Joe Denly, one of the brightest talents of the domestic cricket of England, failed to go big on the International circuit. Playing a total of 14 Tests, 16 ODIs and 12 T20Is, the aggressive batsman only mustered batting averages of 30.00, 34.30 and 9.60 respectively. With competition increasing in the national team, he was eventually benched as far as white-ball cricket is concerned.
However, with T20 World Cup nearing, Denly has no plans to watch things from the ground’s balcony. With COVID-19 hijacking all the cricketing activities, the senior pro would have very limited opportunities to make a good case for himself.
Not only that, a power-packed top-order means that Denly has to look for a place in the middle order. Nevertheless, the right-hander revealed that he would do all he can to get registered in the T20 World Cup squad for England.
“I think the role might be a little different. As far as the top-order batters go in this current England T20 side, there are a few. So it might be a middle-order position, with my leg-spin utilized a bit more, I just want to enjoy these moments while they are here,” said the 34-year old cricketer.
