After suffering a lot of heart-breaks, England eventually broke the final hoodoo to win their first-ever 50-over World Cup title. In an action-packed contest filled with many seesaw events, England prevailed over New Zealand to start their summer in an iconic manner.
However, now the focus shifts to the purest form of the game as hosts England are scheduled to lock horns against arch-rivals Australia in the forthcoming Ashes series. England’s leading wicket-taker in Tests James Anderson feels amused to see his camp in great spirit, but urged the unit to use it to bag success in the red-ball cricket.
The veteran cricketer highlighted the importance of carrying momentum into a series as he wants England to start the series on a winning note. Moreover, the 36-year old who is doubtful for the opening game of the Ashes provided an update on his fitness as he revealed a good feeling about bowling. Ashes series is set to get underway from August 1 with a game at Birmingham.
