Vince could not prove himself in international cricket

James Vince has been scoring runs continuously for the last two years. Especially his performance in T20 cricket has been amazing. However, despite this, he is not able to make a permanent place in the English T20 team. By the way, Vince has got a lot of opportunities before. This player has played 17 T20 Internationals and he has been able to score only 463 runs at an average of 27.23. His strike rate is less than 130. In terms of T20 cricket, these figures are nothing special. At the same time, in Test cricket too, this player has been able to score runs in 13 matches at an average of less than 25. Vince averages 30 in ODIs, with a century to his name. Well, now Vince is in a good rhythm. If he performs well in The Hundred, then he can stake a claim for a place in England’s squad in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
