2 players who made England the champion in 2019, they became the villains in the World Cup 2023

ODI World Cup 2023. In the eyes of England, the 2023 World Cup is going through a very bad phase. Last year’s winners have won just one of their opening six matches, while losing five. The England team is almost out of the race for the semi-finals. Before the start of the tournament, he was considered a strong contender for the title, but when the tournament started, everyone was surprised by his performance. No one can believe that this is the same team that won the trophy last time by defeating big teams.

Batting of Stokes and Butler in World Cup 2019:
England won the 2019 World Cup thanks to the brilliant bowling of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes. Stokes was the hero of the match for his team. He played a total of 11 matches for the team during the competition. He scored 465 runs at an average of 66.42. During this period his strike rate was 93.18. He also shone with the ball during the match. He took seven wickets in the tournament at an average of 35.14.

His contribution in the final cannot be forgotten. He played an important role in his team winning the trophy by playing good innings in difficult conditions against New Zealand. Apart from this, Butler’s bat also played well in the last tournament. He scored 312 runs in 11 matches at an average of 35.

Stokes and Butler could not live up to expectations in 2023:
The England cricket team was expecting their good performance in the current tournament too, but both these players have flopped miserably. The team had so much hope from Stokes that he was requested to return from retirement. He has played a total of three matches for his team in the World Cup 2023. He scored only 48 runs. He managed to score five runs against South Africa. Against Sri Lanka, he contributed 43 runs, while against India, he was bowled out without opening his account.

Not only Ben Stokes, captain Jos Buttler has also failed miserably in the 2023 World Cup. He has played a total of six matches for his team in the ongoing tournament. He has scored 105 runs at an average of 17.50. His highest score in an innings was 43. Cricket lovers are quite disappointed with the poor performance of Stokes and Butler.
