Both the teams have not managed to win a single trophy in the entire World Cup tournament. England over the years through its exceptional game of cricket has gained its favourites tag in the tournament. On the other hand, the Proteas will be keen on to remove its chokers tag. Let’s have a look at the key players from England who will prove to be crucial in the tournament.

1.      Eoin Morgan- England’s skipper will play a major role in their World Cup triumph. After recovering from his injury, England will be relieved to have the skipper back in action. With a batting average of 39.64, Morgan will look forward to lead the batting side.

2.      Jos Buttler- With an average of 41.54 and an astonishing strike rate of 119.57 in ODIs, this wicket-keeper and batsman will play a crucial role in England’s batting line-up. In the first warm-up match against Australia, Buttler managed to score a decent 52 despite losing the match by 12 runs.

3.      Adil Rashid- With an economy of just 4.16 in the warm-up match against South Africa, Rashid proved to be vital for the team. This leg spinner who has 132 wickets in his 88 ODI matches will play a crucial role in this tournament that is expected to highly be dominated by the batsmen in the team. In a tournament where all the teams will look forward to break the 500-run mark, Adil Rashid will try to keep the economy in check and England can highly rely on him.
