Morgan’s is a concern but he is a leader and should lead England: Edwards



Former England women’s captain Charlotte Edwards believes that despite Eoin Morgan’s patchy form heading into the ICC T20 World Cup here, he will be a ‘guaranteed starter’ in the ‘Super 12’ match. Against the West Indies here later. Saturday.

Edwards, who retired from international cricket in 2016 after playing nearly 200 ODI women and 95 WT20I in addition to 23 women tests, added that the return of a win over New Zealand in the warm-up match would have increased England’s confidence level. team.

“Eoin Morgan’s form hasn’t been particularly good lately, but for me he’s a guaranteed starter with his contribution as captain and the runs he’s already scored. I wouldn’t bet against it. him, I think he will make a good tournament, Sometimes it’s not a bad thing to come in without too many points because he is too good a player not to become good at some point “, a Edwards said in his column for the ICC.

Although his IPL Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team made it to the final this year, Morgan was chased by poor form.

“I know Morgan said he would step down from the squad if it was the right thing to do and that’s a huge statement. It just shows that he cares about the performance of the team. knows if he doesn’t play well enough, he will be prepared and have confidence in someone like Jos Buttler to take over, ”added Edwards.

“But I think England are a stronger team with Morgan and you can see how much the boys love to play under him. I’ve never been in that position but I think I would feel the exact same. And run the gates early, but I think he will be perfectly fine, ”she said.

Following their loss to India in the warm-up match, England came back strong to defeat New Zealand in the second warm-up match and Edwards felt that this had done the team a lot of good, given that the team had lost both tests. series 1-0 earlier this year alongside Kane Williamson. “It was a good start to the tournament and I can’t wait for the Super 12 games to start on Saturday with England playing against the West Indies in a repeat of the Men’s ICC T20 World Cup Final 2016,” said Edwards .

“After a win over New Zealand in the warm-up game they (England) will be pretty confident for this competition. They have a lot of high quality players who can make the selection very difficult at times, but I think them. bowlers win World Cups and T20 matches, so depth will have to be in the bowling alley. “
