The English fans are pumped-up as the world cup is back to its home and their team has pretty high chances of lifting the trophy this time. England has never won a world cup but with the location advantage and familiarity to conditions, England team looks confident and strong enough to make this their best world cup performance. With Eoin Morgan as the captain, this young team is looking fit to play knockouts.
The current strategy of England would be to play by their strengths and judge the conditions. Irrespective of what the weather is, it is England who should be able to read it the best because it is their home ground. Morgan backed his side with the same answer. The team management is happy with their ongoing performance and is positive about their chances of emerging victorious in this tournament. In a press conference post their victory against Bangladesh, Morgan said that he was surprised with the way team took the defeat against Pakistan and this win is our best reply to opponents. He also said that this tournament is supposed to be high scoring and it is going as expected.
THE CURRENT BATTING PERFORMANCE:
As a captain, he was very happy with the way England was batting. Especially they way Jason Roy has batted is promising and relieving as a captain. After seeing an average batting line-up like Pakistan score 350, it is obvious that nothing short of this mark is a safe score. If not 400+, we will see more than a few 350+ scores in the left tournament which is a sad yet harsh truth for bowlers. That makes it important for the teams to have a player who can it more than a century. The temperament of Jason Roy has been the key to his high scores. He is not someone who will rest after completing a 100 individual runs on the board. He has evolved as a batsman and is currently the leading run-scorer of world cup 2019. Having him on one side is helping the team to build partnerships throughout 50 overs which shows how strong this batting side is.
The team is coordinating well both on and off the field. We make sure that every match is played with a win-win mindset. As discussed earlier, any interruption by rain can result in a point lost which will bother any team in the next phase of the tournament.
Though the bowling attack is young, they are skilled and have matured into much better bowlers after playing on different tours. Both Archer and Wood understand their responsibility and have started off well. As Buttler’s injury, the team has updated that he is completely fine and will continue to contribute for the team. It was a minor injury and he will be fit by the next match. England is looking forward to a better tournament and reaching the finale.
