England, the reigning ICC ODI World Cup champions, are going to play in their 13th consecutive quadrennial tournament in India later this year. After winning the ICC T20 World Cup late last year under the captaincy of Jos Buttler, the English will be fancying their chances of lifting the 50-overs silverware once more.
Notably, England had mediocre performances in limited-overs cricket, especially during the 90s and 2000s. But they turned the corner in 2015 after getting eliminated from the ODI World Cup in the group stage, thanks to the Bangladesh cricket team.
The former captain Eoin Morgan, currently retired from international cricket, transformed the look and psyche of the English in the one-day format. Under his leadership, England became champions of the world for the first-time in their history in 2019.
Jos Buttler, who was his deputy at that time, has taken over the reins and looks to carry the legacy of the Irishman forward in English colours. With that in mind, SportsTiger looks at the probable squad for England in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023:
Batters: Jason Roy, Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Harry Brook, Ben Duckett, James Vince
Jason Roy has been one of the most important cricketers for the English revolution in ODI cricket in the last few years. The veteran Joe Root has played a massive role in helping the national team surge ahead in the 50-overs format, with his ability to make centuries regularly, 16 to be exact.
The experienced pro Dawid Malan hasn’t got many chances in the ODIs for England due to competition for places, but he has been able to deliver results with the bat as and when his services are needed. Harry Brook, Ben Duckett, and James Vince aren’t regulars for the English in this format, but they have all the credentials as batters to make the ODI World Cup squad later this year.
