Before the next Ashes series, England coach Trevor Bayliss has said the team has been hampered by major problems since the last six or seven years, saying you don’t have to be Einstein to solve it.
“You don’t have to be Einstein to solve it. They have been for the past six or seven years, but that didn’t stop us from winning the ashes four years ago,” Bayliss cited as the International Cricket Council (ICC). saying.
England announced its 14-member squad for the first Ash Test against Australia on Saturday. Jason Roy, Rory Burns and Joe Denly were named on the team and will be the opening options for the team in the next series.
The team defeated Ireland in the only test match for 143 races. England only participated in 85 races in the first inning and managed to score 303 runs in their second inning.
Defending 181 in the second inning, England beat Ireland by 38 (the seventh lowest total in the test cricket), and as a result, the team recorded a comprehensive victory.
Roy, who scored only 5 in the first innings, managed to change his luck, as he played a hit of 72 in the second inning.
The England coach admitted that Roy could take some time to adapt to red-ball cricket.
“Like any debutante, he looked nervous, but scoring 70 points on his first test was a good effort. There was a little more in those wickets than I’m sure he’s used to in white ball cricket in recent years, but races are races. He wouldn’t be the first player to look careless and run away. In fact, that’s a good sign, I think, “Bayliss said.
“We want him to go out and play his natural game, but in red ball cricket, you must be a little more selective. You must make a conscious effort to tell yourself, I will not go for the large unit of rising coverage until I’m really comfortable, the gate is flat or the ball is not doing so much, “he added.
In the 14-member team, fast bowler Jofra Archer received his first test call. The 24-year-old found a place on the team at the back of his impressive performance in England’s successful ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign.
The preparation of the archers for the five-day cricket will be assessed, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced.
Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, both rested for the Single Test against Ireland, also returned to the team. Lewis Gregory and Jack Leach, who were part of the single test, were thrown from the side.
The squad will inform Birmingham on July 29.
England’s 14-man team for the first Ash Test is as follows: Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes (vc), Olly Stone, Chris Woakes.
England and Australia will compete in five Ashes Test matches from August 1 to September 16.
