No Idea what ‘bazzball’ means : Brendon McCullum (English Coach)

While speaking to Adam Gilcrist on Breakfast. The Coach said. “No, I don’t have any idea what Bazball is, having a bit of a go, but the boys have been fantastic, couldn’t have asked for a better start really. I’m sure that our guys will try and still maintain a really positive approach. I think the real key is not just the crash and burn if we look at the approach of how the guys have done it.

That’s why I don’t really like that silly term that people are throwing out there, because there’s actually quite a bit of thought that goes into how the guys manufacture their performances and when they put pressure on bowlers and which bowlers, they put pressure on. There’s also times where they’ve absorbed pressure beautifully as well,”

Since the selection of the new captaina and the coach for red-ball game. England have won all the test matches played.
