Morgan undecided about captaincy future

Eoin Morgan says he is yet to make a decision regarding his future as England's leader in limited overs cricket following his side's historic World Cup win over New Zealand at Lord's.

Morgan conceded captaining England for the next four years until the 2023 World Cup would be a "big commitment" although he set his sights on the T20 World Cup next year.

"I don't think I'm in a good state to make a decision at the moment, just simply that I haven't had a chance to get away from the madness and the craze of winning the World Cup," said Morgan.

"I've not been able to get into a logical mindset and actually ask myself a couple of questions.

"It's taken a huge amount out of me, both mentally and physically, so once everything calms down over the next couple of months I'll hopefully come to a decision that at the forefront of it will be my family and the team.

Morgan has been at the helm of England's remarkable transformation from the embarrassing first-round exit in the 2015 World Cup to now securing the status of world champions.

Morgan's unbridled aggression shone through a fearless mindset adopted by his players characterized by their sheer batting dominance in the past few years.

His partnership with head coach Trevor Bayliss reaped tremendous success for the team, however, the 56-year-old Australian is expected to leave his position by the end of the Ashes series later this summer.

Reflecting upon England's dramatic World Cup final victory in bizarre circumstances which involved a tied Super Over, Morgan claimed: "No, I think it will take time. The madness has been taken to a new level everywhere I go."

Morgan to lead Dublin Chiefs in Euro T20 Slam

Morgan, who previously represented Ireland in the 2007 World Cup, has been signed by Dublin Chiefs for the inaugural edition of the Euro T20 Slam.

The new T20 competition will feature six teams in Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands and Morgan's induction in the roster of international cricketers is expected to add star value to the tournament.

"It's important to lay a platform to give people opportunities to play on a more consistent basis against some of the best players in the world," Morgan stated at the player auction.

"It's brilliant and I think there's a market for it as well."

The list of stars lined up for the league includes Pakistan's Babar Azam and Mohammad Amir, Australia's Shane Watson, South Africa's JP Duminy and New Zealander Martin Guptill.

The Euro T20 Slam will be jointly hosted by Amstelveen, Edinburgh and Malahide and is scheduled to be held from August 30 to September 22.
