AAP Australian Sports – As is often the case, it was from the absolute depths of despair that England’s great one-day revolution began in 2015.
- “Learning from the 2015 World Cup was a huge part of that,” Morgan said before this year’s tournament.
- Batsmen are given the freedom to go at the ball throughout the innings, with six of their World Cup squad holding a strike rate above 100.
- Their change is best illustrated when considered that headed into the 2015 World Cup, England ranked ninth in that cycle for teams in that tournament with a run-rate of 4.71.
- In the four years that followed before this year’s competition, England were by far the fastest scorers at 6.31, with Australia second with 5.78 per over.
- However, England’s biggest challenge at this year’s tournament is perhaps their own pressure.
