The Cricket World Cup Begins!!!

Today marks the start of the Cricket World Cup as hosts England take on South Africa in the first game of the tournament at The Kia Oval. England start as favourites with home advantage and also being ranked as the World Number one team. England will face stiff competition along the way from India, Australia and the West Indies to name but a few.

The competition takes place between the 30th May and 14th July as 9 teams battle head to head in a league style tournament followed by the top 4 going into a semi final and final respectively with the final to be held on the 14th July at Lords.

Some of the worlds best players such as Joe Root, Steve Smith, Virat Kholi, Adil Rashid and Trent Bolt among the many.

A fantastic event which will hopefully be all the better for some nice weather and plenty of runs and wickets.

England, the best ODI cricket team in the World….

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…
