After crashing out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 tournament, England revamped their white-ball strategies to the degree where the cricketing world starting considering them an invincible unit. ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event gave a bit of hiccups to hosts but in the end, the professionalism and temperament allowed England to book a semi-final berth after a gap of 27 long years.
The news came as a sigh of relief for the whole country and skipper Eoin Morgan is no exception as a defeat against New Zealand would have dented England’s semi-final hopes massively. The 32-year old cricketer, while reflecting on England’s journey from 2015, showered heaps of praise on his unit as he opined that everyone is looking to play his role well which allows his bunch to win pressure moments.
Sharing his views in the post-match presentation ceremony, Morgan said, “It’s brilliant to play with. We don’t ask guys to average 50 and strike at 120, that’s unrealistic. But pushing the ceiling as to what guys would normally do was part of the process.”
“Looking at where the guys are at now, it’s incredible, really, the talent they possess and actually what they can achieve on a consistent basis,” he added.
