The 24-year-old England National Cricket Team star batsman Harry Brook has said that the main aim of his team is not winning the Test matches, instead it is to entertain cricket fans.

England National Cricket Team have been playing Test cricket with the Bazball approach since the appointment of Brendon McCullum as head coach and Ben Stokes as skipper. Bazball is a term that points to the aggressive and entertaining brand of cricket that England are playing in Test cricket.

Speaking ahead of the Ashes finale, Harry Brook said that they are trying to bring Test cricket alive by playing an entertaining brand of cricket and their focus is not on winning.

“We’re not focused on winning as a side, we’re focused on making people enjoy watching and bringing Test cricket alive again. I think we’ve done a decent job of that in the last 12 months and it’s been exciting to watch. It’s definitely been exciting to play in,” he said.

Meanwhile, Harry Brook has said that they will be looking to earn a moral victory in the fifth Test to level the series 2-2 and avoid defeat.

“We haven’t lost yet, they’ve only retained it. There is another Test match to be won,” said England batter Harry Brook.

“It’s a shame the weather ruined it for us because we’d have felt very confident going into this game at 2-2. We were dominating the game last week, so if the game had played out, I would like to think we would have won. If we can win this week, yeah, it almost can make it a moral victory,” he added.

The Ashes finale is set to be hosted by The Kennington Oval in London from July 27 to 31.
