Nasser Hussain says “Not so much for this game but for the challenges they may face ahead” in T20 World Cup. Hussain hailed Eoin Morgan for his tactics. Also, the runs against Sri Lanka on Monday. Hussain heaped praise on England’s adaptability. As they continued their dominance in the ongoing T20 World Cup. However, he acknowledged that there would be tougher battles ahead. Despite Morgan’s captaincy having helped England maintain their ruthlessness. The player found form with the bat on Monday. He played an invaluable knock of 40, adding 112 off 78 with Jos Buttler following a top-order collapse. And then proved to be a game-changing partnership.
Hussain emphasized the importance of England’s victory. It happened after they lost the toss and were forced to bat first. Incorporating the dew component as well. Hussain stated that England needed to adjust to the circumstances as well as the variety of bowling options available. Morgan’s presence was advantageous.
“Not so much for this game but for the challenges they may face ahead, I was pleased as an England “fan”, if you like, that they had lost that toss because they were going to have to do it a different way at some stage,” Nasser Hussain said.
“They’re going to have to get used to dew; they’re going to have to get used to defending a target. They lost a bowler and luckily, they’ve got six bowlers that all give them something. (Liam) Livingstone has now bowled out twice in the last two games, so he is a proper sixth bowler,” Hussain said.
Lastly, England defended 163 in Sharjah against Sri Lanka. It became only the third team in the tournament to win after batting first. With dew in Sharjah and Dubai, teams batting second. They have had a significant advantage. Hussain felt that Monday’s outcome was noteworthy. Then as a shrewd tactician like Morgan proved that toss. It is not an overriding factor in deciding games
