Kerala Kings is co-owned by Shafi-Ul Mulk and the owner of the franchise is all praise for the captain of the team. Morgan has led England with aplomb and the results are palpable for everyone. In fact, Shafi is proud that his team would now be led by the World Cup-winning captain.
Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan had played a scintillating knock of 148 runs from just 71 balls in the league stage match against Afghanistan. Morgan had smashed a record-breaking 17 sixes in an innings and had also scored four fours. It was a devastating knock from Morgan and Afghanistan bowlers had no clue on how to stop Morgan’s assault. Thus, the T10 league has helped Morgan in hitting the ground running.
On the other hand, Eoin Morgan has promised to return as the captain of the side for the third edition of the T10 league.
“I was fortunate to witness our Kerala team’s captain winning the World Cup through one of the most memorable games in the history of the game at Lord’s. For all of us in the team and personally for me, as I have a close relationship with Morgan, we feel proud of him and his achievement,” Shafi said.
“It is a matter of pride for the Kerala team that our team skipper is the World Cup-winning captain. Morgan is a friend and a wonderful human being. He exhibited his calmness and maturity throughout the World Cup and lifted England superbly from under pressure following the defeats in the round-robin stage”, he added.
Eoin Morgan will look to continue his good form and his insights will be valuable for Kerala Kings. Shafi added Morgan possesses a very calm and composed nature and it helps him to lead with confidence.
“I knew he possesses a very unique cool and calm temperament. As soon as the T10 matches began in the first season, I saw that he has exemplary leadership qualities. He kept infusing strong self-belief in his teammates’ skills and kept motivating them. It is these qualities in him that helped us become the first champions of the T10 league,” Shafi said.
Eoin Morgan has done a great job for England. The English team will play a one-off four-day Test match against Ireland. Subsequently, England will take part in the Ashes from 1st August.
