Debunking Misconceptions: Dinesh Karthik Clarifies England’s Bazball Approach



The India-England five-match Test series has started in Hyderabad, with a focus on Bazball’s success on Indian pitches. Veteran Indian wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik discussed the Bazball theory, emphasizing that it’s about being the best version of oneself rather than just playing aggressively. Bazball emerged following Brendon McCullum’s influence as the Test coach for England, with Ben Stokes as captain, leading to 13 victories in 18 Tests since their partnership began. Karthik believes that England’s Bazball approach will challenge India, especially in terms of mental resilience. Both teams are facing challenges with star batsmen Virat Kohli and Harry Brook missing from the initial matches.
