ENG VS IND: Aakash Chopra has noted that England’s overly aggressive batting strategy in limited-overs cricket might occasionally backfire. In the first ODI, Team India bowled Jos Butter and company out for just 110 runs in just 25.2 overs. The visitors went on to win the match by ten wickets after their bowlers failed to claim a wicket.

“One Is To Respect The Conditions”: Aakash Chopra

ENG VS IND: “Your Clothes Come Off At Times When You Do Goondaism”: Aakash Chopra

“What is this England team? In the last match, wickets are okay to fall one after the other, but once you see the conditions, two things are very important – one is to respect the conditions, and the other is to respect the situation. Your clothes come off at times when you do goondaism. It was not a 110-run pitch, I agree it was not a 300-run pitch, but could you have not reached 225? Do you not have that much batting also?

Chopra noted

The former Indian hitter stated that the hosts should have at least established a competitive total while recognizing that The Oval’s surface was not ideal for batting.

ENG VS IND: Batting Strategy Of England

If Team India wants to adopt a similar strategy in white-ball cricket, Aakash Chopra has issued a warning. He brought out how the T20I series against England saw the Men in Blue lose a lot of early wickets. The shot choices of Buttler, Jason Roy, and Liam Livingstone received specific criticism from Aakash Chopra.

“Some of the shots, what was Liam Livingstone doing, playing while walking, the big shot Jason Roy played. There were some good balls, which you couldn’t have done anything about. I am saying there was a fielder placed in the deep for Buttler; the team had already lost six wickets but shot after shot. I don’t think there is any problem for India. England has a lot to think about; try to become a slightly better team. The sense was slightly missing in the batting.”

Says Aakash Chopra

As a final request, the acclaimed analyst asked England to exercise a little more moderation in the game’s 50-over format.

Buttler doubted how much the England batters could have done to stave off the raiding Indian seamers during the post-game presentation following the first ODI. However, he added that going forward, they would want a backup strategy to deal with such circumstances.
