Role of Bazball – Head coach and the captain

Head coach Brendon McCullum
Captain Jos Buttler

Brendon McCullum was appointed as their head coach last year in 2022. So far, his attacking approach in test cricket has done wonders for them. It wasn’t only Bredon but also the appointment of Ben Stokes that introduced the term “Baseball” in cricket.

It is Test Cricket played with the mindset of ODIs and T20s. So far, England has performed pretty well in Test cricket with this approach. But can they do the same in the limited formats of the game? Brendon is an attacking player, which also projects in this coaching. We can surely see England play attacking cricket under his mentorship.

On the other hand, Jos Buttler is their captain in the ODI format. Buttler became the captain after Eoin Morgan stepped down after the successful World Cup campaign in 2019. Since then, Buttler has struggled with the captaincy. He lost the home series against India and drew a series with the Proteas.

But his successful T20 World Cup captaincy in 2022 has won him the favor of fans and the board. He steered the team to play the finale against Pakistan and won the T20 World Cup. He is going to be a key player for sure.

Players that matter

Before we delve into the details, here are some interesting stats regarding the key players.

Jonny Bairstow 46 average in ODIs with an SR  of 104
Jos Buttler 41 Average with SR of 117
Joe Root 50 average with an SR of 86
Dawid Malan 54 average with an SR of 93
Adil Rashid 183 wickets with an economy rate of 5.64
Harry Brook 39 average with an SR of 105
Chris Woakes 160 wickets with an economy of 5.45


So, let’s start with the batting. Bairstow, Buttler, and co will be crucial for the win in the subcontinent conditions.

When we come to Jonny Bairstow, he has been phenomenal for England cricket so far. His quick decisions behind the stumps have earned the English bowlers many wickets. Now couple that with his impressive stats, Bairstow will be an essential batsman.

Of course, Joe Root is one of England’s most essential batters. Without him performing in critical situations, England cannot hope to win a match in any game format. Especially in the batting conditions of India, we can hope to see him in complete form.

We have discussed Buttler in detail, so I do not think there is a need to talk about him now. You can see his stats in the table.

Dawid Malan has been an explosive batsman in the T20 format. His IPL experience has been pretty great too. With an average of 54 and an impressive strike rate, he will be a nightmare for the bowlers. He is in red hot form, and England has to capitalize on this.


England has a pretty solid bowling attack in this world cup. They have bowlers like Archer, Moeen Ali, and Adil Rashid at their disposal. Not to forget all the all-rounders that will play in the team. For now, let’s talk strictly about the bowlers here.

Adil Rashid has proved to be a pretty effective legspinner against these conditions. Although his economy rate is questionable, he has taken a lot of wickets in his ODI career so far. Definitely a strike bowler!

Moeen Ali is getting back in the form as well. We will talk about him later. But it is important to mention that his offspin will help Jos Buttler to control to middle overs a lot.


Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Rehan, and Moeen Ali, England’s team is full of capable all-rounders. Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes are alone enough to deal with the Indian conditions. Jofra has proved to be quite instrumental in the past.

But there is one all-rounder that can prove to be a menace in those conditions: Moeen Ali. Most batters have consistently underestimated him because he is a part-time offspinner. But that has always played in favor of Moeen. On the spinning wickets, Moeen and Rehan will pick up wickets. Now couple this with Moeen’s batting as well. MAGNIFICO!

So far, England’s squad has shown promise. The team is full of all-rounders, bowlers, and batsmen that can win matches for you from crucial moments. Spinners like Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali will be instrumental in the middle overs. They can control runs and pick wickets here and there.

They are the most balanced squad in this tournament. And they will be looking forward to building a solid playing 11 for the matches. They have the right blend of batters, bowlers, and all rounders. It seems like their dream of defending the championship can easily be fulfilled.

Most of the batting department stands on trusted shoulders. We can say that it will be difficult to shake the defending champions off this year.
