England vs India

Ben Stokes is the new evolutionary captain of England. He brought some wanting changes as well as fair amount of luck. Baz has influenced his attitude mostly, now Stokes has named another person who helped him to evolve as a leader. He led England to a 3-0 series win over New Zealand last month. It was his first series after Joe Root stepped down as Test captain. Now, Stokes on Tuesday oversaw the completion of a thrilling win over Indin, which saw the series, beginning in last summer ending 2-2.

Stokes’ appointment, which coincided with the appointment of Brendon McCullum as Test head coach, was followed by England winning just one of their last 17 matches.

Morgan, who resigned from his position as both ODI and T20 captain last month, was appointed under similar circumstances in 2014, leading England to 50-over World Cup glory in 2019. Before leaving, also guided the T20 team in 2016. World Cup Final.

Asked whether there are echoes in his vision of England’s change in limited-overs under Morgan, Ben Stokes told Sky Sports: “Definitely. Baz (McCullum) and Eoin are really, really good partners.

“I’ve spent a lot of time under Eoin’s captaincy and I’ve taken his message and how he wants the team to grow in one-day cricket and I’ve brought his mindset and his ethos around cricket in this Test environment.

“It’s not just me and Baz, you’ve got to get that feedback from everyone and everyone just got involved, and it’s been a good five weeks.”

England’s new aggressive approach has worked wonder, it is more of a mental approch rather than transformation in playing style. Under Stokes and McCullum, England has registered remarkable number of wins that saw them chase down fourth-innings targets of 277, 299, 296 and 378.

Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow Confidently Turns The Match In England’s Favor

Stokes believed England’s new style was instilling fear among opponents, and that was evident as India stumbled after taking a 132-run first innings lead.

“I said yesterday after we finished the day’s play, you look at how teams will be viewing us at the moment,” Ben Stokes said.

“That third innings now has become a fourth innings because they’re going to have to concentrate on how we’re going to play, and they’re worried about that.

“So to be in a position like that as a team, of being feared before they’ve even finished their innings, is an unbelievable place to be in. Teams don’t know how to play the third innings, especially when they’ve got a lead.”
