Geoffrey Boycott told : "So I get Buttler leaving India but it is poor that Bairstow is not replacing him for the second Test. It has to be because Ed Smith (chief selector) wants to see this other kid, Foakes, get a go. Smith clearly does not want Jonny playing as a keeper-batsman," External link

bbc Wednesday, December 21, 2016 8:42:00 PM EAT

Geoffrey Boycott said : "But he needs something different going on between the ears, to think better about it. Will England always be in a spin? England were not expected to win in India, but the ordeal once again exposed eternal failings in the batting against and bowling of spin. Their most famous recent series win in Asia, the 2-1 triumph over India in 2012, was built on the runs of Cook and Kevin Pietersen, along with the world-class spin of Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar. Since Pietersen, Swann and Panesar last featured for England, they have played 10 Tests in Asia and won only once, losing seven. Replacements for high-quality spinners and players of slow bowling have not been found. Finding spinners from a domestic game that often mistrusts them has long been difficult for England, but new rules on the toss in the County Championship helped Leach and Middlesex's Ollie Rayner prosper in 2016. As for the likes of Root, Bairstow, Moeen and Stokes, the talent to become a successful player of spin exists, but a change in attitude may be required. "They just have to keep their wickets intact, to keep batting," "But they can't stop scoring runs because they are frightened to death of defending - they are absolutely rubbish at it. "They do not know how to play the turning ball. It demands a different type of concentration, temperament and mental application" External link

Geoffrey Boycott said : "But he needs something different going on between the ears, to think better about it. Will England always be in a spin? England were not expected to win in India, but the ordeal once again exposed eternal failings in the batting against and bowling of spin. Their most famous recent series win in Asia, the 2-1 triumph over India in 2012, was built on the runs of Cook and Kevin Pietersen, along with the world-class spin of Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar. Since Pietersen, Swann and Panesar last featured for England, they have played 10 Tests in Asia and won only once, losing seven. Replacements for high-quality spinners and players of slow bowling have not been found. Finding spinners from a domestic game that often mistrusts them has long been difficult for England, but new rules on the toss in the County Championship helped Leach and Middlesex's Ollie Rayner prosper in 2016. As for the likes of Root, Bairstow, Moeen and Stokes, the talent to become a successful player of spin exists, but a change in attitude may be required. "They just have to keep their wickets intact, to keep batting," "But they can't stop scoring runs because they are frightened to death of defending - they are absolutely rubbish at it. "They do not know how to play the turning ball. It demands a different type of concentration, temperament and mental application" External link
