In the first Ashes Test series played between England and Australia, England faced defeat at the hands of Australia. After the defeat in this match, former England batsman Ian Bell has come to the rescue of the English team. According to Ian Bell, the Australian team looked scared on the first two days of the Test match. he/she also said that the Pat Cummins-led team still needs a lot of work to do. In the first Test, Australian captain Pat Cummins scored 44 not out and shared a match-winning 55-run ninth-wicket partnership with Nathan Lyon (16 not out) to guide Australia to a thrilling victory.

what did ian bell say

Ian Bell went on to say that Australia have a lot more work to do. After the first two days at Edgbaston, he/she was surprised to find how inactive Australia was. It was as if England actually used to play an Ashes series in the olden days. Australia looked scared. he/she further said that Australia only seemed to match England’s aggression when Alex Carey was batting in the first innings. he/she added that “It was also interesting how nervous Steve Smith was. Why didn’t he/she launch himself at Harry Brook? Why did he/she barely play a stroke when angry?”

England in search of victory

Ian Bell has backed Ben Stokes to lead England to a further series win. The hosts will now be aiming to bounce back from being 1-0 down in the second Test starting June 28 at Lord’s. he/she said that I would not be surprised at all to see Ben Stokes. The team comes back from behind and wins the series. It has happened once or twice when teams have come from behind in a home Ashes series and won it. The English team is looking for a comeback in this series being played between England and Australia. Team captain Ben Stokes also said after the defeat in the first match that his/her team will continue to play in the same manner.
