Eoin Morgan is now contemplating retiring from the game
Eoin Morgan has taken England’s white-ball cricket to newer heights
The 35-year-old Morgan has led England in 126 games, winning 76, and losing 40, while two matches have ended in ties, and eight have yielded no results.
Eoin Morgan has taken England’s white-ball cricket to newer heights since taking over the reins in 2015. However, Morgan, who won the 50-overs World Cup for England in 2019, and guided his side to the final of the 2016 T20 World Cup, is now contemplating retiring from the game.
Wicket-keeper Jos Buttler and all-rounder Moeen Ali are the two front-runners to take up the post of England’s white-ball captaincy if Morgan decides to call time on his career.
Ahead of the Netherlands series, Morgan said, “If I don’t think I am good enough or I don’t feel I am contributing to the team, then I will finish.” His next limited-overs assignment will be against India, where both teams will feature in a 3-ODI and 3-T20I series starting July 7. England will then compete in a series against the visiting South African side, who will also play as many ODIs and T20Is as India.
Morgan has scored 7,000 + runs in 225 ODIs with 13 centuries and under 2,500 runs in T20Is from 115 games.
