Ben Stokes finds form against Pakistan after poor IPL season

Yahoo UK and Ireland – On Tuesday, England will announce their final squad of 15 players, who will be favourites to win the Men’s World Cup for the first time in England’s history.

Summary

  • On Tuesday, England will announce their final squad of 15 players, who will be favourites to win the Men’s World Cup for the first time in England’s history.
  • Twice this summer – at Trent Bridge and at Malahide against Ireland – England have been indebted to the runs of Tom Curran at number eight.
  • Curran appears a vastly improved cricketer over the past year, and it is hard to see how England can now leave him out of their final World Cup 15.
  • There seems a strong likelihood that Stokes will be rested in the final ODI, with the series safely won and England still experimenting ahead of the World Cup.
  • The next time he leads England in a bilateral ODI, it may be as a World Cup champion.
