Hopefully England Can Win ICC Champions Trophy, Says Moeen Ali

The ICC Champions Trophy is set to begin from June 1 where the last edition’s runners-up England will take on Mashrafe Mortaza’s side Bangladesh in London. The Trevor Bayliss side deserve to go into the championship with the tag of favourites, all-rounder Moeen Ali said while interacting with press.

 

“The team we have at the moment, we deserve that tag,” Moeen told the British media. “Playing at home is going to make a massive difference and hopefully we can win the trophy,”added Ali.

 

“We have lost a couple of finals recently but over the last couple of years we have played very well in preparation for this trophy,” the 29-year-old said.

 

“Hopefully if we get to the final we can overcome the final step and win it. We have gained experience from the T20 World Cup so it will definitely help us.”

 

The 29-year-old cricketer also talked about the Eoin Morgan’s leadership and how the team’s mind set has changed. The three lions recently won a 2-match ODI series versus Ireland after thumping them 2-0.

 

“The mindset of the players has changed,” Moeen said “He wants us to play without fear and to hit the lights out.”
