Root believes WC win could boost Ashes campaign

ICC-Cricket, London

England batsman Joe Root believes that their historic World Cup win, their first in 44 years of the tournament, could serve as a confidence-booster ahead of the upcoming Ashes series that starts on 1 August.

Root, England’s highest run-getter in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, said that his side ‘couldn’t be in a better place’, after lifting the trophy, following the tied final against New Zealand at Lord’s.

“It’s always so special. The atmosphere, the way it builds up and the way the guys get excited about it, it's like no other series in Test cricket,” Root said on the day after the triumph.

England has been a commanding one-day side over the last few years, having won 35 of their 51 ODIs since the end of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. They are also No.1 on the MRF ICC ODI Team Rankings.

“It’s what we set out to do two or three years ago, and we’re halfway there,” Root said. “Having achieved what we’ve achieved here, there will be talk about us going one step better and picking ourselves up off the back of it.”

England faced Australia in the second semi-final on 11 July, and comprehensively beat them, by eight wickets. Root believes that the win at Edgbaston would further bolster their chances ahead of the opening Test at the same venue.
