Chris Jordan: Even if some of their players are unavailable for various reasons, the South Australian Redbacks still have a well-equipped squad. They may have started quite weakly, we expect them to recover in the following games.
Despite losing the previous game, many positive aspects derived from it. A total of 316 in a game shortened to 43 overs, Alex Carey led his lineup brilliantly as he marked an undefeated century. However, the lack of support from other hitters kept South Australia close to where it could have been.
- Chris Jordan said England have become stronger after 2016 heartbreak
- England lost the 2016 T20 World Cup final to the West Indies
- Ben Stokes, defending 19 runs, conceded four sixes in his final over
Jordan conceded just eight runs in the penultimate round of the 2016 final. Leading the West Indies to 19 of the six balls thrown by Stokes, and cautioned himself that he prematurely thought the game was over.
“I’ll never take myself to that place again. “I definitely won’t be thinking that way after bowling the 19th over until it’s fully, fully over.” said the 33-year-old seamer
“We tend to laugh about it now, but we definitely came out stronger for it as a unit.
“I wouldn’t say it haunted us too much. Someone has to come up victorious and for something like that to be done in the last over, you can’t write that.”
Jordan believes England, the top-ranked T20 side, now makes “clearer” decisions in crunch moments. Which he said helped during the victorious 2019 World Cup campaign.
“The team was on autopilot,” he said. “In any situation, you saw the game slow down a little bit and everyone came up with an informed and correct decision.”
Despite the absence of two injured World Cup heroes, Stokes and Jofra Archer England fast pitcher Morgan, Jos Buttler. And the world’s number one Twenty20 hitter Dawid Malan has.
Jordan said the team’s experience is a key asset as England strives to become the first team to win both limited world trophies at the same time.
