- Venue – Edgbaston – Birmingham
- Time & Date – 3:00 PM Indian standard Time / 1st July till 5th July
In Test cricket history, England has become the first team, to magnificently chase 3 consecutive targets, greater than 250 runs. This new style of aggressive playing is due to change in their game by their head coach Brendon McCullum and their captain Ben Stokes.
McCullum believes that Stokes is more aggressive than him. Speaking to Sky Sports, McCullum was quoted as saying:
“I’m aggressive, but I think he (Stokes) might have me covered to be honest. He came in even last night (Sunday) and we’d been set 296, with 40 overs left, and he was like ‘we’ll just knock them off tonight — extra half hour as well, it’s only seven an over!’
Ben Stokes says that England's recovery from 55 for 6 to win at Headingley was the most satisfying moment yet in his short reign as captain
