Inspirational Stars Feature – Part 2


PlaySport delivers half term childcare in Bracknell for children aged 5+ as part of our Fun Weeks.


We’re continuing with our Inspirational Stars feature today with another national team who experienced World Cup success on home soil.


On a warm summers day last July, millions of people were glued to the television as the England national cricket team defeated New Zealand in one of the most dramatic sporting finals ever. Similar to the football team of ’66, our 2019 cricket team were under the same pressure to win a home-based tournament but this time, they were one of the pre-tournament favourites.


As the final went into a super over, each player possessed the mental strength and character needed in big sporting moments to win, but the everlasting memories of this game will ensure that children understand the excitement that cricket brings.


This match inspired children in playgrounds and local parks up and down the country to pick up a bat and ball for the first time, and that’s why this team are an inspiration.


The 2019 England cricket team was lead by captain Eoin Morgan and included Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood 🏏️
