Cricket World Cup: Luke Wright may be England’s best choice

Disappointment may come before England in the dictionary, but at World Cups, they seem to be side-by-side. Regardless the sport, England are expected to fail to reach expectations. For Pete’s sake, even in darts, a sport where England routinely have every highly-ranked player not named Raymond van Barneveld, England crashed out to minnows Spain at last year’s inaugural World Cup.

And crash out they will in cricket if they cannot overcome a resurgent West Indies XI in the finest form they’ve been in some years.
