England prepares to go all out for the Cricket World Cup 2019

Bloghead Icccwc19

With England opening the 12th ICC Cricket World Cup today against South Africa, the fans hardly dare whisper the fact that England enters this tournament as favourites. India is the most supported team in all sport, and they are led by Virat Kohli, a man who has been part of two successful World Cup campaigns and remains preternaturally unruffled under pressure. However, the steely eyed stewardship of Eoin Morgan has blazed England to the top of the rankings, and now all of us are hoping his leadership will see England lift the trophy that has eluded the country for 44 years.

Sticky wicket 

Top level cricket is a world away from the village cricket most enthusiasts play, England coach Trevor Bayliss delivering a team of finely tuned athletes, primed 24/7 to peak physical as well as mental fitness. So if you’re about to face the world’s #1 ranked bowler Jasprit Bumrah, the last thing on your mind is whether your family car has the appropriate level of motor insurance cover. What’s more, such professional cricketers may not realise that their sporting fame translates to a perceived higher risk profile. Generic, simplistic motor insurance quotes are often created regardless of the type or level of sport your client plays, such broad assumptions regularly leading to punitive quotes that simply aren’t cricket. 

Howzat!
