Spartan Sports ambassador Eoin Morgan has enjoyed a hugely successful month of cricket, captaining both English limited over sides to commanding series victories over Pakistan.
Despite losing the first One Day International, Morgan’s side all but dominated the following three to make a strong statement about their quality and determination; where under previously shambolic leadership, they may have crumbled.
Following the aftermath of Cook’s dismissal before the disastrous 2014/15 World Cup, Morgan has led the English ODI squad to series victories against New Zealand and now Pakistan, while narrowly losing out to Australia.
Subsequent to the Pakistan whitewash, England have surged to fourth in the ICC Twenty20 rankings, and have emerged victorious from their past six outings.
The Twenty20 series climaxed with an intense “super-over”, after scores were level by the end of the traditional twenty. Incredible full pitched bowling from Chris Jordan restricted Pakistan to 3-1; allowing Eoin Morgan to claim the winning runs for England in their following over, demonstrating his usual calm leadership under pressure.
Eoin Morgan’s side will play two more Twenty20 internationals against South Africa, before their attention turns to the World Cup later in this year. They look in unstoppable form, despite the lack of a major domestic Twenty20 competition.
Morgan has used the set of Pakistan series wisely, rotating the squad to explore his options. Due to this clever utilisation of roster, the Spartan Sports ambassador should be able to select from a large range of in-form cricketers to take to India for the World Cup.
Since taking over, Eoin Morgan‘s transformation of England’s white ball cricket has been remarkable; reinvigorating the side with new energy, audacity and intelligent decision-making. He has instilled an aggressive, free-flowing philosophy into the side with remarkable efficacy.
