Nasser Hussain, a former leader, believes that amid England’s humiliating 10-wicket loss to India at The Oval yesterday, and no need to worry. The incumbent ODI champions were dismissed for a pitiful 110, which was easily chased down, giving the opposition a 1-0 series advantage.

Despite the comeback of seasoned players like Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes, Jasprit Bumrah’s stunning spell shook the Jos Buttler-led team. The pacer utterly destroyed the hosts with astounding stats of 6/19.

Nasser Hussain commented on Sky Sports that the team will need the patience to adapt to the new white-ball skipper Buttler and coach Matthew Mott’s ideas.

“The time is not at all appropriate to panic. It will take a bit of time for Buttler and Mott to build their club and implant their own beliefs on the side because the management has undergone a total transition. Eoin Morgan is, let us face it, a very hard act to follow.”

‘Root is a world-class player in all formats’: Nasser Hussain

The renowned batting lineup of England failed to get started on a surface with a hint of grass and unfamiliar circumstances. Four batsmen were knocked for a duck after Rohit Sharma ordered England to bat, just saving them from being bowled out for their lowest-ever ODI score.

Nasser Hussain is not at all concerned about the batting unit despite the extraordinary failure. The former captain stated that he was worried about the squad’s depth.

“If two or three players are absent, England’s performance suffers greatly. India has such depth that it can accommodate anyone. England cannot afford to overlook Buttler and Bairstow.”

“I will not be alarmed by your batting order since they will score runs for you. In my judgment, Root is a world-class player in all formats” Husain continued.
