5:04 Sky Cricket experts discuss the departure of Ed Smith as the national determinant of England and whether he is successful in the role Sky Cricket experts discuss the departure of Ed Smith as the national determinant of England and whether he is successful in the role of Nasser Hussain, speaking on The Cricket Show, reflects on the departure of Ed Smith as Determinant of the England national team, whether his spell was successful, and if it was a positive move for head coach Chris Silverwood to be in charge of selecting teams … I think it was a very successful period for Smith. If you go back three Tests, when England beat India, in Chennai, they won nine of their previous 12 Tests, and won four series in a row. They were number one in T20 cricket and 50 over, and World Cup winners. It was a hugely successful period, after which it is evident that they have lost three consecutive Test matches in India and while you can generally say that as a good determinant, he made some mistakes. Smith will leave the European Central Bank at the end of April as part of restructuring the selection system for men’s teams in England twice leaving Stuart Broad out, for example – once in Barbados and once, famously, at The Ageas Bowl when Brody sat next area The player will explain to everyone why he should play. There were also rumors and murmurs about his contact with senior players and when he left players off the field, rumors about his behavior around the team, and rumors that some players did not particularly enjoy him. Work. But, as a national chooser, I fear that you will upset a few people. Sometimes that’s your turn, I totally enjoyed the fact that he tried to do it differently. Always a little out of reach, he used data and analytics. He was a lot of horses for training sessions but what he probably didn’t do was stick to his rifle enough with the horses for training sessions because when you are horses for training sessions. It leads to problems. Smith in a conversation with England test captain Joe Root Sam Curran played in England against India in the summer of 2018 and ended up being the man of the series – that’s the horse in this tournament, and then England moved to Barbados where Smith had to be assertive and said, “Sam, didn’t Prepare the horse for this training session. He’s tall bowlers in Barbados, and the cold you are there, the Curran you are out, he was not strong. He stuck with Curran and gigged Broad, then in The Ageas Bowl against the West Indies last summer, where Mark Wood had been Throwing well in South Africa, where I needed that extra speed, kept Smith Wood and Archer inside and ruled Broad again.If he had gone the other way and Wood left outside, Wood would have turned around and said, “ Wait, I played brilliantly in South Africa. ” Smith tried to reinvent the wheel and it caused problems. 4:56 Stuart Broad was “angry and dashing” after being disqualified from the England team in his first test against the West Indies last summer, Stuart Broad was “angry and dashing” after being disqualified from England team in the first test against the West Indies last summer Once they picked 15 teams, for example, I think they then changed the rules and said we want the captain and the coach to pick the final squad, so I think Smith will have an argument. [about not being totally responsible for bad results]But there were rumors – we don’t know, we weren’t there – that he participated in Barbados and in the Ageas Bowl, saying this is the eleventh you should pick and that’s why this change might have happened. The captain should have the eleventh number he wants on the field. What I’m going to say is that when Smith was fired – let’s make no mistake, he got rid of – a lot of people said, “ That’s right after this winter’s chaos of rotation but I think that’s a little rough, everyone this winter bought the rotation – spoke English cricket manager Ashley Giles is passionately in this show about players who need rest during the pandemic, and I think it’s hard to get rid of Smith. Because of the rotation policy, if you look back, the two nightmare choices in India were in Ahmedabad and that was really through Captain and Coach Joe Root and Chris Silverwood. Head Coach Chris Silverwood will be responsible for selecting England’s teams in the future. They chose four tailors and only one opponent in the pink ball test that ended in the square and finished in two days, then they went to the next match and chose for the previous a test match in that next match, they chose only two seamstresses, but that was a little bit for the tailors and they were a bit short, then crush Raisa pant brilliantly by Ben Stokes at the end of the day. Some of the selection issues on the field were driven by the captain and coach, not much Smith. Silverwood is the determinant now and due to Covid bubbles – he has seen about 40 cricketers over the past year – and the fact that he’s just out of county after previously coaching in Essex, that means he’s fine, if he wants to pick Ole Robinson this summer he has seen him a cricketer in the county. And in bubbles, James Prause is exactly the same. Somehow, it’s all on Silverwood now. Is this a good thing or not? It’s a good thing to some extent as there is clear accountability but if England is down a bad course then someone says “Who is to blame?” In the past, you weren’t sure because you’re not sure who picked the team, the blame was shared a bit. Now it’s very clear. You can expect to throw a few nuts in their direction if things don’t go well. Michael Atherton on Chris Silverwood The first two years you know about the players – Duncan Fletcher and I knew about Michael Vaughan, Marcus Treskothek, Steve Harmison, and Andrew Flintoff, but two years later, when you’re on a vicious circle of global cricket traveling around the world, and a name comes out, to How far has Root or Silverwood seen it lately to know what it’s doing well? This is when you need a boy scout. You don’t want the England cricket team to become a closed shop that you can’t go in because everyone there is looking after each other.
