Odiha News: Chris Silverwood, the England coach, is disappointed with the team’s recent performance. The 4 match test series between England and India has been concluded, and India has emerged as the winner. India has won the series 3-1 despite losing the first match in Chennai. After the first test, many cricket pundits predicted that it wouldn’t be a cakewalk for the Indian cricket team, and England will give them a tough time.
But in the last 3 test matches, India won the matches comprehensively. Indian spinner Axar Patel and Ashwin shared 59 wickets between them which were the main reason for the Indian team to win the series. With the series win India has also qualified for the test championship final at Lords against New Zealand.
In a virtual press conference, England coach Chris Silverwood said England failed to capitalize after the first test match. He congratulated the Indian cricket team and said Indian spinners done an excellent job for their team. He also added that the pictures of this series of defeat would hurt us for a long time.
Many former England cricketers have criticized home condition. However, India lost the first Test but made a comeback.
Chris Silverwood career
Chris Silverwood, according to former England bowling coach Bob Cottam, is faster than Alan Donald. However, despite his speed and a sharp bouncer, the Yorkshire bowler was not consistent enough to reach the heights that such a comparison deserved.
Nonetheless, he was an excellent bowler for Yorkshire, where he hurled his fare and moved them away late alongside Darren Gough, Ryan Sidebottom, Matthew Hoggard, and Steve Kirby. He was often unplayable on Headingley green-tops.
Needless to say, neither of his Tests have been played in England, where his bowling was a definite asset. He was called to play a Test in Zimbabwe, and he performed admirably in Bulawayo, taking three wickets in the first innings. That was the “we bloomin’ murdered them” Test, in which England drew level with the scores with four wickets in hand but failed to get the elusive run. When Nick Knight was run out attempting the third run off the final delivery, Silverwood was padded up.
He had another chance to represent England three years later. He showed great strength in collecting 5 wickets for 401 in Cape Town after impressive shows in Port Elizabeth and Durban, South Africa.
However, he was taken to the cleaners in the seven overs he bowled in Centurion in the controversial match where Hansie Cronje and Nasser Hussain forfeited an innings to make have a result of the match. He and his Yorkshire partner Gough tossed about the last few runs in the final instants of the game, but that didn’t prevent England from banning it into the county’s pastures.
