*Official* England in NZ 2023


U19 Captain
Urg. I have a bad feeling about this New Zealand innings. I honestly can’t bring myself to turn the feed back on.

have to say bazball is stunningly effective...wouldn't be surprised if other teams try to mimic the approach...


International Debutant
Gotta feel for foakes tbh. Ignored for buttler for so long, and he's most likely gonna get dropped when bairstow get's back despite averaging 47 and counting since baz took over while crawley continues to be a passenger.
I would like to think not. My theory of Bazball is that the approach in the field is woefully underplayed/overlooked by commentators and fans alike. A big part of it is prioritising taking wickets above all and that goes hand in hand with having the best keeper in the team.
