ICC 2019 World Cup: Morgan keeps the pace cards close to his chest in front of the Pakistan clash
NOTTINGHAM (United Kingdom): captain of England Eoin Morgan He played a direct bat when asked about the chances of strengthening his pace attack for the second World Cup match against Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday.
The way in which Pakistan's hitters were undone by a barrage of West Indian bouncers in their first defeat has led to suggestions that England might remember fast bowler Mark Wood.
But given that the hosts and favorites of the World Cup, England began its campaign with a race of 104 South African races in the Oval on Thursday, they can decide to stay with a winning formula instead of bringing Wood to the side of his compatriot Jofra Archer, 90 mph more.
I think there's a good case to play against any of our bowlers, Morgan told reporters at Trent Bridge on Sunday. We will have to adapt to whatever the wicket vomits.
If there is something to exploit, we hope that we select the right team.
But Morgan was well aware of the attraction of an Archer-Wood association.
It is exciting. It's like saying, can you add a Jason Roy 180 to a Jos Buttler 150 of 70 or 80 balls? It could happen, and if it does, it would be amazing.
England has twice set the world record for the highest score in a one-day international at the Nottinghamshire venue, with a record of 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016, before approaching the 500 barrier with 481 for six against the world champion Australia last year.
To have something close to that, you need to play incredibly well, said Morgan. Start with the most basic to enter a possibility and each batter begins and tries to establish an association.
The final series of England before the World Cup saw them whiten Pakistan 4-0. The 1992 World Cup champions suffered their eleventh consecutive loss in a full ODI against Friday against the West Indies.
But having seen his England team beaten by eventual winners of the Pakistan tournament in the semi-finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy in Cardiff, Morgan took nothing for granted.
We are preparing for the best of Pakistan, the Dubliner insisted.
Only two years ago they were the best team in the Champions Trophy, they turned us around, they turned to India. We will be preparing the best we can for your game A.
