ICC World Cup 2019: England Can Become the First Ever Team to Score More than 500 Runs in ODI’s
Power packed England opener Jason Roy is of the opinion that England can become the first team to surpass the gargantuan score of 500 in ODI cricket. Last year England posted a mammoth 481 on the board against Australia which is the highest score in an ODI match. Given the power hitting abilities of the England batting line-up, Roy feels that England has the ability to post a score in excess of 500.
Ever since England’s ouster from the 2015 World Cup, they have gained from strength to strength and have played some terrific cricket. They are the No 1 ranked ODI side in the world and has been the most consistent side in the world at the moment. They go into the tournament as one of the favourites and will back themselves to lift their maiden World Cup title.
Even Indian skipper Virat Kohli claimed the fact that England might become the first team to get5 past the 500 mark in ODI’s. Scoring 350 has been a feature in their batting in the last two years. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are two of the most important players in the side. In the form of Jos Buttler, they have an exceptional talent who has the ability to take the match away from the opposition within a blink of an eye.
“We almost did it last year and we had a couple of overs where we were a bit slack in that game so why not?” Jason Roy was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. Roy has been an integral part of the England team in this period and has scored 2938 runs in 75 matches with a staggering strike rate of 106.3.
“We’ve got the expectations every game now, it doesn’t matter if it’s a World Cup or a series – we’re expected to win,’ said Roy. ‘We’ve had that for the last two years or more where we’ve gone into series and everyone has expected us to win it. Even in Australia.
So we’re definitely a group of individuals that don’t shy away from being put on that pedestal. We definitely want to get better, we want to add another level. Just because we’re No 1 in the world doesn’t mean we’re the best ever team to play the game. And that’s where we want to fly to. We want to win the World Cup and be the best-ever team England’s had,” Jason Roy said.
