England cricket team’s current ODI and T20 team captain Eoin Morgan can announce his retirement soon. Such news is going on by quoting many media reports. It is also being said that after Morgan, the command of England’s team in white ball cricket can be handed over to Moeen Ali or Jos Buttler. However, no clarification has come from Morgan’s side on this yet. But recently in an interview before the Netherlands series, he had definitely indicated it.
Before the Netherlands ODI series, Eoin Morgan said, ‘If I don’t feel able to contribute to the team, then I will retire.’ Morgan’s age also increases. And for some time now his individual performance is proving to be zero. He was not even bought for IPL 2022. While under his captaincy, KKR became the runner-up in 2021. The team is winning under his captaincy but he seems to be struggling.
British captain going through bad form
Let us tell you that Eoin Morgan has always proved successful as a captain. England also won the 2019 World Cup under his captaincy. After this, the team is performing well under his leadership in IPL and at the present time also. But his individual performance has been extremely poor. The last time he scored a half-century was last July 2021. In the last 28 international innings, only two half-centuries have come off his bat. During his last two matches against the Netherlands, he was unable to open the account. Due to a groin injury, he was unable to participate in the last match.
