Eoin Morgan: T20 evolution must work in tandem with protection of Test cricket | The Spin

England’s one-day captain is happy to specialise in the limited-overs game but feels there must be a shift or the divide between the formats will become bigger

Eoin Morgan has given a few masterclasses this summer. There was his century against South Africa at Headingley, his 87 against Australia at Edgbaston and his 75 against Bangladesh at The Oval. Then there was the hour he spent at Aldersley leisure centre in Wolverhampton. You may have missed that one. It was during the finals of Chance to Shine’s street cricket competition, when the kids were taking a break from whacking tape balls around the indoor gym. One asked Morgan which was his favourite shot, another, a young Pakistan fan, what it felt like to be cleaned up by Hasan Ali and a third wanted to know how much Morgan enjoyed playing for his favourite team. Which wasn’t England, or Middlesex, but the Kings XI Punjab. It was another little reminder of the ways in which the game is changing.

Eoin Morgan says dropping himself from series decider was a ‘tough call’

• England captain defends his decision for final South Africa match
• Vaughan tweet: ‘1-1…Series decider…and England Skipper is resting!!!!’

Eoin Morgan, the England limited-overs captain, defended the controversial decision to drop himself from the team’s series Twenty20 decider against South Africa on Sunday, insisting the need to blood new players for the future was his overriding priority.

Dawid Malan struck 77 from 44 balls as England, captained by Jos Buttler, claimed a 19-run win against the tourists in Cardiff and 2-1 win. But with a host of first-team players rested from the squad originally, including Joe Root and Ben Stokes, Morgan stepping down to give Lancashire’s Liam Livingstone a second cap was seen as a step too far by some.

• ‘He is still very young … the earlier he gets into his apprenticeship the better’

Eoin Morgan admits to England regrets after dismal Champions Trophy exit

• Captain says worn Cardiff pitch meant ‘there was no home advantage’
• Pakistan win by eight wickets to set up all-Asian final at The Oval

Eoin Morgan was left lamenting a lack of home advantage and his side’s inability to adapt after a collective dose of paralysis with the bat on a reused Cardiff pitch led to England being bundled out of the Champions Trophy by a resurgent Pakistan.

As Sarfraz Ahmed led his players on a lap of honour in front of a strong and jubilant Pakistani support, England could only reflect on a dismal showing in the eight-wicket defeat in the semi-final, one that means their search for a first global 50-over crown rolls on to the 2019 World Cup on home soil.

England turn to Bairstow for Champions Trophy semi-final against Pakistan

• Yorkshireman Jonny Bairstow to replace Jason Roy as opener in only change
• ODI captain Eoin Morgan praises batsman’s ‘relentless attitude’

Eoin Morgan has tipped the “relentless attitude” of Jonny Bairstow to come to the fore on Wednesday as England make one change to their batting lineup for the Champions Trophy semi-final with Pakistan in Cardiff.

The England captain stopped short of naming his XI before a toss he admitted he hopes to lose – a reused pitch at Sophia Gardens is behind that – but could do little to play down the fact Jason Roy has been dropped after the misfiring opener played a minimal part in a training session and Bairstow was the first batsman in the nets.

Steve Smith calls England ‘predictable’ ahead of Champions Trophy showdown

• Smith wary of ‘dangerous batters’ Australia will face at Edgbaston
• Eoin Morgan: ‘If you never play an Ashes test this is the closest you will get’

Eoin Morgan has described facing Australia in a one-day tournament as being as close as he will come to experiencing the heat of an Ashes series. But as his players prepared for a free shot at sending their rivals home from the Champions Trophy, the England captain received a flavour of its intensity when his counterpart Steve Smith described his tactics as “predictable”.

Morgan, an unused squad player on England’s victorious 2010-11 Ashes tour, became a limited-overs specialist after a 16-cap Test career that only briefly flickered and since taking over the limited overs captaincy at the start of the 2015 World Cup has led a revival that now sees them already booked into Wednesday’s first semi-final.

Eoin Morgan’s loyalty to players has made England fearless, says Farbrace

• England set to keep faith with misfiring Jason Roy against Australia

Eoin Morgan has been singled out as the most important figure behind England’s one-day revival by the team’s assistant coach, Paul Farbrace, who believes their current barnstorming approach to the format comes down to the captain’s near relentless backing of misfiring players.

After wins over Bangladesh and New Zealand, England go into Saturday’s group game against Australia at Edgbaston with a Champions Trophy semi-final already sewn up and their one headache being whether to stick with Jason Roy or parachute in Jonny Bairstow as opener.
