Eoin Morgan was instrumental in helping England to sport a fearless and aggressive brand of cricket – Chris Woakes

Chris WoakesAn all-rounder said that Eoin Morgan was a major factor in the recovery of English cricket after the 2015 World Cup in Australia. Seven years ago, the Three Lions were eliminated from the mega-event after falling to Bangladesh in a Pool-A encounter.

The Three Lions were chasing 276 to remain in the tournament when they were bowled out for 260 in 48.3. After winning the World Cup, England switched to an aggressive style of cricket, and four years later, they defeated New Zealand at Lord’s to win the championship at home.

Eoin Morgan and team management had a vision of where the team needed to move forward: Chris Woakes

Particularly in limited overs cricket, players like Jason Roy, Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone and others went on the offensive by playing boldly.

“The change came back in 2015. After the 2015 World Cup, we felt that we were miles behind some of the other teams that played in that tournament. We got knocked out in the group stage, which was very rare for England in white-ball cricket.

“Eoin Morgan, Trevor Bayliss and Andrew Strauss had the vision that the team needed to move forward, trying to get to a stage where they could compete again,” According to a video posted on the Twitter account of Pakistan Cricket, Chris Woakes said.

“Eoin Morgan was instrumental in that as captain, leading from the front. The change was to be a little more fearless and play a brand of cricket where we test the limits, how high can we go, how aggressive we can be especially with the bat. he said.
