Expat Sport analyses the options available to England’s opposition if they hope to defeat them in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 England and Wales.

All the pre tournament talk is of England being very strong favourites on home turf along with such a formidable, aggressive team. And on paper it would be hard to argue with that opinion. They have won seventeen of their last 24 matches, many of those defeats coming in dead rubbers after completing series victories, as was the case in their most recent loss against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
