England is preparing to win back-to-back World Cups in India.

The defending champions enter the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in good shape, ready to defend the title they famously won on home soil in 2019.
Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, and Chris Woakes make up the squad.

Winners of the tournament with the best finish (2019)

England had high expectations going into the tournament, and Eoin Morgan’s charges delivered on the biggest stage of all, winning their first ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in spectacular fashion.

The final was a classic, with England and New Zealand tied at the end of the 50 overs and then again at the end of the Super Over, with the eventual winner determined only by a countback of total boundaries.

Important match against New Zealand (5 October), Ahmedabad

New Zealand will undoubtedly seek vengeance for what happened in the epic World Cup final in 2019, and England must be prepared for this when the two rivals meet in the tournament opener in Ahmedabad.

Ben Stokes won that historic match with an unbeaten 84 and then again during the Super Over, and the star all-rounder will be crucial to the outcome of this match as well.

Both teams will be aiming for a semi-final spot at this year’s event, and a quick start will be crucial in assisting England and New Zealand in doing so.

While England’s 50-over form has been somewhat inconsistent since their famous first title in 2019, they will be encouraged by their efforts to win last year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, as well as their recent form since arriving in India.

During the warm-up matches, England looked in good form, with Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, and Moeen Ali scoring runs and Reece Topley and Adil Rashid taking wickets.

There is no doubt that England has the ability to win back-to-back titles this year, and if they can quickly adjust to the conditions in India, they should at the very least reach the semi-finals.
