We Became More Shy As The Series Progressed


Brendon McCullum’s frank Statement About ‘Exposed’ England

Following the conclusion of the fifth and final Test match between England and India in Dharamshala, head coach Brendon McCullum stated that the visitors had become more “timid” as the series progressed.

England head coach Brendon McCullum remarked that the visitors were becoming more “timid” as the series progressed following the conclusion of the fifth and final Test match against India in Dharamshala. As Rohit Sharma’s India placed a lot of pressure on the visitors towards the end of the series, McCullum told the media that they lost confidence. “We really became more cautious as the series progressed, and that was due to the pressure the Indian lineup put on us—not just when it came to the ball. They really put us under strain with the bat, too,” McCullum was quoted by news sources as saying.

During the five-match Test series against the Indian team, the head coach continued, “they were exposed.”

It’s possible to get away with things sometimes. But it does take some pretty serious reflection and some adjusting to make sure we’re keeping true to what we believe in, especially when you’re exposed the way we have been toward the close of this series,” he continued.

The former batter for New Zealand acknowledged that, following their defeat to India in the Test series, England has to improve in a few areas.

Certain situations allow you to cover a few gaps with a little bit of good fortune on your side. After being exposed to the manner we have been here, you realize that you need to improve in a few areas. We’ll be working that out over the following few months to make sure that by summertime, we’ve improved from where we are right now,” he continued.

After winning by a small margin in Hyderabad, England lost their next four games in the series, failing to build on their early 1-0 lead. India prevailed on both occasions despite the visitors having their opportunities, particularly in Rajkot and Ranchi.

In the five-match Test series, India defeated England 4-1. By defeating the English team by an innings and 64 runs in the fifth and final game, the hosts completed a spectacular victory.
