Birmingham. England captain Ben Stokes says he knows what it takes to beat India but insists it is more important for him than winning a match. Because they are trying to give a new look to Test cricket with their style of play. England, looking in a new form under the guidance of Brendon McCullum and the aggressive captaincy of Stokes, made a clean sweep after beating New Zealand 3-0 in their previous series at home a few days ago. The Indian team is leading 2-1 in the series (IND vs ENG) and this all-rounder showed confidence that they would level the series.
Ben Bastox said before the match, ‘We know for sure that we need to win this match to draw the series. But as you know, I said at the end of last week that right now we are thinking bigger than the result. We are thinking bigger than what is happening on the field. We definitely want to win every match but it is more than that. This match was postponed in September last year due to the arrival of Kovid-19 cases.
enjoy our game
He said that I think the kind of cricket we play. In the last 3 weeks have managed to transform her into a new look. Stokes said that we want people to enjoy the game by watching us play. I think people are enjoying playing us because they don’t know what is going to happen next but they know how we are going to play. Stokes does not agree that the Indian team is a step ahead of New Zealand and says that a change in the rival team will not change his style of play.
we beat the best team
Ben Stokes said that we have recently defeated the best team in the world (New Zealand). The Indian team is definitely a completely different team, but we are focusing on ourselves. He said that we understand what we do well, but we also look at who we are playing against. But changing the antithesis does not mean that we should change.
IND vs ENG: In the form of Jos Buttler, England also got a new captain, the first encounter with India itself
IND vs ENG: Like Kapil Dev, Bumrah is also going to start from abroad as Test captain, what is the result?
He said that I was not watching cricket last summer. I haven’t seen much of it (India-England match). But there is one thing with India that it was interesting to see the way Virat (Kohli) led the team in Tests. So I am ready to compete again. It is known that in the match, Team India will be led by the new captain Jasprit Bumrah.
