England’s defeat against New Zealand has been described as “unbearable” by one former player.

Home fans were then said to have plummeted to defeat in Birmingham and laughing on the British side as the first home series defeat since 2014.

Next week’s World Test Championship Final between New Zealand and India, despite the game being held in Southampton, did not appreciate much of the mention in much of the English analysis.

BBC cricket correspondent and former English bowler Jonathan Agnew described New Zealand as “disciplined, energetic and confident.”

He said the loss of England’s undefeated home run made it “one of the worst results I’ve seen in a long time.”

“It’s unbearable to hit the bat first and then almost lose in the innings to beat the toss on that pitch,” Agnew wrote.

“England had no energy, which I saw when I was given the opportunity to run chase in the first test drawn in Rose.

“It’s no coincidence that they performed such a performance at Edgbaston after the last day of the series opener, Tradge, because they are now negative, timid and defensive.”

Agnew also attacked England’s policy of not choosing the aspect of full strength.

Guardian Ali Martin writes about “Unfortunately the Guff when the last ticket gate of England’s batting performance falls.”

“Trent Boult zippered the first ball of the day across the Olly Stone, kissed the edge of a shy bat, and thousands of seated people were instinctively more angry than miserable. I chose to laugh. If I don’t laugh, I cry. “

In the same treatise, Andy Bull said New Zealand’s previous series clinch victory in the 1999 Oval saw Captain Nasser Hussein being abused by the crowd.

Abuse included lines such as “garbage pile” and “we are shit and we know we are”.

Bull writes: “I felt a little more forgiving this time, not because England was better, but because it wasn’t, because the opposition was better.

“As a result of 1999, England fell to the bottom of the world rankings, this time pushing New Zealand to the top.”

“I found England in a difficult position to be the third best team in my country,” Bull said in connection with the World Finals.

“They have just been beaten by the team that lost captain and star batter Kane Williamson, wicket-keeper BJ Watling, and senior bowler Tim Southee.

“In essence, they lose to the second XI in a country with only a quarter of the professional players, and run on about one-eighth the sales of England and Wales cricket boards.

“They aren’t the only ones who can benefit from studying how to do it in New Zealand.

“Post-match (Tom) Latham keeps New Zealand’s approach” simple “,” always puts the team first and tries to do what he can, “and” tries to go out and play the brand. I summarized it.Of the cricket we are proud of as kiwi

“Everything can be refreshing and easy. Play straight, play slow, understand who you are and what you’re trying to do, and worry about the game in front of you.

“By comparison, British cricket seems too complicated.”
