World Cup-winning England right-arm pacer Liam Plunkett has expressed his desire to play cricket for the United States. Plunkett’s wife is American. So he plans to stay in the United States after leaving cricket. But before saying goodbye to cricket, Plunkett wants to play for the United States.
England won the last World Cup on home condition. Plunkett was a member of that team. He took 3 wickets for 42 runs in 10 overs in the breathtaking final against New Zealand.
Plunkett, 35, did not get a chance to play for the country after the World Cup final. Even Plunkett’s name is missing from the list of 55 players that have since been released to practice for cricket by ECB. He has already been dropped from the central contract.
Plunkett, who played for surrey in the county, is seeing the end of his career for England in such a situation. So this fast bowler is dreaming of playing for the United States in the future.
In an interview with the BBC, Plunkett said: “If I had the chance to play in the United States, it would be great. My kids will be American. It would be great to be able to play with them from there. It would be a great honor to be able to play cricket in the United States after England. ‘
