England at Cricket World Cup Player by Player Analysis: England was the first to announce their World Cup 2015 squad. Their build up towards the world cup was jolted when selectors showed no more faith on Alastair Cook who is suffering from the worst dip in his limited-overs form. Wonder-boy from Ireland Eoin Morgan was chosen to serve as his replacement. England will face Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Scotland and Sri Lanka in their group matches at this WC and will expect to make it to the quarter-finals atleast.
Fans of a specific country are very excited about their team’s chances in mega-events. A team’s chance to win rests in its player’s individual performances. Like drop by drop makes a pond, player by player makes a combined team effort. Israr Ahmed Hashmi has combined the meticulous data of England’s representation at the World Cup.
