Ebony Rainford Brent, the former England women's cricketer believes that Mark Wood could possibly bring X-factor to England Men's team in the World Cup. The cricketer believes that his pace will bring something fresh to the team.
"Some of the guys usually operate in the low 80s (mph) and therefore Wood could be useful."
Wood has breathed new life into England's bowling unit in both the Test and ODI format, he was sensational in blowing the Windies away with his out-and-out pace in the recently concluded series.
"This is the best chance England has ever had to win the World Cup," ICC quoted Brent as saying.
"Seeing the turnaround in this team over the past few years or so has been amazing."
"It is a young and exciting side which is even better and let us face it is the best ODI side we have ever had," she added.
