The England cricket team would enter this year’s World Cup as absolute favorites since they have the most balanced and well-equipped side in ODI cricket right now. The side has never won any major ICC tournament and they would have that in mind as well.
English Test cricketer, Stuart Broad feels that the current ODI side would need to win the upcoming World Cup in order to get deemed as the best English limited overs side in history.
“You talk about eras of sports teams. You are only judged on winning trophies, aren't you? You can't name me a great sports team that hasn't won a major trophy. For this England ODI side to be classed as a great team, they're going to have to win the World Cup,” he said.
Furthermore, the pacer has also expressed confidence in the current lot of players to lift the trophy this year as players like Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy, and others have the ability to get them through.
