Revealed: England’s Cricket Secrets

From: Ian Canaway

So what’s the secret of England’s recent (July/Aug 2011) Test Cricket success?

Jim White of the Telegraph has written an interesting piece today. It explores some of the reasons he sees as being the key contributing factors. You can read it here:

The analysis is insightful, thought provoking and definitely worth a read.  Especially the Alistair Cook ‘sweaty palm’ annecdote.

My favourite quote is from Andy Flowers interview for coach:

“He said he needed to change the culture in the dressing room. England needed to be rid of what he described as “player power plc”, those individuals who saw their place in the national side as a route to financial improvement and whose presence, Flower reckoned, inhibited newcomers.”

Remember, cricket is a team sport!
