ODI WORLD CUP

“It seems a little unrealistic,” says Eoin Morgan of his dreams of becoming England’s head coach.

It seems “a bit far-fetched” to former England captain Eoin Morgan to take over as Matthew Mott’s white-ball coach. Following the reigning champions’ appalling performance in the present ICC Cricket World Cup in India, sentiments were expressed.

Morgan is presently employed as a broadcaster for the ongoing competition. In 2019, Morgan guided England to their first-ever ODI World Cup victory. Having lost five of their last six games, Jos Buttler and company were now mired at the bottom of the ten-team standings when he recently chastised them.

‘It’s a bit far-fetched’ – Eoin Morgan

It’s a bit far-fetched. Everybody’s entitled to interpretate [sic] my comments. I was very clear in what I thought might be a cause to the performance that the England team have produced throughout this World Cup”.

Nobody in the changing room – captain or any of the players – can explain the situation that they find themselves in. But I’m very happy and cemented, hopefully, in what I’m going to do for the future. I spend a lot of time at home now with my young family, which is great, and I love watching on,” . Morgan told Sky Sports.

Morgan continued by saying it would not be a good idea to change the captain and coach in the middle of the competition. The 37-year-old continued saying that England is a strong side. And pointing out that they have won the World Cups in both the ODI and T20 formats. Morgan also brought up current head coach Mott, saying the team needs to give him more time.

I actually think talk of replacing captain and coach is not a good idea at the moment. Simply because of the high turnover of World Cups. They’re double world champions for a reason: they’re not a bad team by any stretch. Matthew Mott is going through his biggest challenge of his England coaching career at the moment, and it’s one that he should be given time to put right, certainly towards the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean and the USA,” he added.
