For them, Thursday’s World Cup semi-final against Australia is “the biggest sport of my career” and it can prove to be “too big for English cricket”. And when Plunkett has great respect for the Australian side, he is referred to as “great team” as a “great team”, he feels that England’s current side offers strong opposition away from previous World Cup campaigns. .

I do not think I will play in the second World Cup, so personally I think it is the biggest game of my career. is. ”
Although Australia defeated England by 64 runs at the group stage of the tournament, but Plunkett – who was not selected for that match – they feel that this result came at a time when the team first resided on disappointing results, Went a little bit in our shell “. . Despite a much better performance against India and New Zealand, he still feels there is more to come from the side of the team.

But after being beat by Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Instead of forgetting about it and moving forward, a little bit, we can improve it by playing our positive brand of cricket.
