England’s Test team not yet complete, according to coach McCullum

England’s men’s Test team is far from being a “finished product”, their new head coach Brendon McCullum has said, adding that they aim to make winning in the longest format a habit in all conditions.

Under McCullum’s leadership, England registered three of the three Test victories against New Zealand and the most run chases in their history to beat. India In the recently rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston.

But McCullum says it’s only been a month that his team has started producing results and more needs to be done to make it an all-conquering unit in all conditions.

“We’re not the first to have a finished product,” McCullum told SENZ Breakfast on Tuesday. “We’re a month into it and we’ve had some great results and we’ve seen the cricketing world take a little notice of them, but we need to make sure it becomes a role model for us,” New Zealander Said, who arrived in England from India, where he was the head coach of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders.

The 40-year-old believes expanding his form in overseas conditions will be the biggest challenge for the Ben Stokes-led world number four side.

“It is this style of play and what we are trying to achieve is completely authentic to us in any situation and that will be the real challenge. Obviously the conditions around the world will mean we have to adapt relatively, but look, I think that’s one of the beauties of this group,” McCullum said.

“I think there have been times during the two series (vs New Zealand and India) where we have had to deal with pressure. Much has been made of this destruction that we were able to work especially with the ball in hand and search for wickets with the ball, but at times we had to handle the pressure.

“When it was needed, people actually did it, which was also really satisfying. It’s early days but it’s definitely a nice changing room to be around; What an amazing group of people and obviously a huge amount of talent and potential within the dressing room and really Ben Stokes in the lead as well as the captain. ,

England will be eyeing the upcoming home series against South Africa which starts on August 17.
