As a cricket fan there is nothing better than watching England playing ODI cricket at the moment. They play with power, pace and precision. England’s current crop of players are top of the world rankings ahead of India and, after beating the latter in their most recent series, you can see why.
This year England have set the highest ever ODI score by reaching 481-6, a truly remarkable score, but when England captain Eoin Morgan was asked about the score he simply stated he was disappointed they did not reach 500. This just shows the mindset of the current England white ball cricket team.
They have the power of Jason Roy and Jos Butler combined with the finesse of Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow. Not to mention a bowling attack that features the likes of Adil Rashid, Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett.
With the ODI World Cup set to take place in England and Wales in 2019, is this England team reaching its prime just in time or getting ready far too early?!
Let us know what you think England’s chances are next year…
