A new era: Brendon McCullum will try to bring identity & panache to England’s Test side

England’s new Test coach Brendon McCullum’s stocks have risen so much in eight years or so that one assumes he has always been this uber-confident, cool, courageous, swaggering leader. He wasn’t. It’s that personal transformation that offers England fans greater hope of a revival; that here is a man intimate with the vulnerabilities in sportsmen and knows what to do to turn things around. Going by the way he has coached Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, two effects can be expected by the England players: no insecurity and a sense of identity. 🚨 Limited Time Offer | Express Premium with ad-lite for just Rs 2/ day 👉🏽 Click here to subscribe 🚨 Considering the England Test team has lacked both security and identity in recent times – Stuart Broad and James Anderson were agh...

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson relishing extended England series | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is looking forward to seeing his side challenged over a longer campaign as they prepare for a three-Test series in England. The economics of the game mean although New Zealand are the reigning World Test champions, they are rarely involved in anything more than a two-match campaign, even when they are at home as a result of having one of the smaller populations among leading cricket countries. Indeed the last time New Zealand were involved in anything more than a two-Test series was when they suffered a 3-0 defeat in Australia in 2019/20. But last year New Zealand hit the ground running to win a two-match campaign away to England 1-0 before, just over a week later, they defeated India in the inaugural World Test Championship final at Southampt...

MUMBAI: With white Kookaburra, Mohammed Siraj had a nightmare of an IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore but one of India's rising fast bowling stars is hopeful of making amends with the red Dukes during the series-deciding fifth Test against England.
