England Test Coach Brendon McCullum supports Stokes


Brendon McCullum finds nothing wrong in Ben Stokes’ abrupt retirement from the ODIS. Stokes last ODI appearance was against South Africa at Chester-le-Street. Though his last ODI match wasn’t in favour of him. England not only lost ta match, but Ben also failed to contribute both with the bat and ball.

Brendon McCullum blows away quitting as “trend”

Baz told the SENZ Breakfast,

I don’t know if it’s symbolic of where the game itself is at around the globe, but I see it as an absolute positive to be honest.”

According to him, there’s not too many all format players. Stoke, as believed by Baz is “luxurious” enough to represent all formats for such a long time. Baz also mentioned,

“…but also with the demands of the schedules and with his heightened schedule as Test Captain. it would’ve become too much. He also has a young family and there’s a lot going on.

Not only that, Baz appreciates Stokes’s decision focusfocus mainly on Test

Noble play for Stokes, believes Baz

Baz believes that Stokes “is going to have the time to really immerse himself in the Test side”. He said,

Stokes is the skipper of our Test side and the job that I’ve seen him do with this team in a very short period of time really excites me about what he can do with this side, particularly now that he’ll have more available time rather than jumping from series to series to series.”

He also added,

I also think it’s a real mark of respect of the man that he’s sort of bucking the trend of the short version of the game and actually trying to focus on what he sees as a huge task trying to get Test cricket back to the levels, or even exceed the levels, that it’s had in the past.
“I think it’s a noble play from him.’
