Ian Botham, former England Test cricketer and captain felt that the team must think again about their ODI plans and the current plan should be discarded and the working for the new plan should begin now. If they don’t do it then they will be laughed at by the Australians in the World Cup.
Botham has said that there is no possibility on this Earth that England should take the team that he saw in the Cardiff ODI which was battered by India can win the World Cup. Also, he included that unless they begin changing things now, they will again miss the opportunity to win the trophy that has always evaded them.
Botham said that he is edgy for England to perform well, including that he would actually be so joyful to see them win the World Cup that he has vowed to treat every last part of the squad to a slap up night of being celebrated if England wins the finals in Melbourne one year from now, The Mirror reported.
At the same time, the former captain said that if England take their current methodology into that competition, then he is sure it will be a supper for one. He said that what he saw in Cardiff altogether discouraged him, and it wasn’t simply a one off, or an awful day at the workplace, including that they have seen it such a variety of times some time recently.
Botham stated that Chris Jordan is no more a one-day bowler at this time, including that he doesn’t have the control, which is a disgrace on the grounds that he supposes he is a brilliant, skilled fellow, however his quality lies in Test cricket. He included the same accomplishes for Joe Root, Ian Bell and Alastair Cook and there is nothing wrong with that whatsoever.
Botham said that the issue is however; one can’t have all of the three men in their top five because they score runs at a slower pace.
He additionally said that England’s one day batting is light years behind whatever is left of the world, particularly against spin. Botham included that he simply take a gander at the batting lineups far and wide and they are attempting to rival their quality and animosity.
