Former England cricketer, Mike Gatting, sent out a message of encouragement for Team England which is going to participate in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Gatting said, “the World Cup is special, playing for England is special, you’ve got the chance to make us all very very proud, the very best of luck and bring that cup home for us.”

England will enter the tournament as a formidable side after their decent showing in the tri-series in Australia. In their warm up match against West Indies, they cruised to a nine-wicket win indicative of their fine form.

They play the first match of the ICC World Cup 2015 against arch-rivals Australia on February 14 at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
