In a revealing statement, England’s batting stalwart Joe Root shed light on the unconventional approach adopted by the team under Ben Stokes’ leadership. Root disclosed that team meetings are a thing of the past for the English squad, emphasizing instead on organic discussions and camaraderie to bring out the best in players.

Root, despite his struggles in the ongoing Test series against India, expressed his wholehearted endorsement of England’s aggressive playing style in the longest format. As the five-match series stands at 1-1, England bounced back impressively in the second Test, showcasing their adherence to the ‘Bazball’ ethos.

We’ve moved away from traditional team meetings. What’s remarkable is the genuine camaraderie we foster away from the pitch. Whether it’s over dinner or a morning coffee, those informal conversations are where true learning happens,

remarked Root in an interview with ‘Jio Cinema‘ prior to the match.

Despite finding themselves trailing by 190 runs in Hyderabad, England staged a remarkable comeback. Root reiterated the team’s commitment to their style of play, regardless of the match outcome, citing past instances where they defied odds to clinch victories.

Reflecting on Ollie Pope’s stellar performance in the opening Test, Root lauded his team-mate’s resilience in adverse conditions. Looking ahead, Root expressed optimism about England’s ability to adapt and maintain composure in challenging environments, while remaining poised to seize opportunities to apply pressure and launch strategic attacks.
