T20 World Cup: The T20 World Cup is going to be organized in the UAE later this year. In this World Cup, going to be held after five years, England is being seen as a contender for the winner. England captain Eoin Morgan has told the real strength of his team. Morgan believes that England have been able to maintain their momentum in the last two years and this is their biggest strength.
Morgan, however, considers all matches important. The captain of the English team said, “I think our biggest strength is to maintain the momentum for the last two years. In T20 cricket, where matches turn quickly, we have a very talented team. All matches are important for us “
Big challenge ahead
However, the UAE’s challenge is not going to be easy for England. England has not played a T20 match in the UAE since 2015. How quickly England players will be able to adapt to the conditions of the UAE will decide their success. Morgan said, “I think we have got the momentum going well and it is important for us to keep going and learn as much as we can because the tournament is going to be away from home. We are fully prepared for that.”
Many players from England, however, have the experience of playing in the UAE through the IPL. Big players like Morgan, Bairstow, Buttler, Stokes were part of IPL season 13 played in UAE last year. Not only this, these players will once again get a chance to play in UAE through IPL before the World Cup.
England’s first match in the T20 World Cup will be Dubai on 23 October against West Indies, who became champions after defeating them in 2016.
