England has won their second 20-20 World Cup 2022 title, beating Pakistan by five wickets in the final at the MCG. On the other hand, before India could have even the slightest of opportunities to win their second, they were beaten by the Three Lions in the semis. While England cricket is rejoicing in the victory, the India cricket fraternity is fretting over how to come back from the loss and do better next time.
Meanwhile, former England skipper Michael Vaughan has advised Indian Cricket to ‘swallow their pride’ and take some inspiration from his national side. He said that the English players have the ‘right mentality’ to win the knockout games. The 2005 Ashes-winning skipper also pointed out the hardship of the team before winning the 2019 ODI and 2022 20-20 World Cups.
“England should be winning World Cups because they have the best squad but we often see the best teams not living up to their billing. In the 2019 World Cup final, England had the rub of the green and they did this time as well. But they deserve that luck because they have done things right for so long by committing to a style. England never panic. In 2019 they lost games early in the tournament to Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Here they lost to Ireland. It could have been all over both times. But they have this mentality of when it matters they know how to win. They have good game players,” Vaughan wrote in his column in The Telegraph.
England is setting the trend for World Cricket: Michael Vaughan
The Yorkshire player added that the current group of England players are showing the world how to win World Cups.
“This group of England white ball players is extraordinary and for once English cricket has a trendsetting team the rest of the world should emulate. How are England going about their business? What do they do? If I was running Indian cricket, I would swallow my pride and look at England for inspiration,” he added.
