Eoin Morgan

Trusted ​​British daily newspaper company ‘The Guardian’ has reported that English cricketer Eoin Morgan who is currently the T20I and ODI captain of the English National Team is set to announce his retirement from International Cricket soon over his lack of form in both the formats. 

Despite having a poor patch in the Indian Premier League for quite some time now, Eoin Morgan always performed at bigger stages when it came to the English National team. However, the skipper has been unable to do so in recent times and the 3-match ODI series between England and Netherlands that concluded just 5 days ago on 22nd June, was seemingly the final nail to his coffin. 

Eoin Morgan led England in the first two matches of the series and departed for two consecutive ducks in both matches. He was ruled out of the third match due to a supposed ‘groin injury’ but netizens were surprised that despite that he was seen playing in a corporate match on the same day. Although Morgan skipped a number of charity matches for the next few days, the rumours had started spreading and now trusted sources claim that he might actually consider hanging up his gloves. 

Before the commencement of the Netherlands series, Eoin Morgan had suggested that his growing age is having a dawning effect on his performance. “If I don’t think I am good enough or I don’t feel I am contributing to the team, then I will finish,” he had said in an interview. Well the point was proven very well on the field.
