England Cricket World Cup Squad - England Betting Odds

England have struggled big time in recent Cricket World Cups but they go to the sub-continent in 2011 with a real chance of having a good run, they have slowly improved as a One Day team over the past two years and should be watched closely. England have been brimming with confidence since winning the World T20 Cup in the West Indies and will hope to replicate that success in the 50 Over format of the game.

England's improvement is reflected in the latest Cricket World Cup Odds with the bookmakers feeling they have a real chance of progressing at least to the latter stages of the tournament. Andrews Strauss and Andy Flower have worked hard to improve their squad and they seem to be settling on a nucleus of top players, and in Graeme Swann they have a world class spinner who will be vital during this tournament. England will be hoping that Kevin Pietersen is back to his best for the World Cup, the star batsman is capable of being a match winner but over the past year he has struggled to find his best form.

Perhaps the key man in the batting order for England is the brilliant Eoin Morgan who has been a revelation since getting his place in the team, the little left hander plays in a positive manner and has proven to be just the player to push the team forward. Morgan will be a key man for England on the sub-continent as he is a good player of spin and will be looking to manipulate the ball with nudges and nurdles throughout his time at the crease.

England have been in Australia in the build up to the World Cup and are on a high following their comprehensive Ashes win, it will give the squad a nice tonic as they prepare to head to India for the World Cup with seven ODI's against the Aussies. A good performance in those games against a tough Aussie side will surely boost their confidence and see the bookmakers slash their outright Cricket World Cup Odds.
