Cricket news - England lack mental discipline: Bayliss
It is now already some of the swing. After whitewashing Sri Lanka before Christmas, the feeling of the series in the Caribbean was that the England team can finally crack in Test cricket after five years of consistent inconsistency. But now, after their 381-run defeat in Barbados, the same old questions about the team, the quality and the toughness, reared their ugly heads.
Such chastening low not few and far between for this group of players, despite their recent victories over India and Sri Lanka. were Much too regularly, England seem to collapse in a heap when the going gets tough. There are times were, of course, if you think, Edgbaston against India as an example -, but soon enough, a misfortune comes like the one observed over the last four days at the Kensington Oval.
The reasons for this is difficult to know. England, in third place in the world, are a good Test team. They have very talented players, the self-as hard as any other team in the world. You can do and produce fine long-form cricket. So, what goes wrong, if, as in Auckland against new Zealand in the past year, as they were rolled for 58, England end up with egg on your face?
Most relevant, perhaps, is the observation after the game by head coach Trevor Bayliss was to exacerbate that his team need to in difficult times. "I think it will. up a bit of courage and determination through these difficult times," he said "It is not the first time that we collected in a short period of time. The boys are hurting in the locker room, and I would not be worried if you were.
"Do you lack of mental discipline? Personally, I think so. You don't have to lead to the perfect technique to be able to score or take wickets: it is how you go about using it. On this occasion, we have a lack in this Department. I'm not sure I can repeat what has been said [in the cloakroom].
"They did bowl well, but every time a team does that, we should not expect that it will be overturned, at 77. In the second innings, which saw the boys as they tried, we made a good start, but at this level, you need to be able to bat more than that."
England's first innings was shocking enough, but at least the West-Indian destroyers were the four fast-bowlers. In the tourists " second dig, it was the off-spin of Roston Chase, Test bowling average of runs before this game in the mid-40s, lost the damage as England six wickets for 31, after Rory Burns had you start with a solid enough, his highest test score. As bad as the first innings, rolled out of Chase was hardly better.
"Chase bowled a good line and good length," Bayliss said. "He has given us not just runs, climbing to strike. He built that the pressure broke our techniques on a number of occasions and there were some bad shots on some occasions. Adds up to eight wickets.
"It is not the first time that's happened. Every time we lose a wicket it is the beginning of a collapse. And to be honest, I like I don't know to explain. There is nothing in the preparation or in the lead up to the game that is different, if we win. We need to find out what the difference between is, when we are on a partnership after the loss of a wicket and lose eight or nine short questions."
Probably the only positive from this game, the performance of burns, 84 in the second innings, while composed and solid against a hostile West Indian bowling attack. was The Surrey captain sees the game at the highest level, but his opening partner Keaton Jennings, is to fight. "Burns has said, shown, enough," Bayliss. "He looks like he's been here for 20 or 30 Tests, not four. He is still learning and even better.
"Keaton is a little bit of fighting. I'd be lying if I said that we are concerned, and I'd be lying if I said that he had not thought about it. He is one of the hardest workers we have and he will leave no stone unturned to make it better."
While self-satisfaction may reasonably be excluded - it is simply an indictment and can not be on everything that has been seen in the way the team trained, - it is fair to ask whether England is in preparation gave them the best chance of performing in Barbados. She had only four days of match practice before the first Test and refused a request from Cricket, the West Indian Islands make it a first-class game, for two days, not first-class matches.
It is the same preparation had England in Sri Lanka, where they won, but Bayliss admits it is hard to get the balancing act right, to give the tight schedule and the desire of all squad members, some time of preparation. "We prepare the same way, as we he said it in Sri Lanka",.
"Two two-day games. But we know what we are doing in Sri Lanka. Here we were a little unsure. We expect that it is not so dry and go with four seamers and a spinner. Personally, I would like to play some first class games to give before the series, but they have only scheduled four days, and if you want to go to any, it is difficult. It is the way of the world these days."
England is the choice of accommodation in Bridgetown has also been called into question, and captain Joe Root admitted after the match that they have made a mistake in picking Sam Curran, who had a bad game, Stuart Broad, although the root is not pointed out, rightly, that the selection be the cause of England, rolled to a 77. "We have made a decision in the belief that the five guys that we would be selected to do the bowl as well as possible," said Bayliss. "Unfortunately, on this occasion you have not.
"When we saw the wicket we were, with two rotors. Unfortunately, we did not bat well enough in the first innings, by the fourth or fifth day, where the two spinners. And I think you would be disappointed [in their performance]. Chase rolled very few short balls, but we let way you with easy singles, so you are not able to put pressure on the batsman.
"It was down to Curran and Wide [for the last seamer]. Our gut feeling was that Curran, as he has done well for us over the last six or seven games. It didn't work like that, the young guy had his first bad Test in his career. It will not be his last, but he's a good young player to learn from it.
"One of the advantages of playing someone like Stuart is that he runs too long, hopefully taking some wickets, but it gives us the control. The Stand in this match, only with [James] Anderson and [Ben] Stokes worries that the line-length bowling and a little bit of pressure on the opposition. We'll have to rethink that in the next match."
