Indian ace spinner R Ashwin has lauded England's approach in Test cricket but warned if the Ben Stokes-led side will be able to transcend the similar style of playing Test cricket in other regions. England was at its best against Pakistan in the 1st Test as they pulled off the exciting win on the last day of the series opener. 

England displayed their aggressive approach right from the word go as the visitors posted 507 runs in just 75 overs on Day 1 before bad light brought a premature end to the day. Four of England's batters smashed a century in the match as the Englishmen played with a run rate of 6.7. The cricket fraternity applauded Ben Stokes & Co. as their 'Bazball' approach produced yet another exciting result in the 1st Test against Pakistan. 

However, India cricketer R Ashwin seems highly impressed with England's way of playing Test cricket, he also asked if they will be able to play in a similar style everywhere in the world.

While speaking on his YouTube channel, R Ashwin said, "Michael Atherton has said that they will play like this everywhere. During the Test match, Bazid Khan said that England had nothing to lose from this Test match as they are not in contention for WTC final to which Atherton replied that McCullum and Ben Stokes have decided that is going to be their approach going forward." 

The Indian off spinner further admitted that he is looking forward to seeing more of Bazball cricket by English players. "In fact, no matter how the pitch is, it looked like they will play this way and take the pitch out of the equation. That's what England exactly did. Looking forward to seeing more of Bazball. We will see how Bazball goes and in what approach it goes because in this Test match, England scored 921-runs in 137 overs at 6.6 RPO. Can you believe it?" added Ashwin.
