Vaughan on England’s Bazball: ‘Ferrari without Brakes’

Ben Stokes

Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan expressed his support for the Three Lions in the upcoming Ashes series against Australia. He believes that England, under the new management of Brendon McCullum and led by Ben Stokes, will present a tough challenge for the Aussies. Vaughan highlighted England’s aggressive approach, known as ‘Bazball’, which has resulted in 12 wins out of 17 matches. He further stated that Australia will struggle against England’s energetic and aggressive style of play in the forthcoming series.

“It’s very, very difficult to play against, they’re an energised team. They do play with absolutely no fear. They’re a Ferrari … they don’t have a brake in their cars,”

Vaughan said.

Bowling is a real concern: Michael Vaughan

Due to injuries to key bowlers James Anderson, Ollie Robinson, and Mark Wood, Michael Vaughan expressed concerns about England’s vulnerability in the upcoming series. He mentioned that these bowlers have had limited time to practice and may face challenges in their performance against Australia.

“I do have a little bit of a worry about the bowlers because we all know you can be as chilled as you like with the batting in terms of your mental approach, you can be fresh to play and sometimes being fresh is the best kind of mindset. but with bowling, not having the overs in the legs, not having time in the middle in the field, it’s a real concern,”

Vaughan added.

“(James) Anderson has not bowled for weeks, Ollie Robinson has not bowled for weeks, Ben Stokes has not bowled for months, (Mark) Wood has not bowled for months, Moeen Ali (returned from retirement) hasn’t bowled for years and that’s England’s bowling attack. Test cricket is not easy on the body so I’m intrigued to see how they go,”

Vaughan concluded.
