England’s Way Of Cricket.

This page is going to focus on the heaviest defeats based on Englands form in recent cricket. Also this page will compare the difference between the new England test captain (Alastair Cook) and the retired test opener and captain (2009-2012) Andrew Strauss and the results of the matches; the bowlers and batsmens performances and efforts in series that are poor according to Alastair Cook.

To start things off for this page, I wanted to discuss manners of South Africa’s tour of England in the summer of 2012. This was Andrew Strauss’s last test series as captain because of such contraversy with Kevin Pietersen and his place he takes in England’s test line up.

One really disappointing test match for England was the first test against South Africa just in the 2012 season of England cricket. England batted first and made a reasonable 385 at The Oval. Alastair Cook played well scoring 115 off 295 balls with a slow strike rate of just 39. Trott also scored a good 71 off 162 balls with a strike rate of 44. The rest of the England line up just made 199 runs for just 8 wickets. This shows how well the South Africans bowled to England. England responded back extremely well with Anderson getting Alviro Petersen lbw at for a duck off 8 balls. South Africa were in trouble at 1-1 coming into the 3rd over. Suprisingly the next South African wicket to fall was Graeme Smith for 131 off 273 balls who succumbed to Bresnan at 260-2 off 87 overs. England let the South Africans roll again into another excellent batting performance as Hashim Amla made 311* and Jacques Kallis made 182. South Africa destroyed England with a total of 637-2 off 189 overs with a run rate of 3.37 throughout the whole innings. The best England bowler was James Anderson who bowled 41 overs and took 1 wicket for 116 runs. South Africa responded well with bowling England out for 240 with superb stuff from Dale Steyn who took 5-56 off 21 overs at 2.66 an over. This was one of England’s worst tests under the captaincy of Andrew Strauss. The pressure of this test led to Strauss’s retirement in all formats of cricket.
