England in last Champions Trophy
England is going to arrange ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019. As England was one of the favorites to lift the Champions Trophy title in 2017 as the last time they hosted an ICC event. However, they suffered a semi-final exit, after getting beaten by Pakistan on a slow pitch in Cardiff. Eoin Morgan, however, suggested that England had come out of the experience a better side.
Memorizing the Champions Trophy-17, English captain asserted, “After that 2017 semi-final, the chat in the dressing room was a combination of two things. Were we beaten by the better side and were we playing on a wicket that suited us?’ Since then, we’ve played on similar wickets — at Sydney and Wellington — and in both, we played better the second time around.”
Then added also, “As long as we go out to play the way we play. Our style has evolved over the last number of years, from extremely aggressive to positive, aggressive, smart cricket. I’m very excited.”
Eoin Morgan is confident for World Cup
As Eoin Morgan is now preparing to lead what is arguably the strongest side in the World Cup this year. Perhaps the strongest side England has ever fielded in the flagship tournament. England has identified as the team to beat at the World Cup-19 and will be carrying a piece of huge baggage. With expectations abound for them to lift their first 50 over the global trophy.
English captain explained the team conditions and the player’s conditions for the sake of ICC World Cup-19, “We’ve talked about being favorites a lot since the Champions Trophy. We went into that tournament and only got to the semi-finals and we’ve spoken about that. We’ve tried to replicate being favorites ever since, which we have been in every series. The guys are relaxed, they’re used to the fact they’re favorites. It’s more a case now of what needs to be done to prepare well.”
