Dom Bess added to the team in the second match against New Zealand

Dom Bess (off spiner) will be in the England team in the second match against New Zealand. Bess will be a replacement for Jack Leach in case of injury or some other things "We will see when we get there but I'm making sure we've got every base covered," he said, as quoted by cricbuzz Silverwood is unhappy with his team's game in the last match and they seem to have learned something from it "I felt we showed a lack of discipline at times, with shot management, and we paid the price for that," he said.

"It's something we addressed, we talked about in the dressing room. One thing I am keen for this team to do is face problems and grab a difficult day." As the players from the IPL rest according to the decisions in the national team, the inexperience of the team was felt "The only way we get to experience is by playing," Silverwood said.

"The talent is there. I have spent a lot of time with these guys. The one thing Covid has given me is time with them, living in the bubble, watching them, talking to them, seeing them train." "I know there's a lot of talent there.

The one thing we need is to get experience into them, and this is an opportunity to do that.

Burns and Sibley

Rory Burns and Sibley are players that Silverwood is delighted with "On the plus side, we saw Rory Burns come back in after being left out in India, show a lot of character.

I thought he played beautifully and was really pleased to see him get his hundred." "Then [Dom] Sibley in the second innings, I thought he showed a lot of discipline and guts to stick in. He showed us how stubborn he can be, which is why he's there."

According to the coach's decision, the English made the decision not to try and chase down the target set "They made it very difficult," Silverwood said. "They swung the ball throughout the game and the seam bowlers in particular held their lengths very well.

It was very difficult to score. The scoring rate wasn't much above three anyway. " "At the same time we thought that if we could get ourselves in a position we may be able to push the button. Unfortunately we didn't find ourselves in that position so we had to make sure we saw the game through." "I thought Dominic Sibley did a great job of doing that, and showed great resilience."
