Eoin Morgan set to retire from international cricket

Update : 29 Jun 2022, 11:51

England’s World Cup winning team captain Ian Morgan may announce his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday.

The southpaw has been going through a lean patch in recent times and has been under the scanner for his fitness issues this year.

The 35-year-old revolutionized England cricket and led them to the 2019 World Cup triumph — their first major global 50-overs title. He also took them to the top of the one-day and Twenty20 rankings.

Dublin-born Morgan was twice out for nought during the recent ODI series in the Netherlands and withdrew from the third game with a groin issue.

Morgan is England’s all-time leading run-scorer in ODI and T20 cricket with 6,957 and 2,458 runs respectively.

Morgan scored more than 10,000 runs in ODIs and T20Is combined during his career spanning 16 years. He wanted to lead England in this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia but changed his mind after struggling with form and fitness over the past 18 months, Sky Sports reported.
