South Africa captain Dean Elgar has said England’s ‘Bazball’ style is an interesting style of playing Test cricket but feels the aggressive and gritty style of play will not continue to be tested in time.
Ahead of the Test series against England, Elgar said his team is not too concerned about the 4-game winning streak that England are experiencing at home, with all four wins coming on the back of more than 250 running chases.
“New England style is very interesting. But I do not see that there is longevity in brave cricket because I see things in the evening with the passage of time in test cricket. “
“England and New Zealand have often been on par, and had New Zealand taken their chances and got what they did, things could have been very different. England would have come out with eggs on their facesElgar for Wisden Cricket Monthly, according to Dailymail.co.uk.
“You can go south very fast.” – Dean Elgar
Although the “Bazball” style was belittled by the England coach, Brendon McCollumHowever, the UK media uses the term and Elgar doesn’t see it as a major problem.
“I have absolutely no interest in the style they played. I think it could go one of two ways for them and it could go south really fast. [Talking about it] It is a waste of energy. Their own coach doesn’t even like the slogan they came up with. I’d like to see them do it against our tailorsneighbor added.
The first test begins August 17, Wednesday, with WTC points on the line for both teams.
