Headache on the cards for England

February 9, 2011 at 12:03 pm 3 comments

England captain Andrew Strauss remains confident the side could still have a great World Cup despite their thrashing by Australia.

After the high of winning the Ashes over the winter, an injury-ravaged England was thrashed by Australia in the seven-day one-day international series, managing only one win and it has had a blow on their cricket world cup betting.

What could pose the biggest headache for Strauss and head coach Andy Flower is the growing injury list that has built up during the trip Down Under.

Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan, Paul Collingwood, Ajmal Shahazad and Chris Tremlett are all currently unfit, and batsman Eoin Morgan was added to the casualty list during the final ODI with a broken finger and anyone who has been following the cricket world cup betting news will be concerned.

The England captain stated the worries about key batsman Morgan were the “most serious injury concern” – with his concerns proven true as the player was ruled out and had to be replaced by Ravi Bopara – and he has faith the rest of the other casualties should clear up in time for the seven-week World Cup on the sub-continent.

Despite all the problems, Strauss reckons England can develop a game plan for success in the World Cup.

“I still feel very confidence we can do well in the World Cup but we need to play in a different manner,” he added.

England’s recent ODI opponents Australia have suffered some pre-World Cup woe of their own as Nathan Hauritz and Mike Hussey are both set to miss the tournament through injury.
