Flintoff backs England to achieve World T20 glory

Johannesburg, Mar.11 (ANI): Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff believes his country’s attacking brand of cricket will hand them with victory in this year’s World T20 in India.

Admitting that it would be tough to play in India, the 38-year-old backed his side to go all the way even though conditions in the subcontinent would be hard, Sport24 reported.

Flintoff said that it would be a great if his country seals the T20 pinnacle event, saying that no one was expecting England to clinch the trophy at the expense of the hot favourites like India and Australia.

The former player believes that skipper Eoin Morgan and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler would be two crucial players for England. He said that Morgan was a leader and had got the backing of his players while England could claim victory if Buttler has a good tournament.

England will start their World T20 campaign when they take on West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on March 16. (ANI)
