Brendon McCullum comments on the upcoming IND vs ENG Test series. England and India will play five Test matches in Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam, Rajkot, Ranchi, and Dharamshala. The IND vs ENG five-Test series will be in India starting January 25. In India, most of the pitches will give a significant spin. England’s batting strategy has been transformed by “Bazball.”


England’s coach, Brendon McCullum, made it evident that the squad would not alter its aggressive tactics regardless of the result. “Collins Dictionary” also features a prominent mention of “Bazball,” a term that originated from McCullum’s nickname “Baz.” The term “Bazball” refers to a style of playing test cricket in which the batting side attempts to gain the initiative by playing aggressively. Brendon McCullum said at the Royal Challengers Bangalore Innovation Lab’s Leaders Meet India that,

“We have got a huge challenge against a very good Indian team in five Tests in India. I am excited about it because you want to test yourself against the best side and I genuinely believe that India is the best in their own condition. It is going to be a good challenge for us. If we have success then fabulous, if we don’t, then I know we will go down in the style that we want to go down” Brendon McCullum further said,

“We are playing the game, because we love cricket and we want to try and be as good at cricket as we possibly can. During the time that you are in the chair, you want to make sure you enjoy it and you shouldn’t wait till the end of your career to do so. We are very lucky that we have had some immediate success but I don’t think it is the ceiling for us”

I think we have seen some guys who have unlocked their potential in the last 18 months or so and that’s what the job is as a leader; to get the most out of the people that you’re in charge of.” Brendon McCullum added
