The core of England’s historical past making ODI side is tranquil together and having a examine to change into the first ever dual-format champions, an ambition that is finally coming shut satisfactory to ponder openly.
“There may be a case for not having a examine too far ahead, but we’re going to be going to the World Cup attempting to decide out and it’d be a fantastic achievement,” he said.
“I heard a colleague say the word ‘legacy’ the various day and it’d be great as a community to examine back after your career and concentrate on about the things you achieved.
