England face TORRID time Down Under, our experts say

  England face TORRID time Down Under, our experts say England's winter touring programme began this week as they headed off to the United Arab Emirates for the Twenty20 World Cup, with the big one - the Ashes - following hot on its heels.Sportsmail’s Nasser Hussain, David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd, Lawrence Booth and Richard Gibson are joined by former England batsman Mark Butcher as they consider six crucial questions for the next few months and beyond.

Both Arum and Fury's UK promoter Frank Warren have implored Joshua to step aside and allow the current heavyweight champions to fight for all of the belts, a proposal that was emphatically shot down by Hearn.

MARK WOOD believes Tymal Mills can stir up the same highoctane pace battle with him that Jofra Archer did in 2019 to fire England to World Cup glory. Only this time batsmen will get hit by the right from Wood and the left from Mills – via the two different angles of attack. Between them they sent down half a dozen of the quickest deliveries in the 50-over event. Mills now has a job to do to break into the T20 side but his fellow paceman is pushing for the two of them to play together. “It worked for me and Jofra ,” said Wood. “So, me and T might have to keep it going.

The first thing to say is England remain a fabulous Twenty20side and have a very strong chance of completing a white-ball World Cup double here in the next month.

But there are issues they must address in their two warm-up games for this tournament, starting against India today, because they are in a slightly different place than they were ahead of what became their 50-over WorldCup-winning campaign in 2019.

The late inclusion of Jofra Archer in that squad was a huge factor for England as we saw throughout the tournament, particularly in the final, and his absence is a massive blow.

Wood: Mills and I can 'bring some fire' to World T20

  Wood: Mills and I can 'bring some fire' to World T20 Mark Wood believes he can thrive alongside Tymal Mills at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup and plans a repeat of his speed gun rivalry with Jofra Archer. Wood was spurred on to bowl faster by Archer's presence as England claimed an historic 50-over World Cup title two years ago, coming out on top of the duel by sending down a 95.7mph delivery in the final against New Zealand. Mark Wood has taken 26 wickets for England in 17 T20 appearances, at an average of 20.

NASSER HUSSAIN : Joe Root's tactics to Steve Smith were akin to bodyline and England MUST look after Jofra Archer . Jofra Archer was superb for England in the second Ashes Test with Australia. The only mystery about the extraordinary Test debut of Jofra Archer is that he has not taken his wickets in first-class cricket before now even more cheaply than 23. I’m surprised it’s not more like 15 judging by the way he bowled at Lord’s. Archer was absolutely unbelievable in this drawn second Ashes Test.

‘He was driving about delivering parcels for Amazon not that long ago and now he’s out here winning the man of the match against Bangladesh. ‘It was an incredible day for Chris but it wasn’t a surprise for us. We knew he had the ability to do that as he’s shown some exciting skills for us on this tour.

England have had to learn to live without Archer in all formats but it’s most keenly felt in T20cricket because he is one of the best in the world, whether it be wicket-taking with the new ball in his bowling at the death or with his economy rate.

Eoin Morgan has had time to work on replacing a man who is effectively two bowlers in one but today’s game and Wednesday’s warm-up against New Zealand give him the chance to focus especially on the death bowling issues that have not yet been fully resolved.

Steve Bruce has called for clarity on his future after admitting Newcastle United are in a relegation battle following their 3-2 defeat by Spurs. On a day that was supposed to be a celebration of the club’s new Saudi-led ownership, it ended with supporters turning on the head coach and again calling for him to go.

The career of Tymal Mills has been winding and unique. Now he might finally be about to get the moment he deserves, writes Ben Gardner. “It was the time to let them have a few.” In 2013, England rocked up to Chelmsford for the chance to have a gentle hit ahead of that summer’s Ashes, and came face to Tymal Mills , then 20 years old but comfortably the quickest bowler on either side, tore in and almost ended Graeme Swann’s summer, striking him flush on the forearm, with Tim Bresnan copping similar treatment. That winter, he joined up with the England squad in Australia to offer some Mitchell

That is where Tymal Mills comes in as one of the best death bowlers in world franchise cricket and that makes him a key figure, because even someone with the experience of Chris Jordan hasn’t quite got it right in recent times.

