Birmingham: They lost their way in the middle during the group stages, but got their act together and made it to the semi-finals, which makes skipper Eoin Morgan believe that England are back to being the side they were in the last few years as they get ready to take on Australia in the second semi-final here on Thursday.
“We are probably a different team that played four games ago and three games ago,” Eoin Morgan said at the pre-match press conference.
“I think the loss against Sri Lanka hurt us. It was an overhang into the Lord’s game and then when we came here we managed to produce something similar to the cricket we have been playing over the last four years and that was really encouraging. We went to Durham to put in a better performance and improved again and tomorrow we will look to do the same,” he said.
“I think we are obviously thankful that we are still in the tournament and that wasn’t the last two games of the group stage to go through. But it just feels like we are back to the team that we are, yeah.” IANS
