England ICC CWC Report 2019


England wins the trophy after two heartbreaks at final. The host nation wins it at three attempts. For the third successive time, the host nation wins the ICC Men’s World Cup. England went into the ICC World Cup 2019 as hot favorite and enjoyed a superb campaign. They were excluded from the group stage in ICC World Cup 2015 and in the span of four years they rebuilt their team. They were successful in rebuilding and got the world-class team who won the first-ever trophy.

Their campaign was not so smooth as it seems to be. They start in shining mode vs South Africa but had beaten fatally by Pakistan in next game. They turn around and showed their prowess against Bangladesh, Windies, and Afghanistan. England’s World Cup campaign again hit the road after the loss against Sri Lanka and Australia but they managed to win against the likes of New Zealand and India which earned them the ticket for semi-final.

Jason Roy injured himself in the round-robin stage and England lost their rhythm. They got their zeal back after his returns.

Plus Point

A great team performance

England was never reliant on one player too much. All of their players contributed more or less during the journey of domination. English openers Jason Roy and Johnny Bairstow were simply outstanding, Joe Root was an immovable object in no.3 while Ben Stokes always holds his nerves during tough times. English bowlers Jofra Archer, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid were mesmerizing.

Never lost themselves and hold their nerves

England didn’t break this time by vast criticism and hold their nerves at vital moments. They answered at every criticism in a wise way and didn’t crumble at big moments. With their mercuric performances, they proved doubters wrong and showed their incredible caliber.

Improvement Sections

England badly needs a proficient opener as the back up for Jason Roy and Johnny Bairstow. The partnership of them was so vital for England. Jason Roy was out due to injury in the round-robin stage and England suffered greatly for that. They have to find one good replacement for their talismanic openers.

England also needs a good spinner as the replacement of Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali. It will give them more variation during a critical time.

Rising Star

All of the English players are more or less experienced due to their vast County cricket experience and constant playing at the highest level. But, if we want to consider from it, Jofra Archer is the man we should take. The man of the moment. He always delivered when his team needs him. He was never disappointed. Simply outstanding, mesmerizing.
