ECB Announced a Strong England T20 World Cup 2022 Squad
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced the squad for the T20 World Cup 2022; Jason Roy was cut from the team for the last T20 WC. Ben Stokes, Mark Wood, and Chris Woakes, however, have joined the team. In the last year, these three cricketers have not participated in any T20 matches. Nevertheless, the ECB keeps them on the team.
In Australia, Jos Buttler will captain the squad as Eoin Morgan says farewell to international cricket. At the World Cup, all-rounder Moeen Ali will act as his assistant. Jason Roy was cut from the most recent T20 World Cup squad. This cricketer’s popularity has declined in recent years. Therefore, he was dismissed from the team by the ECB. Phil Salt, an opener, has been called up as his substitute.
Ben Stokes did not participate in the last World T20 Cup. Even after the 2021 trip to India, he never played T20 again. Depression kept him from playing cricket. A few days ago, the white-ball ODI version was retired.
Meanwhile, Mark Wood has missed nearly six months of international cricket owing to injuries. He was unable to return to play after healing from his injuries. The England team will accompany him to the World Cup. Also, he has been absent from the T20 squad for nearly a year.
England will travel Pakistan before to the T20 World Cup. Almost every member of the World Cup squad is on that tour with England. Due to injury, Chris Jordan and Liam Livingstone will be unable to play. They will compete in the World Cup immediately.
Three cricketers will accompany the England squad to Australia as traveling reserves. Liam Dawson, Richard Gleeson, and Tymal Mills are their names. Alex Hales has been disregarded despite the fact that everyone who has performed well has a chance to return to the team. Despite the change in captain, this starting quarterback is not on the team.
