The Englishmen,’The Father of the Cricket” have named out England cricket team squad for the most excited and awaited upcoming ICC World T20 2016 also called T20 World cup 2016 which to be held in India from 8th March to 3 April. England team is currently positioned at 8th number in ICC T20 ranking table and is playing in Group 1 along with South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and a team which will come after winning qualifier round in the world T20 2016 tournament.
Though the team may not be considered as one of the favorite for this season but the champions of 2010 event are capable of surprising everyone in this most unpredictable and short version of the cricket.
The team will be led by Eoin Morgan as captain. The team will be benefited by the huge experience of the coach Mahela Jayawardene who is well aware of the playing conditions of Indian pitches. The England team squad will be introducing one uncapped player, Hampshire who impressed selectors in England Lions vs Pakistan A series.
The selected players is a team which full of almost all-rounders and does not look like one man dependent. The team is very confident and motivated by winning Ashes series against Australia. The main weakness of the England is lack in consistency especially in foreign pitches.
