England’s batters must perform, says Thorpe

England’s limited over batting coach Graham Thorpe has called for the rest of the players in the side to pull up their performance after the side is dealing with a few injury issues. While Joe Root has been ruled out of the ICC World T20 as well, Stuart Broad and Eoin Morgan are dealing with knee injuries as well. Thorpe hoped that the batsmen will face the spinners well in the ICC World T20.

“We obviously need to improve, at the top in the first six overs, with the bat. We’ve got four games left [before the start of the World Twenty20], and I don’t think we’re 100% sure on the line-up. So we’re looking for performances from the guys, to put their hand up and say ‘Look, it’s going to be me’,” Thorpe was quoted as saying by the official video released by ECB.

Playing spin for English players is not straightforward. We don’t play heaps of spin consistently throughout the year. We mustn’t fret about it. We must just improve. We have to identify those players who are capable of going to Bangladesh and actually having a gameplan, and the skill to be able to perform — know where they can score their boundaries and put competitive scores on the board in Bangladesh,” he added.
