While England probably contains the best batting unit of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, same cannot be said about their bowling department. However, the inclusion of Jofra Archer and comeback of Mark Wood has helped them to address this concern as the bowling department looks to utilize sheer pace.
Veteran cricketer Adil Rashid believes that the brute pace could allow him to get more success as batting line-ups might aim to target the spinners. It would put the Yorkshire born under tremendous pressure but it also opens the gate of getting wickets for him. Adil has been a genuine wicket-taker post ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 for England but the 31-year old picked only 2 wickets in first 3 games of the ongoing cricket gala. Nevertheless, he is supremely confident about coming back strongly in the forthcoming games of the competition.
“It is nice having that pace in the side to try to rough up teams, then me coming on and batsmen trying to come after me. Batsmen can think they have to target the spinners so it could work in my favor and it might aid me get a five-for,” said by England’s premier white-ball spinner.
