After falling for a golden duck in England’s all-time record innings of 498, Morgan’s poor form continued when he departed for a seven-ball duck in the second ODI as the visitors went 2-0 up in the three-match series. took an unassailable lead. Morgan last scored a half-century in international cricket during the first ODI against Sri Lanka in July last year.
“It’s just the fickle nature of the game. If you’re behind the eighth ball it’s pretty tough but he’s an incredible worker, an incredible guy so I’m definitely backing him. He’s the captain of our team and The game is winning so I think that matters more to him than his score which makes him more special to play. He will be fine. He will be absolutely fine,” Roy said after the match.
Former England cricketer Dominic Cork admitted that Morgan’s weakness with the bat is a matter of concern for the left-handed batsman as well as England, but felt that one should not panic just yet.
“I’m sure it’s a concern for Eoin Morgan and a concern for England, but I think what he’s done as captain and what he’s done as a batsman is on the bank. There is some credit. A lot of world cricket, at the moment. He just needs a knock. That’s all,” Cork told Sky Sports News.
Cork also urged England to be patient as Morgan regained her form as the space for batsmen in England’s white-ball squads warmed up. “Let’s wait and see where we are in six to eight months’ time when he plays a little more cricket. Then, I think the selectors, Rob Key and the coach will sit down and decide what’s best. Will he Still one of the best six batsmen in the team? If he is, he’s in the team.”
