Amidst uncertainty regarding his cricketing career, England‘s ODI and T20I skipper Eoin Morgan said that he wants to play ICC T20 World Cup in 2020 and then make a call.
“I don’t want to let anyone down. I want to drive through the World Cup in Australia and then make a call after that,” Eoin Morgan told ICC.
Morgan will lead the ‘Three Lions’ in the T20I World Cup which will be played in Australia, next year.
“We have a special group of players at the moment. I feel very lucky to lead that group, and I think we can do something even more special down the line,” the former Ireland batsmen added.
Morgan led England to their maiden 50-over World Cup triumph, earlier this year. The ‘Three Lions’ defeated New Zealand in the final.
Both the team couldn’t be separated after 50-overs and super over but England were adjudged winner on boundary count rules.
England will be in New Zealand to play 5 T20I and two Tests.
Pat Brown, 21-year-old Worcestershire pacer, has been handed a maiden call-up for the T20Is. Sam Curran, who had a sensational Ashes campaign, has also found a place in the squad.
The first T20I will be played at Christchurch on November 1.
