The test cricket match of England vs. South Africa in Centurion

England didn’t win a series of tests in 2019, except for the one-time match against Ireland in July. For the first time since 1999, English has traveled a calendar year without winning a series of tests.

Joe Root men lost to West Indies 2-1, drew Ashes 2-2 and lost to New Zealand 1-0. Thanks to Steve Smith, England did not keep Ashes at home for the first time in 18 years. Their current South Africa tour has started poorly, losing their First Test in Centurion after 107 runs.

There is a good balance between tightening and changing and players think this may be their only chance. It was a poor environment when the players were looking over their shoulders.

The UK has been experimenting with countless opening batsmen since Andrew Strauss’s career, which ended in 2012. Alastair Cook’s retirement last year, gave the team two vacant positions at the top of the order.

Rory Burns has impressed in the Ashes, scoring an outdated first century at Edgbaston. However, the median score of the trivial test is 33.75 highlighting his inconsistencies.

With the exception of Stokes, English batsmen have struggled for the past twelve months, all averaging under 40 in Test cricket.

After losing to South Africa on Sunday, former England captain Nasser Hussain tortured his team, poor tactics and lack of discipline with sticks and balls.

If an England team can win when it does nothing and they can win when it does something, you have nowhere else to go. This is not Melbourne on a drop field without doing anything, this is not a Kookaburra ball in Australia without doing anything. This is a yard suitable for England.

England will drop below Australia on the ICC Test rankings in the next few weeks – if Australia wins their New Year test then that’s almost certain.

The World Championship final takes place on English soil; at Lord Trick in June 2021. Currently sitting in sixth position on the ladder, England have few chances to play in the highly anticipated match.
