England’s limited bowling team recently put on another dominant performance in the One-Day International (ODI) and T20 International (T20I) series against Pakistan. First, the host crushed the visitors in the ODI leg 3-0, then they continued the momentum and defeated Pakistan 2-1 in T20I Series.
In response to the sensational performance of cricket, England’s leading Test bowler Stuart Broad calculated that the current Eoin Morgan-led side has all the potential to win the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Broad, which was part of the Sky Sports commentary for the three-match T20I leg, said it all after beating England Babar Azam in Pakistan in the series decision.
‘I was just watching Morgs [Morgan] lift the trophy, and I think we will win the World Cup. We covered so many bases. It all looks pretty rosy, ” said Broad.
The patient from Nottinghamshire further claimed that with the presence of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, the English side would become more deadly and dangerous to opponents. Stokes, who led England in the ODI series, was particularly reassured for the T20I matches. Likewise, Archer was not selected for the shortest format, as he recently performed with the province of Sussex again after the elbow surgery.
“Stokes comes into this team, although I do not know where he bats, and I think Archer will be a great addition. “We did not take early wickets in the match in the Pakistan series, so I would throw Archer three overs in the match, because you have Chris Jordan, who can bowl at death’s.” added Broad.
Meanwhile veteran West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo revealed his reaction to Broad’s comments. In fact, the Trinidadian made a turn at Broad, saying that the Englishman had now turned himself into a comedian.
“Stuart Broad did not know the comedian. All the best to all teams. Let’s wait and see, ” Answer Bravo ESPNcricinfosee Instagram post.
Former Indian cricketer Murali Kartik also shared his opinion on Broad’s comments, saying England are enlarging their own squad by claiming the trophy is coming home.
“I think England are enlarging their own team by saying they come home for everything, even if the Trophy is Millions of miles away,” wrote Kartik in the comments section.
