It took 44 years for the England team to fulfill their dream of winning the World Cup. Meanwhile, the 11th World Cup was decided by the British. England reached the final in 1979, 1987, 1992, but no English captain had the chance to kiss the World Cup trophy, but the dream of cricket-born Cricket-born England was fulfilled, even from a team whose captain, the main all-rounder, the main opener, even the main fast bowler were of foreign origin.
For your information, England team captain Ioan Morgan is not born in this country. He was born in Ireland. He even played international cricket for Ireland before playing for England. On August 5, 2006, Morgan played his first ODI against Scotland for Ireland. On May 24, 2009, he played his first ODI for England at Bristol against the West Indies. Here he scored an unbeaten two runs. Then they didn't look back. After England were out in the first round at the 2015 World Cup, the selectors handed Morgan the captaincy and now he has completed England's unfinished title.
South Africa's Jason Roy is the key to the England World Cup title today. Roy was injured in the league round and it was difficult for England to reach the semi-finals. Roy then made a comeback to give the team a victory against India, New Zealand. The team's main opener Roy was born in Durban, South Africa, but after his parents settled in England, he made his debut in 2015 in ODIs for England.
It would not have been Ben Stokes' thought to have defeated his own country by Stokes. That he will win the World Cup for England and beat the country where he was born. The 28-year-old Stokes was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. His parents had moved from New Zealand to England, but now both of them are living in New Zealand, but Stokes grew up in England and started cricket right here. Stokes played his first ODI against Ireland on August 25, 2011.
With players of Pakistani origin
Pakistan's dream of winning the World Cup was unfulfilled, but two England players who belonged to this country did it. Adil Rashid was born in Yorkshire, England, but his father is from Pakistan. Similar is the story of Moeen Ali. Moeen's grandfather was from Mirpur district of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. He had moved to England. Moeen's father was a taxi driver while the mother was a nurse.
Archer is also of not even England
England team's main fast bowler Jofra Archer's dream of playing the World Cup came very close. Archer, who bowled for his team in super overs, is mainly from the Caribbean country Barbados. He had come to England with the dream of cricket. He was selected in sussex's squad against Pakistan in 2016 and it was his first first-class match. He was consistently performing well in the county, but according to the rule he had to complete five years in England only if he could be selected to the England national team. A few months before the Start of the World Cup, Archer's deadline was met and he was selected to the World Cup squad. Luck also went with him that he became part of the world-winning team only when he was selected for the first time.
