Notably, England National Cricket Team have been playing and promoting the fearless brand of cricket in Tests ever since Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum took over as captain and head coach.

They have adopted a new ‘Bazball’ approach, which points to playing an aggressive and entertaining brand of Test cricket. The aggressive approach has been highly beneficial for Ben Stokes & Co. as they have won Tests against New Zealand, India, South Africa and Pakistan.

Rahul Dravid further said that adaptability is still going to be the most important thing in Test cricket and opined that the teams that can adapt to different conditions are going to be very successful.

He elaborated: “I still think adaptability is going to be very important in Test cricket that ability to play aggressively when you need to play aggressively or you can play aggressively with the kind of squad you have or the position you find yourself in the game. And then the opportunity to be able to play at a difficult period or a difficult day of test cricket either with the bat or the ball and knuckle down and play some tough and hard cricket as well.

“So I think that the teams that have that adaptability and the teams that have that ability to be able to switch, so to speak, even in between a Test match are the ones that are going to be very successful.”
