As England see favourites for the world cup and anticipation grows its easy to forget 4 years ago. England performed atrociously and was knocked out by an associate nation. BANGLADESH. Where are those players?
- Moen Ali, Moen has done relatively well since this tournament. A vital player for England and consistently in all formats.
- Ian Bell, Bell has since fallen out of all England formats. Still playing for Warwickshire and doing relatively well but not setting the world alight.
- Alex Hales, recently Alex signed a white ball contract but is a back up for Roy or Bairstow.
- Joe Root since then Joe’s game in all formats has come on leaps and bounds making him one of the best batsman in the world.
- Eoin Morgan since this tournament he has transformed Englands white ball cricket. From toothless cats to feared tigers. A true turnaround.
- James Taylor sadly after this world cup in 2016 he had to retire due to a serious heart condition. He is now prospering as an England selector.
- Jos Butler now in my opinion, and many others, The best wicket-keeper batsman in the world. He had a stunning 2018 and 2019.
- Chris Woakes, Chris is a very consistent performer who is in contention for every format. Additionally, he is in the England squad.
- Chris Jordan he has fallen out of test contention and isn’t in the world cup squad.
- Stuart Broad fell out of the ODI team. Also, he isn’t as effective in test matches anymore.
6 of the 11 players are in the current world cup squad.
