Our best is yet to come - Joe Root
Our best is yet to come - Joe Root

England’s campaign has been a mixed bag so far, as they lost to the West Indies owing to the absolute genius of Chris Gayle.  That was followed by an unbelievable win over in Mumbai and an out of sorts victory over Afghanistan in Delhi. Joe Root, however, believes that his side’s best performance is yet to come in the match against Sri Lanka at Delhi.

“We’ve obviously not performed at our best through the whole competition yet, which, in a way, is quite exciting because that is still to come,” Root said. “The really pleasing thing for me is we are winning games of cricket, which is really important in this format of the game, so as long as we continue to do that, that is all we can worry about, getting that win tomorrow to give us the best chance of qualifying.”

Root was quick to add that England did not adapt quickly to the conditions of Delhi against Afghanistan. “It’s about adapting to conditions a bit better than we did in the previous game,” Root said. “We obviously didn’t do that very well – and not having too many preconceived ideas. We saw how the pitch played there, it might be slightly different again, so when we get out there it is about making sure that we make those assessments and are very clear on how we approach the 20 overs.”

“Every surface is different so it is about giving yourself the best chance on that particular pitch. Sometimes you might need to take a few extra balls to get accustomed to it but ultimately it is about playing the situation in front of you, reading the pitch and score if you are chasing and making sure you are working with your partner to whittle that down and take the game away from the opposition,” Root added.
