We will look at how India went about their business in Australia: England coach Silverwood | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England‘s head coach Chris Silverwood says his group will look to take a cue from India’s recreation plan, which noticed the guests script a surprising, come-from-behind Test collection triumph in Australia earlier this 12 months, once they face their conventional rivals in the upcoming Ashes.
Down 0-1 after being skittled out for 36 in the opener, an damage-ravaged India staged an unbelievable comeback to assert the 4-match collection in their final collection in Australia.
“I think we’ll be very competitive (in the Ashes). We look at the fact that Australia have been very strong over the years and we have to respect them. But we have over the last 6-7 months played the top two teams in the world, learned a hell of a lot.
“We look at India, how do they go about their business. They’ve proven a recreation plan that was profitable over there and so we will be studying from them. There is a robust perception we are able to do one thing very particular,” Silverwood was quoted as saying by ‘Cricbuzz’.
India used no fewer than 20 different players during their four-Test series in difficult, hostile conditions.
England are seeking to reclaim the Ashes for the first time since 2015. Silverwood was speaking after naming his 17-man squad for the series which begins in Brisbane on December 8.
He also said his team has become battle-hardened having played top sides like India in recent times.
“We are battle hardened. We had some success alongside the way in which and we have confirmed we are able to compete with India.
“The important thing for me is our players have seen what the best in the world look like, they’ve played against it, they’ve felt what it is to have them push against us. We’ve also tasted success against them.
“Look at the Headingley Test after we got here again very robust, which reveals that we have now acquired the talents throughout the ranks to take 20 wickets and push the most effective. So I see that as an actual constructive, an actual galvaniser to the group, to raised deal with stress now that they see it an increasing number of, which is nice.”
Silverwood also said that his coaching staff would study how India’s bowlers operated during their series in Australia.
“We watched how India carried out in Australia (final winter) and we tried to study classes from them. What we will be doing is trying again over the plans India used and adapting any of these to what our bowling assault is.
“How do we get the best out of the bowling attack we have got rather than worrying about what we haven’t got. There is nothing we can do about that so it’s pointless. We will be using the skills we have in the best possible way and I do believe that we can make it work.”
