Morgan to Decide England Future After T20 World Cup in Australia

England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan will take a call on his future after next year’s Twenty20 World Cup in England, the 33-year-old said.

Morgan led England to their maiden ODI World Cup victory in July on home soil but has battled back injuries in recent years.

“I won’t say I’ll be finished after the next World Cup as I’d be afraid I’ll only creep over the line and maybe fall off,” Morgan told reporters on the eve of the five-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand.

“I don’t want to disappoint anyone. I want to drive for the World Cup in Australia and then make a call after that.”

“We have a special group of players at the moment. I feel very fortunate to lead that group and I think we can do something even more special in the future.”

England has rested Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler and Jason Roy for the Twenty20 series against a team that exceeded the limit count in the final of the ODI World Cup at Lord’s.

England has included five limitless players in their Twenty20 mix, although Morgan felt it would not be easy for them to enter the World Cup team.

“There are not many places available in our best XI and probably in our last 15 for 12 months.

“But we are not only building for 12 months, but also the next World Cup.”

“I think we are in a reasonably strong position. We will seek to build our best XI and 15 for each series that leads to a fine adjustment of roles and we have absolute clarity in what we are trying to do as a team.”
