Ashwin, who commented on the situation on his YouTube channel. If England had been vying for a spot in the WTC final, it is still unclear if they would have taken the same strategy. 

Ravichandran Ashwin Looking Forward To Seeing More Of Bazball

Ashwin claimed that Michael Atherton had stated that England will continue to play this aggressive style of cricket, and the decision has been made jointly by the Test captain and the coach, regardless of the circumstance or the playing surface available. Ravichandran Ashwin said:

“Michael Atherton has said that they will play like this everywhere. During the Test match, Bazid Khan said that England had nothing to lose from this Test match as they are not in contention for the WTC final to which Atherton replied that McCullum and Ben Stokes has decided that is going to be their approach going forward.

“In fact, no matter how the pitch is, it looked like they will play this way and take the pitch out of the equation. That what England exactly did. Looking forward to seeing more of Bazball. We will see how Bazball goes and in what approach it goes because in this Test match, England scored 921 runs in 137 overs at 6.7 RPO. Can you believe it? “ 

Ravichandran Ashwin Unsure Regarding Bazball Approach In Different Conditions 

While Ravichandran Ashwin thinks that England have selected a technique that suits their style, he is still not convinced whether the approach will be sustainable in every scenario. 

Being victorious in Rawalpindi on such a flat surface would undoubtedly go a long way toward making England one of the strongest Test teams. England have played all of their games at home since McCullum was appointed Test coach.

“They are playing the way that would suit them using the marketability and stuff. But until this Test, they largely played on home soil. But this game was played in Pakistan and to produce thus result here has impressed many people,” Ravichandran Ashwin said. 

“Many people are saying that this is the way Test cricket should be played. But as far as I am concerned, can they consistently do that in every country they tour? Say South Africa, Australia, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka,” he added.
