New Zealand defeats England, Joe Root backs youngster

England has lost its first home test series since 2014. This time it was team New Zealand that defeated it. It was a painful defeat as England lost the four-match test series held in March in India by 3-1. England came hoping to win the test series, but the planning didn’t work out for England to its misfortune. Joe root, captain of the England Cricket Team, backed his misled youngster batters and advised them not to panic.

It was indeed a shameful loss for England as New Zealand finished it in just 11 overs on the fourth day of the test in Edgbaston. Even the under-strength side was embarrassed. Zack Crawley and Ollie Pope failed to live up to the expectation, while James Bracey made four ducks in six innings between them. Joe Root admits that it was a tough time for the players, and everybody underperformed.

The main reason Joe Root is advising the players not to panic is the upcoming five-Test Series with India and Australia in August and December. He wants his team to be mentally fit because they cannot think of losing another one. Mental depression and fatigue might cause ineffectiveness in the performance, which highly not recommended.

LONDON, ENGLAND – JUNE 06: Dom Sibley of England defends during Day 5 of the First LV= Insurance Test Match between England and New Zealand at Lord’s Cricket Ground on June 06, 2021 in London, England.

Talking about the analytical side, it is observed that the team hasn’t performed well in all three areas, i.e., batting, bowling, and fielding. Therefore, and especially in the batting region, the team has to practice some suitable hard lessons. Joe Root said, “We shouldn’t shy away from that, shouldn’t be scared of that, front up to it and come back a better team for it.”

One more factor for the defeat was the playing eleven squad. The team played without Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, and also Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer rested due to injury. Thus this heavily affected the batting line-up leading up to the defeat. However, root hopes that he will be ready with the whole squad for the upcoming test series with India.
