Ben Stokes urges aspiring Test players to match England’s aggressive approach

Ben Stokes watched as England bury New Zealand under a blizzard of boundaries to win the third Test and complete a series clean sweep before calling on professional players across the country to adopt the same ultra-aggressive approach , if they have international ambitions of their own.

“I knew everyone would buy into the mindset that me and Brendan [McCullum] Wanted to be out of this team but I didn’t think it would go so well. “I think these last three matches should have sent a message to those who aspire to play Test cricket for England at least in the next two or three years.

“I would say it’s the way you play, whether it’s the ball or the bat in your hand, not necessarily your stats. Because what we want to do is based on that, and it’s only about the moment No, it’s about the future too.”

A target of 296, a much higher molehill than a mountain at Headingley, England became the first side to chase down 250 three times in a series.

“If we had been on the wrong side of the results in these games, if they played the same way, but we lost, I would have gone with a very happy captain, the way everyone applied themselves, the way He applied himself. I’ve given these three matches every single day, every single session, every single hour,” Stokes said. “I think the people watching know they have to knock on the door and come into this team.” What to do to try.”

Jonny Bairstow scored an unbeaten 44-ball 71 as England’s first series under Stokes’ captaincy and McCullum’s stint as coach ended with great pace. Throughout the series, Yorkshire scored 394 runs at a strike rate of 120 and an average of 78.8. “Johnny knows what he needs to do in the team right now and he knows how he wants to play,” Stokes said.

“That is something that he is capable of doing in white-ball cricket and he is playing like he has got his colours. to back it up a wonderful knock [in the second Test] There was something special at Trent Bridge this week with performances in both innings.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson wondered how his team went from handing England 55 for six in their first innings to 274 runs at the top, to beat the game emphatic. “In the last three games we have found ourselves in a strong position and probably ahead of the game, and there have been some incredible counterattacks that have turned out to be massive for England,” he said.

“This game in particular, where we gave them 55 for six and then in two sessions saw the game swing so fast… It was hard to stop. Many times we have played poorly and came up with better results But the credit goes to England and the way they really made their mark at the crucial moments.

With Ben Fox recovering from Covid, Sam Billings has been added to the otherwise unchanged England squad for the Test against India, which begins at Edgbaston on Friday.
