Bazball is an informal term coined by ESPN Cricinfo UK editor Andrew Miller during the 2022 English cricket season, referring to the style of play of the England cricket team in Test matches.

It was developed after the appointments of Brendon McCullum (whose nickname is Baz) as Test head coach.

After McCullum became England's Test cricket coach in May 2022, he expressed concern that the term couldn't capture the nuances of his approach or style.

The term, gaining traction in cricketing media, is attributed to McCullum who dislikes 'Bazball', stating it's vague and doesn't reflect his style.

Baz is derived from Brendon McCullum's longstanding nickname. As a player he was known for his aggressive stroke play, and as New Zealand captain had a highly successful period when he used an attacking approach.

This approach, Steve McMorran wrote in Associated Press, meant McCullum managed "to upend the Black Caps' traditional conservative approach and underdog mindset.
