The first side to hold both the ODI and T20I World Cup titles was England. To win the 2019 ODI World Cup at home, they defeated New Zealand. They defeated Pakistan two nights ago to capture their second T20 World Cup championship. The question of whether they are the greatest white-ball team the gentleman’s game has ever seen has been raised by their dominance in limited-overs cricket. There are other additional grounds in their favour in addition to their recent double World Cup victory. Since the disastrous 2015 ODI World Cup, England’s white-ball squad has undergone a radical transformation. The immediate outcome was their march to the 2016 T20 World Cup final in India, where they were defeated by eventual winners West Indies in a nail-biting last-over match.

England advanced to the final in three of the past five ICC white-ball cricket competitions, winning two of them. They were also routinely ranked among the top three in ODI and T20I rankings in between all of this, and their all-out attacking approach was primarily responsible for revolutionising white-ball cricket.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan predicted that the Jos Buttler-led squad would be the clear favourites to win the ODI World Cup in India in 2023 based on all these facts. The former batter went so far as to call retaining host India as the favourite for next year’s championship event “total nonsense.” He recommended India “swallow their pride and follow England.”

“Winning the 50-over World Cup in India the following year is the next big ticket. They have strong spin options, thus they must also be considered favourites for that competition. India will be considered the tournament’s early favourite on home turf. absolute nonsense For a few more years to come, England will be the team to beat without a doubt, according to Vaughan’s article in the Daily Telegraph.

Notably, India prevailed in the 2011 ODI World Cup, which was held on their soil for the first time. But they haven’t won a World Cup since then. When MS Dhoni-led them to the Champions Trophy victory in 2013, it was their last time winning an ICC trophy.

For once, English cricket has a leading team that the rest of the world should follow. This group of England white ball players is extraordinary.
