In the last 18 months, the England team was losing Tests continuously. With the crushing defeat in the Ashes, the team also lost in India. He also lost against Windies. After this, Brendon McCullum got the coaching of the team. Bazball is an ideology, which has brought England to such a situation by taking the team out of the pit. Badge is McCullum’s nickname. From that the name derives. England have won all four Test matches since he took over as coach.
Question asked to Rahul Dravid
After India’s defeat, our teammate Vimal Kumar, who was present in England, questioned Rahul Dravid about this. He asked- Badgeball, Badgeball… You have heard about that, many people are saying that this will completely change cricket. In response to this, Rahul Dravid said – I do not know what it is. After his reply, everyone present in the press conference laughed. Dravid then said, ‘I would definitely say that the kind of cricket he has been playing in the last few months has been really good. They have been good in chasing the target.
Dravid further said – Chasing the target in the fourth innings in England is not easy. Whatever brand of cricket one wants to play, it depends a lot on the players and the kind of form they are in at the moment. When players are in good form, you play a more positive game, as we did in the innings where Pant and Jadeja were batting.
