As England go 20 overs without a boundary, fans take a dig at Bazball

The England Cricket Team made a statement, with Brendon McCullum taking on the coaching role. Attack, attack, and attack: the mantra worked wonders in Pakistan as England went on to pile up runs. But Ben Stokes & Co. were set for the ultimate test in India. And what did they get in the India vs. England 1st Test? Ravichandran Ashwin, RavindraJadeja, and Axar Patel put a spin choke on England. Forget Bazball; England had a run rate of just 1.89 in the second session, and it took them 27.2 overs to score a boundary.
In short, Bazball has failed its ultimate test, at least so far in India. Ben Duckett did try his hand to do that. However, barring his 39-ball 35, there was no bazballing or attacking intent from the England Cricket Team. Instead, the likes of Olli Pope looked nervous, and others failed to withstand the brilliance of India’s spin trio in the India vs. England 1st Test in Hyderabad. And England captain Ben Stokes himself went on a 52-delivery drought to score a boundary.
Fans take a dig at England. While many, including India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, are fans of the England Cricket Team’s ‘Bazball’ approach, Indian fans had a field day.
One of the fans wrote, "The session run rate is now 1.89. Bazball quiet against India,” another fan wrote. “So beautiful. So elegant. Just looking like a WOWWWTFF
