England are the defending champions as they beat Pakistan in the final of the 2022 T20 World Cup. In order to not replicate the poor performance shown in the 2023 ICC World Cup, Mott emphasized their crucial roles in England’s chances of defending their title.

“That’s a certainty. Besides Ben’s outstanding match-winning skills in all aspects, having a seam bowler in the top six provides numerous options for team balance. Every team globally desires someone like that, and they are rare.”

While Stokes may not play ODIs soon, he is likely to be available for the T20 World Cup, given his match-winning abilities. Archer is currently in rehab, and his return to the field may take some time.

Mott highlighted Stokes’ ability to balance the team and serve as a seam bowler in the top six, providing valuable options for team balance. He praised Archer for his impressive skills and mentioned that they would monitor his status closely.

“In terms of Jofra, you’ve just got absolute box-office pace, change of pace. He can bowl any over in the innings. His on the park is massive, everyone would agree with that. We’re going to discuss that in the next couple of days. We’re going to get through this series and the medical team have been meeting in the background about the plan.”
