'No quick fix to batting woes'
England coach Trevor Bayliss knows there is no quick fix to his side's batting problems against spin but hopes that their recent exposure to conditions in Bangladesh will help them in a five-Test series against India, starting next week.
After a narrow win in the opening Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong, England suffered an astonishing collapse on the third day of the second match at Dhaka, losing 10 wickets in a single session in their second innings to be all out for 164.
Next up for Alastair Cook's men is a testing series in India, starting on Nov. 9, on pitches similar to those in Bangladesh.
"I think, from a batting point of view, there's been some good signs during this series," Bayliss told Sky Sports. "We don't come across those types of wickets very often at all, or at all.
"The only thing you can do is experience it more often. There's no quick fix but, as we saw, there were batters in the two tests that were able to bat for a period of time and score runs.
"They've got it in them but it's just about doing it more often and more consistently and learning from those innings."
Gary Ballance mustered only 24 runs in total and his position at number four will be up for discussion.
"I'm sure that will be one of the things we discuss. It was one of the things we discussed before the series, the different options we have, so that we weren't surprised by anything."
