England’s seam bowler Liam Plunkett is hopeful for a return to England’s side ahead of the T20I World Cup in Australia. The right-arm seam bowler has not been seen in the English colors since the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. He was one of the main architects of England’s victory as he grabbed 3 wickets for 42 runs against New Zealand.
However, England’s most successful ODI bowler since the World Cup 2015 was omitted from their limited-over side which left the pace bowler half-hearted. Talking to a news network, Plunkett said that the T20I World Cup is his ultimate goal at the moment and he is working hard for a comeback.
"I am fully committed to making a comeback to the England squad in my bid to play the T20 World Cup later this year and that is my priority currently"- Plunkett said. Some speculations are also revolving around the fast bowler that he might switch his allegiance to the United States of America (USA) as his wife is an American national. However, his contract with Surrey and optimism regarding the T20I World Cup might make him think otherwise.
