Cheeky reply from Ben Stokes on England's Bazball tactics against Team India

After the latest success at the oval, captain of the England cricket team Ben Stokes was asked whether his team's Bazball tactics would work against Team India. The 32-year-old gave a rather epic reply to the question of whether his side would stick to their philosophy. India will host Stokes and Co. in February next year as part of their World Test Championship 2023–25 cycle.
Ever since Brandon McCullum took over as coach of the England team and Stokes was appointed their captain, the dynamic duo have completely changed their team’s fortunes. While many doubts remain about England’s Bazball approach, it has helped them win 14 of their 18 Test matches under Stokes and McCullum.
After the victory, Stokes was quizzed about Bazball’s chances of success against Rohit Sharma’s side, and the England captain came up with a cheeky remark.
He said, "I remember when we beat New Zealand 3-0, we couldn’t do it against South Africa, we couldn’t do it against Pakistan, and we couldn’t do it against Australia. So who knows if we can do it against India? Only time will tell."
