England’s Eoin Morgan has immediately retired from international cricket. Eoin Morgan, England’s captain in the World Cup-winning campaign, has retired from the international cricket, England’s cricket board, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), announced Tuesday. England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan is set to announce his retirement from international cricket, while Jos Buttler is poised to step in as White-Ball captain. With England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) having confirmed Morgan’s retirement on Tuesday, several luminaries of global cricket hailed Morgan for a remarkable white-ball career in the international arena.
On the evening of June 19, straight after recording his second duck of England’s tour of the Netherlands, he remained in his WestCord Fashion hotel room, taking notes on the impending T20 World Cup. How England would get there, what they would do – “regular run-of-the-mill stuff I do,” he said. He went to bed, slept well, awoke, and announced his retirement from international cricket. The Englishman has announced his retirement from international cricket following leading England to top positions in ODIs and T20Is. Morgan, who changed how England played limited-overs cricket and led the Three Lions to a maiden World Cup victory at the 50-over level in 2019, was set to make an official announcement on Tuesday. England’s Eoin Morgan says that, although the 2019 World Cup was the highlight of the performances, if he can revisit any moment from his international career, it would be starting England’s limited-overs renaissance after the 2015 edition.
England’s Eoin Morgan has also played in 16 Tests, scoring 700 runs. But injuries and lack of runs in the T20s and ODIs have raised questions over his form ahead of the T20 World Cup later this year and also ahead of England’s defence of England’s title of the 50-overs format in 2023. England’s Eoin Morgan, who played his first-ever 50-overs World Cup in 2019, has scored 7,701 runs in all ODIs, of which 6,957 were scored for England since switching their loyalties from Ireland in 2009. Morgan is widely credited with making a radical change in how England played England’s white-ball cricket, and his captaincy saw England winning the 2019 50-over World Cup, while the team also reached the 2016 T20 World Cup final.
England’s captaincy tenure with Eoin Morgan started back in 2015. A new model has been implemented as England lifted the first-ever World Cup in the 50-over format following their exciting victory against New Zealand at Lords in 2019. Brendon McCullum has recently taken up the post as England’s red-ball coach and, speaking after the completion of his maiden campaign with a 3-0 victory against New Zealand, paid tribute to Eoin Morgan, calling him one of his best mates.
