James Anderson, the veteran English pacer, believes there is something different that he saw in the current English side - led by coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes - which he hadn't experienced through the course of his 20-year international career previously. The calmness.

"I have never been in a dressing-room before when we have chased 300 (299) on a pitch that is turning and everyone being so calm, believing we were going to chase them down," said Anderson. "That for me, after 20 years of playing international cricket, I had never seen before.

"You always get a few jittery people but one to 11 and the staff included were just calm and believed. I think that belief can go such a long way, especially with the young players we have got. We're trying to develop their confidence and experience, I think that will do wonders for them."
