England, the reigning champions, are currently facing a severe threat of elimination in the ODI World Cup. In their five matches played so far, they have suffered defeat in four. To remain in contention, England must win all their remaining matches. Their next opponent is the formidable Indian team, which has remained unbeaten throughout the World Cup. Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has expressed his skepticism regarding England’s ability to overcome India.In the World Cup, England has encountered a series of struggles. In three of their matches, they were bowled out entirely. In two of these instances, England’s entire team failed to reach the 200-run mark. Their campaign began with a loss to New Zealand, and they managed to secure a lone victory against Bangladesh.
Harbhajan Singh pointed out the uncharacteristically poor form of Jos Buttler, expressing that he has never witnessed the star batsman perform so poorly. Even Ben Stokes, who had recently returned to the team, failed to make a significant impact. England’s players have been hitting boundaries but seem to neglect the importance of taking singles. The renowned Indian spin legend also emphasized that England’s current performance is far from what is expected of world champions.
