Can England Win the World T20?

When the 2016 World Twenty20 begins next year the chances of England progressing out of the group stages will be difficult to predict. However, since the failure at the 2014 One Day International World Cup the English team has seen a resurgence that has a number of experts in online cricket betting feeling quietly confident the Three ions could be an outside bet for the T20 tournament. England do have a history of success in the tournament after winning the 2010 edition with the assistance of a strong pace attack and an in form group of players.

As 2014 came to an end and 2015 started English cricket has rarely been in such a low position in the world standings, particularly after the dismal failure of the World Cup campaign. Head coach Peter Moores paid the ultimate price for the failures of the team and has been replaced by Australian Trevor Bayliss. Bayliss has led a resurgence in the England team that has taken in both the test match and the limited overs games; the distinct improvement in form has come after tough decisions were made by Bayliss and his boss, former England captain Andrew Strauss.

2015 has seen England look to create two distinct squads that are used solely for test matches and a second squad made up of limited overs specialists. The English team was captained by fast bowler and test match specialist Stuart Broad, but he was replaced by Bayliss with limited overs specialist batsman Eoin Morgan who is said to have one of the best cricketing brains in the world. This movement to specialist limited overs players has given the England T20 team a new look and a large amount of confidence they can match the best sides in the world in limited overs cricket.

Betting on cricket means deciding if England have the firepower and leadership to go all the way at the World Twenty20 in 2016. This is a tough question as the format of the T20 event makes it difficult for any team to get out of the group stages, with only two teams from each group moving into the semi-finals. England face a tough challenge with the West Indies, South Africa and Sri Lanka having a much more impressive recent T20 history than the English. By choosing T20 specialists to take the field in India the chance to progress is there for England and a good choice in Online cricket betting is for England to make it out of the group stages and into the semi-finals.

Many of England’s hopes for progressing through the group stages lay at the feet of captain Eoin Morgan, who will have to play to his full potential alongside Joe Root and Ben Stokes. Less well known players like left arm pace bowlers David Willey and Reece Topley will have to hit top form if they are to lead England to another World T20 victory.
