England skipper Eoin Morgan is pleased with their performance in the ongoing ICC World T20 so far and praised team’s versatility throughout the tournament. He believes this has made the “powerful side” ahead of their semi-final clash against strong New Zealand on Wednesday in Delhi.
“We showed different sides to everyone’s personality, what they have got as opposed to just what they do on a day-to-day basis. That shows the group as a whole can be very powerful.” Morgan told reporters.
In the first two matches, England batsmen smashed big totals against West Indies and South Africa and their spinners defended a small total against Afghanistan. England pacers played a brilliant role against Sri Lanka in the last match at super 10 stage.
“I feel very excited. I don’t feel that I’m close to World Cup final. I’m not going too far ahead of myself. We’ve game, a top game tomorrow against a strong New Zealand side, who probably have played the best cricket of the tournament so far in the group stages. So we are going to have a very strong game tomorrow to beat New Zealand,” Morgan said.
The England team have been in Delhi for the last 11 days. The England skipper believes that it can be an advantage against New Zealand. “We’ve grown used to the pitch a lot more than the first game here. It was probably drier and completely different circumstances.” Morgan said.
