If you look closely then you will find each player in English Team is match winner. But I personally would like to see some quality batting from Joe Root ( against India and Australia)
I think England has a goodd batting line up and they will do pretty well since it's there home ground. Bairstaw is having huge performance, he will have a good journey. And I don't think Stokes will exhibite a god performance, he has passed his golden era, LOL.



Hey, just noticed you are wearing bustadice signature, you are accepted. Good job man. It is one of the lucrative campaign right now.

IPL performances do not necessarily mean that the players will perform in the same manner in the World cup or tests for that matter. ODIs and Tests are a different ball game altogether.

However, England has a huge advantage since they have already adapted to the conditions.

Indeed they have solid lineup of batsmen. If somehow England reach the World Cup Final and manage to lose then I would like to see Michael Vaughan, Nasser Hussain and Micheal Holding reaction Cheesy

One can say about that Stokes but I like him as a cricketer so would like to see him bounce back in the world cup.

Thanks, I just got lucky bro!!

Yes, agreed completely different ballgame.....

But English batsmen were performing exceptionally well in White ball Cricket for quite some time that's why they are NO 1 team and still in very good form.

South Africa may be the team that is going to surprise everyone this time. I still remember the semi-final between South Africa and Australia 20 years back. The match was tied, but Australia progressed to the finals due to the higher run rate. Till that match, everyone were expecting that South Africa would be the team that was going to win the trophy.

I think they are the dark horses in this tournament(Not West Indies). Too many people underestimate them due to their choking tag, but this time might be different. They have an amazing lineup which I feel is the best one in ages.

I think they will easily make it to the semis, but I am not sure after that point.

South Africa has one of the most impressive bowling lineup among all teams. With Rabada and Ngidi in fast bowling department, South African opening bowling duo is fastest among all. Also Dale Steyn showed in IPL this season that there is still lot of cricket left in him. With his experience, it is not exaggeration to say that SA has best fast bowling. The spin department will be led by Imran Tahir and everyone of us know how dangerous he is currently. So SA surely has World Cup winning bowling but do they have WC winning batting department? In short, NO! Du Plessis and David Miller, both are offtune is ongoing IPL so middle order will suffer much. Only de Kock is in form batsman for SA. SA may be one of the competent side but I am not seeing them as a winner with this team after the introduction of this new format.

I agree with your points(Specifically the batting part), but they could get back in form during the tournament itself and their experience will help in such a format. Du Plessis and Miller could be devastating on their day which is why they still have a great chance at lifting the cup.

Both of them are world class batsman no doubt but the problem is the format of World Cup this time. It isn't like old one where team has to play group matches and then knockouts. Now every team has to play with all other participants. In new format, it is hard for an off-form player because you have to be consistent in every game. Single or few good innings won't matter. Every team need at least 3-4 batsmen who could bat at the average of 45+ throughout the tournament.

I think he will be fine despite having said this
Quote
Smith said he is not yet able to throw with full force and has had to take close fielding positions in the IPL this season, although that aspect of his game is fast improving.

South Africa may be the team that is going to surprise everyone this time. I still remember the semi-final between South Africa and Australia 20 years back. The match was tied, but Australia progressed to the finals due to the higher run rate. Till that match, everyone were expecting that South Africa would be the team that was going to win the trophy.
I think they are the dark horses in this tournament(Not West Indies). Too many people underestimate them due to their choking tag, but this time might be different. They have an amazing lineup which I feel is the best one in ages.

I think they will easily make it to the semis, but I am not sure after that point.

Their critics are right when they say that the Proteas are chokers. This has happened in almost all the major tournaments. Even after all these years, they haven't learned how to keep their cool under pressure situations. They are perhaps the best fielding side out there, and their batting and bowling would rank among the top 4. But despite all this, they lack the ability to win close matches. That's why I would rather favor a team like NZ to be in the semis instead of South Africa.

What you said is right but this time I will bet that SA will finish after NZ or in other words , SA will do better than NZ this world cup .

South Africa has one of the most impressive bowling lineup among all teams. With Rabada and Ngidi in fast bowling department, South African opening bowling duo is fastest among all. Also Dale Steyn showed in IPL this season that there is still lot of cricket left in him. With his experience, it is not exaggeration to say that SA has best fast bowling. The spin department will be led by Imran Tahir and everyone of us know how dangerous he is currently. So SA surely has World Cup winning bowling but do they have WC winning batting department? In short, NO! Du Plessis and David Miller, both are offtune is ongoing IPL so middle order will suffer much. Only de Kock is in form batsman for SA. SA may be one of the competent side but I am not seeing them as a winner with this team after the introduction of this new format.
I agree with your points(Specifically the batting part), but they could get back in form during the tournament itself and their experience will help in such a format. Du Plessis and Miller could be devastating on their day which is why they still have a great chance at lifting the cup.

Both of them are world class batsman no doubt but the problem is the format of World Cup this time. It isn't like old one where team has to play group matches and then knockouts. Now every team has to play with all other participants. In new format, it is hard for an off-form player because you have to be consistent in every game. Single or few good innings won't matter. Every team need at least 3-4 batsmen who could bat at the average of 45+ throughout the tournament.
New format? I didn't know about this to tell you the truth. Damn. This makes the tournament tougher when compared to how it was in the past.

However, I still feel that SA have a great chance at lifting the cup thanks to the fitness and experience aspects. Amla, Miller, Du plessis etc can get the job done since they have an awesome bowling lineup.

Indeed they have solid lineup of batsmen. If somehow England reach the World Cup Final and manage to lose then I would like to see Michael Vaughan, Nasser Hussain and Micheal Holding reaction Cheesy
If England manages to reach final, I doubt they will lose if the opponent is not Australia. Australia is likely to be the champion this time.
Alex Hales will miss the world cup due to taking drug. It's sad for him and team England as well.

English players do have a problem with discipline. Ben Stokes was involved in a brutal fist-fight in the city of Bristol, which left at least one individual severely injured. And yesterday, county cricketer Alex Hepburn was jailed for 5 years for sexual assault. These guys need to learn a few lessons from the old generation players, who were known for their gentlemanly behavior.

Ben Stokes once said that was the best lesson he ever had and he regretted for it. People go through times and events. You can not just blame the entire nation for one or two individuals action.

I don't know about Alex Hepburn but if that is true case then he has been treated the same way a normal English would have been treated.

Guess, He did okay in the end, right? I am excited for both of them but yes Warner for more because of my biased opinion.

Royse bhai, everyone says the same after being punished or getting caught. Hardik and Rahul saying the same thing.

Vishnu is right when he's talking about discipline, Some English players do have this problem but on individual level not as a country or team.

And yes, no one should blame or judge the entire team or country for that.
