In what could be the end of one of the most glorious chapters in England’s white-ball cricket history, the captain Eoin Morgan, according to reports in the British media, he will announce his retirement from international cricket. The official announcement could be made on Tuesday, according to a BBC report. Morgan is credited with bringing about a change in England’s approach to oversized restrictive cricket. He led the Three Lions to their first win of the 50 World Cup in 2019.

The Morgan Revolution began shortly after England were knocked out by Bangladesh at the 2015 ICC World Cup in Australia in the group stage.

Morgan has created an army of talented young players who have taken offensive cricket in ODI and T20I to the next level. The first glimpse of this new England team was at the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 in India as Morgan’s men reached the final, only to be deflated in the summit’s final clash with West Indies’ Carlos Brathwaite.

Morgan, who started his international cricket career with Ireland, has played 225 ODIs and 115 T20Is for England, which is a record for the Three Lions.

So far, he has scored 7701 runs in 248 ODIs with an average of 39.29 with 14 centuries and 47 fifties.

He also scored 2458 runs in 115 T20Is.


Morgan’s Test numbers are a bit low as he was sidelined after scoring 700 runs in 16 Tests with an average of 30.43.

Morgan has faced concerns about poor form and fitness and was recently withdrawn from the ODI final against the Netherlands due to injury.
