ICC T20 World Cup 2021: England – T20 Ranking, Matches & Squad

Since the ICC announced that the T20 World Cup will take place, the fans of Team England have been pretty amped up and for the right reasons. The excitement among the supporters of team England is touching new heights especially after the final squad was announced.

The details are as follows – 

Squad

The selection committee of England recently recalled Tymal Mills to the final squad but they did not call back Ben Stokes. The all-rounder chose to take an indefinite break from the sport in a bid to improve his mental health.

With that stated, the final squad that will represent England looks like this – 

  • Eoin Morgan (capt)
  • Moeen Ali
  • Jonny Bairstow
  • Sam Billings
  • Jos Buttler
  • Sam Curran
  • Chris Jordan
  • Liam Livingstone
  • Dawid Malan
  • Tymal Mills
  • Adil Rashid
  • Jason Roy
  • David Willey
  • Chris Woakes
  • Mark Wood
  • Tom Curran (traveling reserve)
  • Liam Dawson (traveling reserve) and
  • James Vince (traveling reserve).

Team Ranking

Thanks to the impressive efforts of Eoin Morgan, Team England found its way into the second position in Group 1 of Super 12. Australia is in the first position, and South Africa and the West Indies are in the third and fourth positions respectively.

Several experts of the sport and ardent fans came forward with their concerns regarding this development. According to them, England is placed at a proverbial ‘group of death’ as all the teams in the group are strong.

In terms of skills, England will have a tough time competing against the West Indies as the latter’s squad has pretty strong players. On the other hand, Australia can also pose a serious threat for team England as the former chose to select some of its strongest players.

Match schedule

  • England will be facing the West Indies on the 23rd of October, 2021. Their match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
  • England will be facing Australia on the 30th of October, 2021. Their match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
  • England will be facing South Africa on the 6th of November. Their match will start at 7:30 PM IST.

Can they win the event?

Team England is pretty enthusiastic about their chances to win the event this year and for the right reasons. Firstly, they have an impressive squad, and secondly, all the members of their team are in their best form.

Furthermore, they were very close to winning the event in 2016. They defeated West Indies by four wickets which was an amazing feat!

English fans are quite hopeful as the English team has been showing consistent improvement in their game, especially in white-ball matches.

As per official records, the overall performance of Team England in both T20 internationals as well as One Day Internationals is commendable.

So, in a nutshell, the chances of Team England presenting a first-class performance in this event are pretty high. Only time will tell what is in store for Team England, though!
