Stuart Broad supports the English team’s depth and “fearless” cricket to win them the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and Oman later this year.

The England Broad Test Crimper was part of Air sportsThe commentary team for the T20 three-game series against Pakistan, which Eoin Morgan’s men claimed 2-1 after winning a deciding match at Emirates Old Trafford by three wickets with two balls to spare.

England have been without Ben Stokes, a rested all-rounder, and also without quick pitcher Jofra Archer, who has just returned to action with Sussex County after elbow surgery.

However, a number of other players faced off against Pakistan, including series player Liam Livingstone, who beat England’s fastest international century in the first T20 at Trent Bridge, with only 42 deliveries.

Large says Air sports:i was just watching morgs [Morgan] lift the trophy and I think we’ll win the World Cup. We have so many bases covered. Everything looks pretty rosy.

“Stokes comes into this team, although I don’t know where he’s beating, and I think Archer will be an incredible addition.

“We didn’t take early wickets in the power play in the Pakistani series, so I would throw Archer three times in the power play because you have Chris Jordan who can play to the death.

“If all of a sudden you get Livingstone at bat at No 7, Sam Curran – who swings the white ball and is a dangerous lower order hitter – at No 8, Jordan at No 9, Adil Rashid at 10, you’ve got so deep there.

“They also play fearless cricket so it looks like we’re going to win the World Cup.”

Livingstone made it to the wicket on Tuesday night with England needing 12 out of eight balls and quickly nailed their first ball for six before being caught on the next delivery.

Broad says that the fact that Livingstone felt confident enough to take the start immediately is another reminder of the positive – and successful – state of mind maintained by Morgan, which led England to their first Cup title. of the 50-year-old world in 2019.

The fashion designer added: “When you feel judged as a player, it’s a very courageous thing to go hit your first ball for six years because there’s something in your mind, ‘if I go out here , did I miss my chance, did I drop the team? “

“State of mind [head coach] Chris Silverwood and Morgan set up with the senior players in this group it’s ‘go for it, if you go out nobody is going to judge you, take the step forward, if it doesn’t work you won’t be blamed’.

Playing around the world for different teams has really helped him. I watched him play an end a few years ago and it looked a bit ‘sloggy’, but now he’s clinical with his strike. He probably played in the first team and that’s a difficult thing to do with this English team. He offers so much to England and has done good for the world.

Stuart Broad on Liam Livingstone

“You’re going to win more games than you lose by being positive and Morgan and the England team over the past few years have shown that. There has been a trophy of over 50 – and there can be have a 20 trophy too – giving players mental freedom.

“If Livingstone had been trying to take out one or two you suddenly need five out of three balls and it gets a little nervous, which is how England played for 20 years before Morgan was captain.

“I’ve seen hanging out with these players that they’re hitting the ball so consistently now, so why not go for it? “

Broad also praised Jason Roy’s innings in the deciding game against Pakistan, after the opening goal scored 64 of 36 balls to help England at 92-1 in the 11th in their 155 chase.

Broad believes Roy – who led an opening stand of 67 with Jos Buttler (21 of 22) and hit 12 four-and-six in his stroke – showed brain as well as muscle.

“He didn’t just intimidate his way, he had to adapt to the conditions,” Broad added.

“I think a Roy from five years ago maybe came out pretty early trying to hit a massive shot, but when the ball started to grab the spinners he swept the floor knowing the field outside had picked up speed, showing a brilliant cricket brain.

“His partnership with Buttler was what a partnership should be. Buttler rarely struggles with timing a cricket ball, but he struggled in this game and Roy grabbed the game and said: ‘I feel pretty well here i will help us. “”
