The turmoil of the T20 World Cup is to begin from October 17. England was also seen as a strong contender in this tournament played in UAE and Oman. But, after Ben Stokes’ distance from cricket and Jofra Archer’s injury, cricket pundits believe that the English team will be left behind in this World Cup of instant cricket. Meanwhile, England’s explosive wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler has claimed that the team can win the T20 World Cup without Stokes and Archer. Butler says that there are many more match-winning players in this team of Eoin Morgan, who can make the team champion for the second time.
Speaking to Reuters, Butler said: “We’re one of the top contenders, we’re a great team. We know we will miss two superstars Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, but once you look at the list, we have many match winners. According to Liam Livingstone’s game against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the T20 series and The Hundred, he will enter the World Cup with a lot of confidence. It’s a great story for Tymal Mills to make a comeback. He has that left arm angle and that pace and Mills also bowls very good slower balls, so it’s a good thing to have a player like him in the team who can cause a lot of problems for the team in front.
In the last T20 World Cup played in 2016, the England team had reached the final. However, in the final match, the team had to face defeat at the hands of West Indies. Earlier in the year 2010, the team has captured one of this trophy. At the same time, in 2019, the team won the 50-over World Cup. Under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan, this time the team has to play its first match against West Indies on 23 October.