It is an aspect of T20cricket England have to master because, as we saw in the last World Cup final five years ago, they can get90 per cent of their game spot on and then lose it by conceding four sixes in the last over.

England went through a long period when they were not taking wickets with the new ball, but Morgan has addressed that by using Mark Wood and even Adil Rashid effectively up front.

He has also used Sam Curran but he is injured, too, so the captain might want to have a look at Chris Woakes and David Willey with the new ball in these warmups.

David Willey is playing every England game as if it’s his last

  David Willey is playing every England game as if it’s his last Willey was left out of England’s 2019 World Cup-winning team but is back in the fray for this year’s T20 World Cup.While he was a regular in the four-year cycle leading up to that 50-over tournament on home soil, Willey was deemed surplus to requirements following Jofra Archer’s breakneck emergence on to the international scene.

NASSER HUSSAIN IN PORT ELIZABETH: There should be no doubt Jofra Archer is the best man to replace Jimmy Anderson in the third Test here and must be given every chance to prove himself. If Jofra Archer is not fit then I can understand England picking Mark Wood. But if Archer says he is confident then England have to put their faith in him. The England bowler has three five-wicket hauls in his first seven Test matches. That is the same amount Andrew Flintoff managed in his whole England career.

He has expressed his disdain for "Infectious Educators" who promote Critical Race Theory, and is confident that the "vaccine" will put an end to "Human Cancer Upon the Earth." So, I asked Mylo, "How can the "vaccinated" know with certainty how long they have to live once they have been jabbed?" He presented me with the information, called the "End of Cycle Formula." He explained how easy it is to calculate.

Batting-wise, the decisions Morgan has to make revolve around Dawid Malan, who remains the No1 ranked batsman in world T20 cricket.

His stats are incredibly good but they also tell you he takes time and uses up deliveries in the powerplay and then catches up.

That is fine in most places around the world but on the slow and used pitches of the United Arab Emirates, the powerplay is absolutely vital because it gets harder and harder to catch up.

I would give Malan first dibs at No 3 because he’s earned it but there are other options.

Chennai SuperKings used Moeen Ali differently to England in this year's IPL and Morgan would have seen firsthand in the final how effective he can be higher up the order.

England at T20 World Cup: Reasons for optimism and concern

  England at T20 World Cup: Reasons for optimism and concern As England prepare to begin their T20 World Cup campaign, we look at the reasons for optimism, as well as the issues causing a little concern… Morgan form on the floorIt is not a great sign when the captain has to talk about a willingness to drop himself if required ahead of the start of a major tournament, but, such is Morgan's form with the bat, it was inevitable that he would be asked the question.

Moeen has been out of ­England’s side and when he has played it has been lower down the order, but the pitches will turn here and both the bowling of spin and playing of it will be paramount,which makes him a potentially important figure.

As too will be Liam Livingstone,who last summer was the man who lifted England to those above-par scores.

His emergence as their best finisher has been magnificent and after a quiet IPL he must now show he can still smash it on these pitches.

Then there is the form of the captain himself. Morgan’s leadership, as we saw withKolkata Knight Riders in theIPL, is as good as ever and in big tournaments England would not want anybody else in charge. The players hang on his every word.

But he has been very short of runs and he will want to put that right against India or NewZealand.

We have to remember Morgan is unique and has gone through spells like this. Then it usually just takes one good innings,everything clicks and he doesn’t look back. England want him to get on another positive streak as soon as possible.

That, particularly in the absence of another player of experience in Ben Stokes, would be a very important part of completing the England World Cup jigsaw.

It is good England are playing two teams of quality from the other group in India and New Zealand ahead of Saturday’s tournament opener against West Indies, because they need to be properly tested on the pitches they will find here.

England remain a team full of power but they showed in the50-over World Cup they can adapt to slower surfaces and in lowscoring games. Now they have todo the same over the shorter distance. Then they can complete that unique World Cup double.
