England have had a history of fielding players not born in the country.Eoin Morgan, the England captain, was born in Ireland and made his international debut for Ireland. Jofra Archer came to England from the Caribbean just a few years before and he found his way into the England World Cup squad.Sunil Gavaskar, not known to hold himself back from expressing his opinions, branded England ‘Rest of the World’ side and said he expected them to play India in the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.”England have played 6 to 7 cricketers. Their captain is Irish… Jofra Archer came from the West Indies a few years ago,” Gavaskar said.Sunil Gavaskar, meanwhile, said the only worry for India is their 5th bowling option but believed the currently out-of-form openers will be switched off by the time India took the field for their first World Cup 2019 opener against South Africa on June 5.”The only worry is the 5th bowler. 4 bowlers are outstanding but the 5th bowling option is a bit of a cause for concern. The openers will be switched on,” Gavaskar said.Also Read | Sourav Ganguly changed India into a ruthless ODI team, says Nasser HussainAlso Read | 1985 India team fitter than Virat Kohli’s side: Sunil Gavaskar at Salaam Cricket 2019For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
