England National Cricket Team white-ball captain Eoin Morgan has said that he can still contribute to a World Cup win for his team in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which will be held in Australia.

England captain Eoin Morgan has been struggling for runs lately and he has also been struggling with the injuries in recent times. His position as a white-ball captain has come under scrutiny after his continuous failures with the bat as he has scored only one fifty in international cricket over the last 18 months.

Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan was asked if he would be playing for England in next year’s 50-over World Cup in India to which he replied by saying that said that the Cricket World Cup 2023 is very far away and his focus is on the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.

“That’s a long way away. I need to get to the T20 one first. I’m going to take it as it comes, managing my contribution, my body.

“Am I still contributing on and off the field, within the team? I will be as honest as I [have been] with everybody since I started the captaincy. At the moment, I still feel like I contribute and still feel like I can contribute to a World Cup win. That’s an important drive for me,” Eoin Morgan was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

Speaking at a press conference England’s new white-ball coach Matthew Mott threw his support behind Morgan and said that he has got “a lot of great cricket ahead of him”. He elaborated:

“He always says he wants to be picked as a batter in that team on form and merit all the way through and when he feels that’s not the case then he would step aside. I think that’s a long way off being at that point.

“Great players go through runs at different times and sometimes you flick a switch and it turns and you wonder what all the fuss has been about. You can tell when he speaks, everybody is listening. That leadership is something that’s probably not as recognised as much from the outside as it is inside. He’s got a lot of great cricket ahead of him.”

It’s unlikely I will be playing every game this summer – Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan further made a revelation that he will not be playing every T20I game for England this summer. He said:

“It’s unlikely I will be playing every game this summer. but that’s purely dependent on how I get from here to that match. If I’m flying and everything is going well, absolutely, but if not, there is no need to try and replicate that for a World Cup because it just doesn’t happen [in ICC events].”

England’s white-ball captain added that he always makes the decisions which are in the best interests of the team. He also said that the month of July is going to be an exciting one for England and they will face two of the strongest teams – India and South Africa. He asserted:

“It happens all the time as a player, never mind as a captain. I genuinely have the best interests of the team at heart. It’s always been that way: I have trusted that method since I took over. To be in the position I am in at the moment is a privilege.”

“It revolves around trying to get the right players in the right roles given the squad we’ve brought. July’s a huge month for us in preparation for the [T20] World Cup, playing against two very strong sides [India and South Africa] over the course of a month which will test us.

“That’s where we want to be to try and prepare ourselves best for that World Cup. Then there’s the Hundred obviously, but then we have no more international cricket before we go to Pakistan and then we have three games [in Australia] before the World Cup.”

England National Cricket Team have got five left-arm pacers in their bowling cartel and while talking about his left-arm seamers Eoin Morgan said:

“The fact they are left-armers gives them a different angle, a different strategy. Certainly in my experience, left-armers are open to doing more and doing different things, which is great. But the guys who are selected are purely here on merit. Ideally in our best squad, you would like a point of difference: if that’s left-arm or if it’s a guy who bowls 90mph [145kph] plus, then that’s great.”
