- South Africa beat England in the first test
- Africa won by an innings and 12 runs at Lord’s Test
ENG vs SA Test Bazball: Ever since former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum became the coach of the England team, the word ‘Bazball’ has been associated with the English team. It is also discussed a lot. The name ‘Bazball’ is associated with England’s aggressive innings in Test cricket. On the basis of this, England has also defeated some teams including India and New Zealand.
But now South Africa has thrown out the air of this ‘Bazball’. Actually, the South Africa team is on a tour of England these days. A three-match Test series is being played between the two teams here. In the first Test of the series, South Africa defeated the English team by an innings and 12 runs in three days.
Wasim Jaffer had fun like this
Since this defeat, the England team has to be trolled due to ‘Bazball’. In this episode, former Team India cricketer Wasim Jaffer has also made fun of this ‘Bazball’. By the way, Jaffer has always been an attacker regarding the England team, especially former English captain Michael Vaughan. This time too he has trolled the England team fiercely after a crushing defeat.
Wasim Jaffer made a tweet. In this, a joke is made on the defeat of England with ‘Bazball’. Jaffer wrote in the post- “Bazball has done wonders in the fourth innings”, SA (South Africa): There will be no fourth innings. That is, Jaffer is trying to say that this time South Africa has thrown out the wind of Bazball showing amazing in the fourth innings.
“Bazball has done wonders in the fourth inns”

What is Bazzball after all?
Let us tell you that Bazball has come into the limelight since the arrival of Brendon McCullum, the Test coach of the England cricket team. The England team, led by McCullum, is playing aggressive cricket, similar to what has been seen in the last four Test matches. Where England defeated New Zealand in three consecutive Tests and then defeated Team India at Edgbaston.
Recently, the England team had chased a target of more than 250 runs in the fourth innings against New Zealand in three consecutive Tests. After this, in the Edgbaston Test against Team India, the English team chased a target of 378 runs, showing an aggressive game. But this time in the fourth innings against South Africa, one of the English team did not play.
England could not even score 200 runs in both the innings
Actually, in the Lord’s Test against South Africa, the England team lost the toss and went to the field for batting first. After this, this host team was reduced to 165 runs in the first innings. After this, the African team scored 326 runs in the first innings and took a lead of 161 runs. But in response, the England team was bundled out for 149 runs in the second innings and lost the match by an innings and 12 runs.
