Eoin Morgan, the World Cup-winning captain of England, was pleased with India’s batting approach during the T20I series against England. The squad led by Rohit Sharma has an unbeatable 2-0 series lead after thrashing England twice by significant margins.

One of the greatest white-ball captains in history, Eoin Morgan, believes that India’s willingness to take chances has been extremely impressive.

Eoin Morgan Impressed By Changed Attitude Of Indian Batting

“I’ve noticed a huge change in their attitude towards taking risks. It’s been unbelievably impressive,” Eoin Morgan told SkySports during the second match between the two sides. 

India got off to a strong top-order start in both games. In the first game, captain Rohit Sharma got off to a fast start, while in the second game, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant provided excellent assistance.

Indian batters have demonstrated that they are not afraid to try for the big hits right away, even though they may not have been able to turn their early starts into significant scores.

Positive intent resulted in two respectable totals in the opening two games, which they successfully defended.
This was also quite different from what the Indian team often did prior to the most recent World Cup, which was to place a prize on their wickets. 

This Team India Is Different: Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan had made the case during the previous game that their leadership’s cautious attitude caused India’s disastrous performance in the T20 World Cup in the UAE. He continued by saying that they have obviously focused on that aspect of the game and attempted to change their mindset.

“The most impressive thing about India for me (on Thursday) is what they lacked in the group stages of the T20 World Cup, they brought.

Every single one of their batsmen came hard at England’s bowlers and that hasn’t happened in previous teams, previous squads that India have produced,” Eoin Morgan had said during the first T20I at Southampton. 

India will be going into the final match of the series hoping that their former captain Virat Kohli finds some form in the build-up to the T20 World Cup in Australia, scheduled to be played later this year.
