Michael Vaughan encourage England players to follow Kohli’s training regimen. “This relaxed, carefree attitude of the Bazballers has been great but it should not roll into white-ball games,” Vaughan added.
Ex-cricketers have criticized England’s poor performance in the ICC World Cup 2023. After their untimely exit headed by Jos Buttler, former captain Michael Vaughan urged the team to adopt Virat Kohli’s training program. The reigning champions’ early elimination capped off a dismal season, prompting Vaughan’s advise in the face of the wrath.
With only three victories out of nine matches, the 2019 champions finished seventh in the points standings. While ‘Bazball’—an aggressive style—may succeed in Tests, Vaughan emphasized that England’s ODI side must prioritize fitness. He emphasized the need of players focusing on physical conditioning for the limited-overs format.
“The Bazballers’ relaxed, carefree attitude has been fantastic, but it should not be carried over into white-ball games.” Running between wickets and in the outfield requires fitness in white-ball cricket. Consider Virat Kohli. He spends four hours racing about in the field before going to bat for three to four hours and masterminding the chase. That is fitness,” Vaughan wrote in a column for The Telegraph.
“English cricket must set standards, and fitness is critical for discipline.” It demonstrates discipline in life to be healthy and take care of yourself by going to the gym, hammering the treadmill, and putting in your kilometers. Cricket is a fast-paced sport. “I hope Key and the team behind the scenes are keeping that in mind and not reverting to old habits,” he continued.
Jos Buttler blames himself for England’s poor performance at the World Cup 2023.
Following England’s elimination from the ICC World Cup 2023, Captain Jos Buttler cited his individual form as a key role in the team’s demise. Despite being a key role in white-ball cricket, Buttler failed to score a half-century in nine games. England’s struggles continued as they only reached 200-plus totals four times, resulting in defeats in all but their last two games.
“My own form has been my biggest concern,” Buttler remarked at the post-match presentation ceremony. I felt really well going into the competition. So it’s sad that I didn’t do as well as I could in such an important capacity. “My own bat performance has hurt us,” Buttler said.
