Joe Root says he would beat England’s failing XI “man for man… any day” with the Australians ahead of their crucial Cricket World Cup match on Saturday evening.

England are at the bottom of the ladder with just one win from five matches, while Australia are in third place and have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals.

Should Australia beat the defending champions in Ahmedabad on Saturday evening, England’s World Cup defense will officially be over.

“Man for man I would take this team over the Australians any day,” former skipper Root told the BBC.

“We may not have played as well as we could, but when we play our best stuff, the best teams struggle to compete with us.

“We have to remember that and take that into the coming days, both in physical training and mentally, to make sure we are in that frame of mind to take on Australia, and that’s what it’s all about for us now .”
