England’s Journey to Winning the Cricket World Cup 2019.
Come and hear Mark Ward, acting director of communications for the England and Wales Cricket Board during the 2019 Cricket World Cup talk in Church House at 7.30 pm about the highs and lows of a monumental summer for English Cricket.
The run to the semi-finals, and indeed final, could not have been more quintessentially English. The team came into the World Cup on a great run of form and hope was lifted to even greater heights with a few high-quality performances early on in the tournament, only to be met with a crash back to traditional English cynicism, when we almost inevitably lost to two tournament underdogs.
From this point on though, they were exceptional; rising to the challenge of what essentially became four consecutive knockout games. Mark was able to watch it all unfold and will talk you through the England team’s extraordinary journey, from the opening match against South Africa to the Final against New Zealand, which has since been described as the greatest cricket match in history.
