Live by the sword and die by it: Michael Clarke urges England to stick to ‘Bazball’ approach

England's Bazball approach was severely criticised following the defeat in Rajkot as many English batters got out playing rash shots. However, Clarke has asked the England team to stick to their style of play.

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke urged the England team to back their ‘Bazball’ approach in order for the Ben Stokes-led team to make a comeback in the ongoing IND vs ENG series. Clarke believes England’s positive approach is their best bet to make a comeback in the series.

England were hammered by hosts India in the IND vs ENG 3rd Test in Rajkot. Rohit Sharma’s team outplayed England to hand the visitors a 434-run drubbing. England, who won the first Test, lost the next two matches and currently trail the series 2-1 in the 5-match Test series.

England’s Bazball approach was severely criticised following the defeat as many English batters got out playing rash shots. However, Clarke has asked the England team to stick to their style of play.

I think it’s one of those things where you live by the sword and you die by it. This is the time for England to come together and Bazball or whatever you call it, if this is how you want to play then you have to back yourselves and not care what other people think. If you think that’s the best chance of beating India then back yourselves,” said Clarke, speaking on ESPN.
