“For the moment there’s a very successful recipe and things are working – when things are working there’s no need for change”
England pace bowler Jade Dernbach has defended the national team’s bowling attack for the upcoming Ashes series against Australia, stating that it is anything but “one-dimensional”.
Many pundits and former players have questioned England’s tactics of wanting to use taller bowlers simply based on the fact that they can utilise the extra bounce they get from the Australian pitches.
“They’ve obviously picked a lot of new guys in that squad, but I think they will only get a chance if guys are out of form or there are injuries,” Dernbach said. “For the moment there’s a very successful recipe and things are working – when things are working there’s no need for change.
“Everyone’s spoken about the fact they’ve picked a lot of big and tall fast bowlers, but they’re picked for a reason. Those are the guys who have been successful, so I don’t see that as being a one-dimensional attack in any way, shape or form.
“They’re coming off a Series win, so there’s no reason they can’t do that again over there.”
