Eoin Morgan to announce retirement from international cricket

Eoin Morgan to announce retirement from international cricket

England’s limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan is likely to announce his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday. This will not only bring an end to Morgan’s captaincy career but also his era as a player will fade.

According to reports, Morgan has been under pressure due to his suffering form and a series of injuries. His mate Moeen Ali told BBC’s Test match special that the World Cup 2019 winning skipper is done with his profession.

“He’s done a remarkable job. It is a shame. It is strange to comprehend the side without him. Things move on and you have to get used to it, but it is sad. I’m not surprised at the same time because he is a very selfless person and probably is thinking about the team more than anything,”

The statements further read,

“We’ve been so strong over the years and he probably feels like his time is done and that he’s given enough time for Jos, or whoever the captain is going to be, to embed his way,”

It has also been learnt that wicketkeeping batter Jos Buttler is likely to take Morgan’s place as a skipper of the limited-overs format. Notably, the Irish cricketer was appointed England’s captain in 2014 and has contributed efficiently to the country’s white-ball cricket.

June 28 will set curtains down on Morgan’s stellar career in which he has amassed over 10,000 runs in T20Is and ODIs. Despite him being the magnificent batter, he could hardly smash two half-centuries in the last 28 appearances. Moreover, concerns raised about his forms and fitness have forced him to give up his post.
