Brendon McCullum, the head coach of the England Test squad, responded straightforwardly to a headline that said Pakistan wouldn’t accept England’s aggressive style of play in the longest format, known as “Bazball.” England created an aggressive style of Test cricket under the new leadership team of McCullum and Ben Stokes, defeating New Zealand 3-0 in the home series before defeating India in the postponed fifth Test at Edgbaston.

Although England won the three-match home series against South Africa in August by a score of 2-1, the tour of Pakistan will be the team’s first away assignment under the McCullum-Stokes leadership. The former captain of New Zealand predicted that England will maintain their optimistic attitude throughout the series against Pakistan.

“We will investigate!” When former England captain Michael Atherton mentioned an article that said “Baseball won’t work in Pakistan,” McCullum responded in an interview with Sky Sports Cricket.

“We want to play in a good manner. We believe we have a responsibility to make sure we amuse viewers on television and people who want to see Test cricket. We have to keep their attention. We want to play in the manner in which the captain has led the team.”

Given the differing circumstances in Pakistan, McCullum acknowledged that there would be some adjustments, but insisted that England will enter the field with a positive outlook.

“There may be certain nuances and intricacies, but fundamentally it stays the same. Keep an optimistic attitude while the game is on the line. Use your judgment. You are defeated if you are. Be upbeat and aggressive; if Pakistan is capable of defeating us at that time, shake hands and go on. You have a grin on your face and understand that you need to improve. But at least you showed up to play the game you wanted to play, and that makes you happy,” the head coach stated.
