England World Cup Squad part 3
The pace attack for England is to be led by the highest wicket taker in the Ashes- James Anderson. Currently on a vacation after his Ashes exploits, Anderson would be back in the World Cup. The right arm swing bowler has the ability to make the new ball
talk. But the thing that would be even more useful in the World Cup is his ability to use the old ball. Anderson was the star for England in the 2003 World Cup, but faded away to some degree after that. But in the last couple of years, he has become the spearhead
of the English attack and they would be depending on him heavily in cricket's most prestigious event this year.
Tim Bresnan is one man who is fast making a place for himself in the team in all 3 formats of the game. Normally known as a limited over specialist, he proved his worth as a Test match bowler in the Ashes, when he was finally given a chance in the final
2 games. Bresnan is tall and has an open chested action which allows him to get good bounce off the track. He has the ability to bowl good slower ones which can come in handy in the World Cup in the Subcontinent. Bresnan has, time and again, proved that he
is more than a tail ender when it comes to batting. His most crucial knock for England came in the World cup T-20, when he guided his team to victory against single-handedly.
Stuart Broad was the unfortunate man to be sent home during the Ashes, following a side strain. The lanky fast bowler has improved a lot and has become the mainstay of the English bowling attack. Son of the former English opening batsman, Chris Broad, Stuart
can generate serious pace with his height and can get the ball to bounce awkwardly. Though, in the World Cup, it may not be as easy to get good bounce, but his ability with the new ball may come in handy. In the T-20 World Cup, Broad came up with a new style
of bowling that worked quite well for him. The right arm pacer bowled round the wicket and full pitch wide of the off-stump, making the angle and length anything but comfortable to get under. With the bat, he too is quite handy, which he proved by his Test
hundred against last year. is the man who filled the final slot in the World Cup squad. Shahzad is reputed to be one of the best exponents of reverse swing. The right arm pacer is not a one trick pony, and can use the new ball with great efficiency as well. He has had
brief stints with the team till now, and if the rest of the attack stays fit, he may not get much of a look during the World Cup either. But, rest assured, he would be waiting to pounce on any chance he is given.
The England team looks strong and well balanced. Confidence is running high with the English these days, and with the win in the T-20 World Cup last year, has ensured that the team will enter the World Cup with high spirits. This may very well be the year
they actually win after getting to the finals.
