Speaking at the post-match press conference, Stokes claims Bazball means to ‘get better as a team and players’. He cites Root, Hartley, Crawley’s performances to point out the positives for the side from the tour. Stokes also explains Anderson’s subdued celebration on picking up his 700th Test wicket.
