Bairstow confident of taking IPL form to World Cup

England is sitting as one of the top contenders to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and a major reason for that is their batting powerhouse. One of the main pillars of this department is the wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow who opens the innings alongside Jason Roy.

Playing in the running season of the glitzy Indian Premier League (IPL) for Sunrisers Hyderabad, the flamboyant batsman has proved his mettle. Now, the 29-year old cricketer is aiming to continue his superlative run in the forthcoming mega-event which is set to commence from May 30 in England and Wales. To prepare for the World Cup, the sagacious cricketer would return to his country after the game against Chennai Super Kings on April 23.

Sharing his views ahead of the glamorous 10-team competition, the Yorkshire born said that England is set to play a lot of cricket ahead of the World Cup which is obviously going to benefit them. The 29-year old was jubilated to be among the top run-getters of the tournament and expressed his desire to produce similar shows for England in the all-important 50-over tournament.
