England’s white-ball skipper Eoin Morgan announced retirement from international cricket on Tuesday. In his illustrious career, Morgan stepped down as England’s leading run-scorer and most capped player in both white-ball formats and the only captain to lead the team to an ODI World Cup triumph. Under the leadership of Morgan, England defeated New Zealand in the final of the 2019 World Cup.

Morgan led the national side in 126 ODIs, winning 76 and losing 40 of them. In the T20I format, he captained the side in 72 games and won 42 of them, while 27 were lost by England. He played 248 ODIs and amassed 7,701 runs with the help of 14 centuries and 47 fifties. In the 115 T20Is, Morgan scored 2,458 runs with the help of 14 fifties.

Morgan revealed that he had come to the realization during this month’s trip to the Netherlands, where he batted twice without scoring any runs. He also shared that he spoke to many former cricketers and others about their experiences and when they felt like quitting the game. “I engaged a lot with ex-players as to when they stopped and how it came about, and how the transition worked. And each person to a man said there’s a time and a place where it hits you,” Morgan told Sky Sports News

And now English commentator Alan Wilkins has made an exciting revelation related to Morgan during the pre-match show between India versus Ireland 2nd T20I at The Village, in Dublin. Wilkins revealed that the Ireland cricket board is eager to rope in the Irish-born ex-England cricketer, who played his formative cricket in Ireland, in some coaching capacity.

Speaking of Ireland, the island nation is hosting the Indian team in twin T20Is as a preparatory bilateral series for the T20 World Cup 2022, scheduled later this year in Australia. Hardik Pandya-led side has already registered a comprehensive win by 7 wickets in the rain-affected first T20I, while the second T20I is underway. While Ireland is playing with a full-strength squad, the Indian side is missing out on senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah among others.
