Roger Binny lambasts Ben Stokes for England’s series loss

Roger Binny lambasts Ben Stokes for England’s series loss. India is in pole position to win the fifth Test, having finished Day 2 with a massive first innings lead of 255 runs and two wickets to spare.

Roger Binny, president of the BCCI. Blamed England’s series loss to Rohit Sharma and his team on Ben Stokes’ aggressive captaincy style. The Three Lions are 1-3 down in the series and in serious trouble after India took a massive 255-run first-innings lead with two wickets to spare on Day 2 of the fifth and final Test in Dharamsala.

The former Indian all-rounder believes Stokes and the other English batters have borne the brunt of their decision to attack the experienced Indian spinners in predominantly difficult batting conditions.

“Well, Ben Stokes has been more aggressive under his captaincy. I believe that has been the (reason for their) downfall in the few Test matches. ” Binny, who is in Dharamsala to watch the proceedings, told NDTV Sports.

“Being so aggressive and trying to take on the Indian spinners in difficult situations rather than hanging around and trying to make a big score,” Binny explained.

Rohit Sharma has been very tactful: Roger Binny

Binny, who played 27 Tests and 72 ODIs between 1979 and 1987. Praised Rohit for his tactics and how he planned England’s annihilation in collaboration with his bowlers.

“Rohit Sharma has once again been very tactful. “He knew exactly what he wanted to do, and he got his bowlers to do it,” the 68-year-old explained.

England made a remarkable comeback in the first Test in Hyderabad, winning despite conceding a 190-run first-innings lead. However, they have suffered three consecutive defeats since then. According to Binny, the tourists did not change their strategy and continued to play aggressive cricket. Rohit was extremely patient following the Hyderabad Test, which paid off handsomely for India.

“I do not believe England changed their strategy. They continued their attacking strategy from the first Test match. However, I believe Rohit was more patient because he had the first Test in his pocket at one point and then let it go. “He was patient enough in the next two Tests to win both,” Binny stated.
