Ben Stokes said that It’s actually very exciting to know that the way in which we are playing our cricket couldn’t be more perfect for the situation we find ourselves in.

“We have to win these three games to get this urn back. We’re a team who are obviously willing to put ourselves out there and do things against the narrative. Now, these three games are an even better opportunity for us than we’ve ever found ourselves in before,” he added.
“Being in those two games, I was able to take experiences from those two innings, particularly from Headingley. Just sort of going about it in a similar way, look to take my boundary options and also try and get some twos and get off strike towards the back end of the over,” Stokes added.

“The one thing I did find hard today was finding the gaps for the twos, the fields that Pat (Cummins) was setting were quite hard to push the twos, I think I only got two away. Obviously, I had to take some huge risks at times because everyone was on the boundary so I just had to imagine there wasn’t anyone there and try to go over the top of them,” the English skipper concluded.
The England cricketers will try their best to give the comeback and prove their strength in Home conditions. The Bazball theory did not go in favor of their side. However, this does not mean that Bazball is overrated and not efficient against the big teams. It worked well against the Pakistan team, but considering the lineup of the Aussies it is a bit of a challenge for Ben Stokes and his team.
