According to Cummins, “Bazball” is highly wicket dependent

Following the game in Perth, the Test captain of Australia has been watching the Rawalpindi run-fest in his hotel room, which has brought back memories of Australia’s visit there this year.

The players won’t allow England’s attacking strategy and probable Ashes ramifications to consume their thoughts until after next year’s tour of India because “Bazball” is taking up most of the TV time in Australia’s team hotel rooms.

With a blistering 657 from 101 overs in their first innings against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, England has once again grabbed the attention of cricket fans across the world.

England hammered 95 boundaries in what turned out to be the first innings with the highest run rate in 145 years of Test cricket. Three players each reached a century at a rate of less than one run per ball.

With a no-fear attitude to Test cricket, England, known as “Bazball” after coach Brendon McCullum, first caught people’s attention during their home summer. They quickly chased down targets. After Australia humiliated their arch-rivals 4-0 at home last summer, that fact alone makes for a tantalizing Ashes series in England the following year.

After playing in his own side’s Test match against the West Indies, Australia’s captain Pat Cummins stated that he had watched England’s first innings with interest while back at the team hotel.

Cummins’ statement

‘I enjoyed watching it,’ Cummins said. When Pakistan made 4-476 against Australia in March, I was bowling on the Rawalpindi wicket, and it brought back memories of that, Cummins recalled. “I felt a little worse for it at the time.’

“They did something amazing. Wow, they did great. It depends greatly, in my opinion, on the wicket. Before Pakistan’s second day of play ended with a 181-run stand between Imam-ul-Haq and opener Abdullah Shafique (89 not out), Cummins said, “That pitch is genuinely unlike anything else in the world.”
