Cricket news - Got the selection wrong on this occasion: Root
Joe Root has criticized his team's batting after a 381-run shellacking for West Indies in the first Test in Bridgetown. But the England captain insists the players have to turn it in to the series.
It wasn't the worst start for the tourists, who were full of beans come in the series after the success in India and the way to Sri Lanka. Root was not appreciated at pains to stress England, your hosts, in eighth place in the ICC Test rankings, but they looked underprepared in a number of areas, particularly with the bat.
Fired a 77 in the first innings by a high level of class, pace bowler of Kemar Roach, took five for 17, you were inexplicably reversed, by rejected the off-spin of Roston Chase in the second, and 246. The batting all-rounder came into this fixture with only one previous five-wicket haul and a bowling average of 47 against England, played to a generous shots to the hand, the he is him figures of eight for 60, certainly never better. For comparison, Shane Warne's career-best return of eight for 71 is achieved, also against England.
Root, who played a poor shot when dabbing Chase straight to first slip for 22, was frustrated with how easy the team has a 1: 0 lead in the three-match series.
"There were a couple of very soft dismissals," said root. "In the first innings, there was a bit of bad luck, and the West Indies bowled extremely well, but it was not to offer a huge amount for the West Indies today. It was disappointing to see that some of the redundancies.
"It is hard to take, but only because we had three bad days of cricket and a really bad hour, which was the Test swung dramatically - it does not mean that we can't win here. We are desperate to get it directly into Antigua."
These feelings were echoed by his coach, Trevor Bayliss, who is slandered, is the lack of spiritual power to stem the tide, in two innings. "You don't have to be a perfect technique to score or take wickets in this game," said Bayliss. "It's how you use it."
Master also confessed error, were not to be taken made,, Stuart Broad, and the decision to go for two spinners. Even with Chase glut of wickets, the pitch for the quicks was shown when Shannon Gabriel worked on the England captain with a barrage of short bowling on day four. He may have had his wicket, to gloves, to the holder at first slip, he transgressed, and at the front by a half a foot.
Sam Curran took the new ball with James Anderson, but his left arm swing produced just one wicket for 123 runs from 29 overs in the game. A Ali or Ahmed Rashid made the way it should have.
"I hold my hands up - maybe I understood something wrong on this occasion," assigned to the Root at the end of the game. "It was a very difficult decision to make, and easy to learn, apart from how we have played. The guys who didn't perform went. We made bold calls in Sri Lanka, and we are reaping the rewards. It is very easy to miss, and make rash decisions. We just have to take it on the chin, in the way we play, but also the pitch, try to read it a bit better."
England now travel to Antigua for the second Test. While he is considered to be a pitch, you take it, that may change, given that the West Indies hold the advantage. In previous series, such as 2009, a 1: 0 lead was consolidated with a flat-screen areas for the other devices to finish the hosts and a win. To expect a further selection of dilemmas. Even so, Root has called on his side to dust themselves and come for the fight.
"There are some guys, that hurts. It is about picking us very quickly. We have to learn very quickly.
"It doesn't make us a bad night. We already have some very good things this winter. The has to stay with us and the belief and fight, we showed in the field. It will show a strength of character, to come back to."
