England didn’t trust their defence: Wasim Jaffer


As informed to Devendra Pandey

Most of the batsmen had been out to the straighter ball. England had gained the toss and so they had an awesome likelihood of scoring massive, like they did in Chennai. No crew coming to the sub-continent ought to anticipate inexperienced tracks. They are anticipated to play on turning tracks. Sometimes I really feel visiting groups complain loads. When we went to Australia, one among their gamers had remarked ‘Come and play in Gabba.’ It’s their power and so they wished to make use of it. When we go to England will we get inexperienced tops?

I agree with Rohit Sharma that groups will play to their strengths in house circumstances. The present Indian bowling assault is the perfect bowling assault on the earth. Be it spin or seam, we’re the perfect.

I really feel England batted badly within the first innings. They had brain-fade moments. Probably they had been overthinking. At the identical time, they relied closely on Joe Root and Ben Stokes to ship. If they don’t rating, the opposite guys don’t have that have of batting for lengthy hours in sub-continent circumstances. They didn’t trust their defence, which is a key to success in Test cricket. I felt the pitch was not that dangerous. If England had scored some 250 odd runs within the first innings, it could have been Test match. There isn’t any level in blaming pitch.

Look at soil earlier than taking part in 4 pacers: Amol Muzumdar

More than pitch, the issue lies elsewhere. This England crew has come right here with textbook plans. But it doesn’t at all times work. It is like they’ve written down one thing and so they wish to observe that. That is idea. But it is very important assume on one’s ft. In the pink-ball take a look at, they performed 4 quick bowlers. At least look out on the soil. If on a dry pitch one crew performs 4 quick bowlers, they’ll run into issues. After successful the primary Test match, they had been in place however they’re simply following a selected plan with out utilizing cricketing sense.
