As usual Plunkett does not get a mention. His three top order wickets in the middle overs does not get a mention, but he actually kept England in the game. And he consistently gets those vital wickets He was not selected for the games we lost.
Understand its performances in this World Cup....am a England supporter and go along with selection except i'd have selected Warner over Root (but only just) and if on type of wicket like Lords then De Grandhomme instead of Ferguson.
@233 Firstly Smith is the best Test batsman in the world whilst Kohli is the best all-round batsman. This selection is based on WC performances rather than reputation. Kohli had less batting time & opportunities to shine in the middle due to his openers doing very well. This is why Root ending up playing 25% & Williamson 52% more balls than Kohli - even in ignoring the final.
England and WALES Champions of the world
Gotta say I agree with the others on here. David Warner for Root. Cracking the world cup with a great final that was a good advertisement for a under rated sport. Glad England won but do feel for NZ
All these comments about the extra run... 1. Its doen to umpire to decide when the act is.2. Archers 1st ball in super over was on the line, NZ had an extra ryn for the wide and 2 for what they ran on rebowl.3. Comment was made by a bitter Ausi, enough said.4. Theres many more extra runs for both teams to be found after 600 balls.
No Kholi, excellent, by the way, well done NZ you are a credit to sport, as for our cheating Aussies, we are CHAMPIONS,
"..Also whats Warner done wrong to miss out .."He still needs to wait a while to lose his 'cheat' reputation
This HYS wins the recorded for the most amount of complete weirdos in one place.Considering some of the football threads I’ve read, take a bow people.
all this negative chatter about wickets verse boundaries deciding the winner is absurd ..... the rationale is logical ... boundaries are positive and get bums off seats ...retaining wickets is more akin to test cricket and negative for 50 ODI ... make sense now ?
Yeah, they were given an extra run. New Zealand are the real champs.
Joe Root in team of the tournament??? What about Baber Azam, Kohli?Also whats Warner done wrong to miss out , he's the second highest scorer??
How are we going to watch the slow motioncricket after the World Cup ?
Only one team of the tournament and that's England.
That's a great 11, but the first name on my team sheet every day of the week and twice on Sundays is Jos Buttler.
1975: WI beat Aus by 17 runs1979: WI beat Eng by 92 runs1983: Ind beat WI by 43 runs1987: Aus beat Eng by 7 runs1992: Pak beat Eng by 22 runs1996: SL beat Aus by 7 wickets1999: Aus beat Pak by 8 wickets2003: Aus beat Ind by 125 runs2007: Aus beat SL by 53 runs2011: Ind beat SL by 6 wickets2015: Aus beat NZ by 7 wickets2019: Eng beat NZ by 0 runs and -2 wickets
Joe Root is arguably the best TEST MATCH batsman in the world but to give him a plave in WHITE BALL cricket ahead of Virat Kohli is simply absurd.
Stokes should not be in any England team he is a terrible example to kids and a pure thug whose case was and is a prime example of the rigged state of the legal system ( watch the video) ...a disgrace.
Wouldn’t a post World Cup exhibition 1st XI Vs 2nd XI for Charity be a great event to schedule each time?Put this team against the next best XI: something like:1. Warner2. Bairstow3. Kohli4. Morgan5. Buttler6. Neesham7. Woakes8. Mustafizur9. Boult10. Chahal11. AfridiOr whoever. Would be a good way to finish off.
