England All Rounder Ben Stokes Sure that England Can Win ICC ODI World Cup Title in India

England All Rounder Ben Stokes Sure that England Can Win ICC ODI World Cup Title in India: The Jos Buttler-led team has an excellent chance of winning its championship at the ODI World Cup in 2023, said to top England all-rounder Ben Stokes. They are a perfect team with experience playing in games under pressure, according to Ben Stokes.

The England Team is now the most dominant team in white-ball cricket. In ODIs and T20Is, the Three Lions currently hold the title of world champions. After the West Indies and Australia, they have a the potential to become the third team that can win the ODI World Cup.

“I don’t think it’s arrogance to say we’re a very good team. We’re in the mix. And what we now have in our favour, I think, is experience of huge games – an edge against sides who don’t play as many,” Stokes told The Guardian.

“I know franchise T20 cricket means a lot more players have been exposed to those situations; it’s great for that. But it doesn’t come close to wearing your country’s shirt, billions watching, knowing if you lose, you’re out,” he added.

“So much time has passed but whenever I rock up to Lord’s I remember that day,” he further added.

“Weirdly, I always think back to the six Jimmy Neesham hit during the super over. I was just smiling out there, thinking ‘100 overs, dead level, down to the wire, all the mad things that have happened, what more can this game throw at us?’ It was ridiculous.”

“That last ball of the match, the run out, everyone charging on to the field … yeah, it was pretty cool. People think I collapsed with emotion but in fact I just slipped. I thought I managed to style it out quite well.”
