Fan following


The England cricket team has found it difficult to capture the attention of the new generation with not many accolades to show for their performances. They have been getting the attention with a few potent performances after being the finalists of the 2016 T20 World Cup and then winning the all-important ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019 at home. They have brought in superstar cricketers like Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer to highlight their cricket.
