Australia batter Labuschagne criticizes Bazball's entry to the English dictionary, saying, "Oh man, that is garbage."

Australia batter Labuschagne criticizes Bazball’s entry to the English dictionary, saying, “Oh man, that is garbage.” Collins dictionary now includes the term “bazball,” which describes the aggressive style of play of the England Test team. Batsman Labuschagne of Australia described it as “garbage.”

The Collins dictionary coined the term “Bazball” on Wednesday to describe the bold and aggressive style of play that the England men’s cricket team, led by red-ball coach Brendon McCullum, has adopted. 

This is especially evident during this year’s Ashes series. In May 2022, McCullum, a.k.a. “Baz,” who was formerly the captain and opener for New Zealand, assumed leadership of England’s Test team.

The dictionary now formally recognises “bazball” as a noun, defining it as “a test cricket style where the batting side aims to seize the initiative by playing in an exceptionally aggressive manner.” Although the term was incorporated into the dictionary, McCullum didn’t have a strong affinity for it.

But it appears that certain members of the cricket community are not happy about the move. Australian cricketer Marnus Labuschagne, for example, voiced his dissatisfaction of the decision. As he gets ready to take on their bitter enemies in this Saturday’s Ahmedabad 2023 World Cup encounter, the right-handed batsman expressed his doubts about the decision. “Oh my god, that is trash. To be honest, I have no idea what that is.”

The word “Bazball” will be added to the upcoming print edition of the dictionary, even though it has already been added to the online version.

Australia, which has four victories in six games and is presently third in the standings, will try to solidify its position when it plays an English squad that is struggling at the storied Narendra Modi Stadium. With just two points from six games, England is at the foot of the standings and very certainly out of contention. However, Labuschagne thinks that since England has nothing to lose, they could be a formidable opponent. The Australian batter remarked, “If there’s ever a team that’s dangerous when they’re down and out.”
