The 20 Potential English Players for ODI World Cup 2023 Squad

The ODI world cup is around the corner and teams have started their preparation by adding as much as the ODI series to their schedule so they could have their best combinations ready for the World Cup. The 2023 ODI world cup is going to be the nostalgia of the 2011 world cup for teenagers who started watching cricket right in that era. So it’s going to be a historical one.

England’s team has always remained a favourite no matter which format’s world event is approaching. Potential English players are hard to judge for the world cup but based on their recent series, players’ current form, and fitness, we have tried to speculate the players who will be in consideration of the management once they take the hard verdict.

Opening Combo among the Potential English Players 

Jason Roy though with inconsistent form is going to be the first in the respective row and column who occasionally provides a decent head start. Jonny Bairstow is still Unsure about getting fit for the world cup even with the surety will not be a first-choice opener because of not playing particularly One Day Cricket for a long time.

Phil Salt who will be a 2nd wicket-keeper has recently been given a lot of opportunities as an opener and will be pondered while  Ben Duckett, the sweeping king is another adaptable person equally good in the opening as well as middle order. Recent Series also portray that Alex Hales in ODIs is a big No from the selection committee of England.

The unprecedented middle order of England’s team

Joe-root has been ruling test Cricket for a long time. The former England test Captain’s class in ODIs is also luminous and can prove to be a wall in turning spin wickets of India. Dawid Malan is in good nick, especially in ODIs, and has scored centuries in Australia and Bangladesh which are exactly contrasting pitches proving to be an exceptional player both against spin as well as quick.

Harry Brook, a special talent, has amassed immense attention and audience courtesy of his class. Josh, the Boss, Jos Buttler will be playing as a  proper middle-order batsman with hard hitters already present in the crew. James Vince can also be considered for the squad most probably in reserves because of so many options they already have.

Batting All-Rounders and Finishers among the Potential England Players 

Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali are white ball stars and will be very handy for England in the wickets of India because of the bowling option they provide. The right-arm hard-hitting batsman has acquired immense power to take the run rate up the demand in a matter of few overs. Will Jacks will also be included in the reserves as a replacement for two of their obvious players?

Sam Curran has also got the power to make partnerships or uplift the run rate by scoring at a  high rate.

Indian wickets and England’s options for Spin bowling

Adil Rashid who left the Players as Virat Kohli astounded even on a pitch where Spinners get punished heavily says it all. He has got the guts to make himself count.

Rehan Ahmad who has recently made his debut against Bangladesh will be there to compliment Rash.

Probable Fast bowlers 

Reece-Topley the injury prone and  Chris Woakes though have not combined bowled much will be making a dream new ball pair. The Ferocious man with a high pace Jofra Archer has just got back in action and will be ready to showcase his brilliance.

Mark Wood who is in the best of his days showing his attributed pace in the IPL will be their prime bowler in the event. David Willey with his ability to bowl at any stage of innings and having played all recent ODI matches will also be certain.
