Broad expecting T20 success

Veteran paceman Stuart Broad believes England's brand of "fearless cricket" will see them lift the T20 World Cup later this year.

Eoin Morgan's 50-over world champions are 4.33 to win the T20 equivalent in the UAE and Oman later this year, with India at 3.50 seen as their biggest rivals for the trophy.

England secured a 2-1 T20 series win over Pakistan with a three-wicket victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, in what proved to be a highly entertaining and closely-fought match-up.

It just feels like we are going to win the World Cup.

The series success has been achieved despite England resting a number of their stars, such as Ben Stokes, which has given players previously on the periphery of Morgan's squad the chance to shine.

Liam Livingstone was one of those players and he was named player of the series for his destructive performances with the bat, which included a spectacular 42-ball century in defeat at Trent Bridge last week.

And Broad thinks the strength in depth which has emerged over the last month bodes extremely well for England's chances of becoming world champions in both formats.

He told Sky Sports: "I think we will win the World Cup. We have got so many bases covered. It's all looking pretty rosy.

"If suddenly you are getting Livingstone batting at No 7 (when Stokes returns), Sam Curran - who swings the white ball and is a dangerous lower-order hitter - at No 8, Chris Jordan at No 9, Adil Rashid at 10, you have got so much depth there.

"They play fearless cricket as well, so it just feels like we are going to win the World Cup."
