England has played some of its worst matches of this World Cup,”. Nasser Hussain, a former cricket player for England, criticized Jos Buttler’s team for their appalling performance at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 in India.

The tournament’s defending champions, who were viewed as favorites to win their 50-over crown, took a step toward elimination on Thursday when they lost to Sri Lanka, the victors from 1996 in Bangalore. They had lost their last four games overall and their last three in a row going into the event.

With 25 overs remaining and two wickets down, Sri Lanka managed to chase down the mark when Jos Buttler-led England was bowled out for 156. Nasser Hussain voiced his disappointment at the team’s poor showing in the competition.

“I have never seen England play so poorly back-to-back,” he said. They have returned to using their all-round players and have altered their strategy. They opted to bat first and altered the toss. Thus, it demonstrates how crucial tactics, teamwork, and toss strategy are in sports, but having players at the top of their game especially during a World Cup is the most crucial factor in all sports, including cricket.

The former captain went on to say that the team disintegrated as a whole and that their form had abandoned them.

“In contrast, look at South Africa’s batting lineup everyone is in fine form. Look at India’s batting lineup Rahit, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Shubman Gill all of them are in excellent form,” he continued.

He claimed that the present setup has been a shame because the team plays fewer One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and more Twenty-Over and 100-Ball cricket.

How much domestic 50-over cricket has Virat Kohli played? Heinrich Klaasen, or anybody else present? Instead of playing 50-over domestic cricket, they watch and learn from T20 teams worldwide. Playing for T20 franchises all around the world is what has built this excellent side over the past six years. What a pathetic justification.
