There is one change in England team management for T20 World Cup today’s Super 8 match against USA on 23 June 2013 at Kensington Oval Bridgetown Barbados. It is especially noteworthy that the current defending champions have never been in a worse position after having lost the match against the South African team and need to win this last match in Super 8 phase to stay alive in the semis race.

In the lead up to this crucial match, England excluded their premier fast bowler Mark Wood for seam bowling all-rounder T20 World Cup Chris Jordan. Wood was ordinary in the ongoing tournament where he took only three wickets from five innings at an average of 37. 66 and utilisation of 8. 69.

T20 World Cup In the tournament, Wood had only one outstanding display when he destroyed Oman with the spell of 3/12 in three overs that dampened the opposition’s spirit and restricted them to a meagre 47. Before that, the 34-year-old bowled a pathetic spell of 32 runs in three overs in that tense match against Australia and bowled 22 runs in two overs in the last match against South Africa.

Speaking of T20 WC 2024, Chris Jordan was successful in performing brilliantly for his team.

Therefore, the speedster was replaced by Jordan who has participated three games in the competition. He is a 35-year-old bowler who has taken 3 wickets in 3 innings in the present tournament with an average of 29 and an economy rate of 10. 87.

The right-handed batting have used this bat to score only 1* (3) in the only inning he faced in this tournament against Australia. The idea of introducing Jordan in the team would be to have an extra batsman on a flat wicket in Barbados possibly.

However, USA remained unchanged for the match and will be fielding the same playing eleven seen in their previous game against West Indies. As a team that depended on bowling first, England will have to ensure they dismiss USA for as little as possible, and make a fast chase in order to increase the team’s net run rate, which currently stands at +0. 412 and that will surpass West Indies’ net run-rate of +1. 814.
