Plunkett wants to bowl quick at World T20

England

Liam Plunkett wants to bowl as fast as he can if he starts for England at the upcoming World T20, saying he feels fit and stronger than his ever done.

The 30-year-old seamer was called into the England squad for the global event after paceman Steven Finn pulled put through injury, and the right-arm bowler wants to make the most of his opportunity.

The Yorkshire paceman admits to being frustrated after he wasn't selected in any of the formats for England's recent tour to South Africa.

Plunkett said: "It's been a frustrating time but I feel fit and strong now and bowling as fast as I have done.

"It's a good thing for England cricket that we have so many good cricketers but I'm here now and if I can perform really well I can be around for a while.

"I feel like I offer something different and I've been bowling quick for the last year or two. You need to work on different skills like yorkers and slower balls, but I'm also in the squad to bowl as quick as I can."

England start their World T20 campaign against the West Indies in Mumbai on 18 March.
