Following the ODI series loss, Team India will face Bangladesh in the two-match Test series. The first match will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chaudhary Stadium in Chattogram on December 14, while the second match will be played in Dhaka on December 22. India’s stand-in Test captain KL Rahul said he has enjoyed watching England play an aggressive brand of Test cricket.

England have adopted a more positive and aggressive style of play known as “Bazball” since Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum took over as England captain and head coach, respectively, in 2022. The English team have remained unbeaten at home, defeating New Zealand, India, and South Africa before winning the series in Pakistan with one match remaining to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

I Really Enjoy Watching Test Cricket Being Played Like That – KL Rahul

Speaking to the press ahead of the Test series in Bangladesh, the 30-year-old said that he was following the historic Test series between England and Pakistan and described the match as very exciting. Rahul said it’s good to see England backing their players and finding success.

“To watch, it’s really, really exciting. I have been watching these two games. It’s really exciting. I really enjoy watching Test cricket being played like that. Very fearless, very aggressive, taking the game on. It’s how you view it. For me as a cricketer, it’s not reckless. They have a certain mindset and they’ve thought about it. Their players are doing the job for their team. When you’re doing that it doesn’t really matter how you’ve done it,” Rahul told reporters in Chattogram.

“That’s worked for them. Each team has their own way. Obviously all teams can learn a thing or two from teams that are doing well and how they’ve really performed. It’s not always going to be the same approach. You turn up and (play) according to the conditions and where you are. One thing is sure, you’ll see aggressive cricket from our side.”
