    Default England dangerous dark horse for Twenty20 World Cup: Collingwood

    Paul Collingwood

    England captain Paul Collingwood believes his team can exploit their role as

    unfancied outsiders and become a dangerous dark horse to lift the Twenty20

    World Cup.

    Collingwood believes without that pressure, England can thrive during the

    coming weeks and perhaps build up enough momentum to become serious

    challengers on home soil.

    Asked whether there was a lot of pressure as hosts, Collingwood

    stressed: "We've got a slight advantage knowing the conditions, but it's

    probably the other way around and there are not a lot of expectations on our


    "We're very much dark horses and hopefully that will give the boys a bit more

    of a licence. The belief and the freedom to go out there and express yourself

    is important in this form of the game so hopefully that gives the boys a bit

    more of a licence and they won't have as much pressure on them," he added.

    Chasing Scotland's 136 for five on Tuesday, Pietersen sealed their triumph

    with an over to spare on his first England appearance since missing the one-

    day series triumph against West Indies with Achilles problems, The

    Independent reports.

    Collingwood confirmed that England may field a stronger side later today after

    James Anderson (left ankle) and off-spinner Graeme Swann (back) were

    rested as a precaution against niggles in their final match before the

    tournament opener against Holland at Lord's on Friday.

    "There are obviously areas we're going to have a look at and yesterday was

    more of an experimental side, but we'll make decisions when we get our

    heads together and our next side will be more like the side that will be playing

    on Friday," he said.
