  1. 1. How great is this English world cup team?



Recommended Posts

England without doubt is the most balanced team of the edition of the 2019 world cup.It has great depth in batting with a plethora of all-rounders ,a great opening pair and a most verstaile boliwng attack.India was more talented with more match-winners but not as organized or balanced.

Still I would not class this english team wiuth te greta world cup team s of the pasts like West Indies,Australia,South Afrioca and Pakistan.Although not winners I rank the South African teams of 1992,1996 and 1999 better as well as the Pakistan team of 1999 and 1987.England still possibly the best English world cup team ever nad ahead of the 1983 Indians,1987 Australians and 1992 Pakistanis.The 1996 Sri Lankans and 2011 Indians were closest to this English team.The English team of 1992 were more consistent performers but not as talented.Ben Stokes,Joss Butler ,Chris Woakes and Jason Roy made the crucial difference.

England should not take the final for granted.It is very similar to the 1992 finla when Pakistan upset them.

Let us put it in perspective. They did lose to Pakistan. They are decent at best and definitely not well balanced. 

They are well balanced and the most dangerous team in the world. They have stokes in the middle order so it is not that they are top heavy.

You are 100% wrong here.

 

England are not like India. Their lower middle order starting with Morgan Stokes and buttler is the best in the world and stuff of legends

they are susceptible to bowler-friendly pitches, but this is mostly true for most teams. we saw Aus get out cheaply (barring stewie), Ind did hara-kiri, Eng have also had issues in the past. the good thing is that they bat deep, have 7 bowling options (with root), etc. they are the best team of the WC IMO, but not an ATG team.
