T10 is ideal for Olympics: Eoin Morgan

England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan feels that the latest format of the cricket T10 is tailor-made for the Olympics. Cricket has not been included in Olympics since 1900, that is why England captain feels it will be a good platform to bring back cricket in Olympics.

"The one thing that T10 offers above the three formats that makes it so appealing to an Olympic Games or a Commonwealth Games is the fact that you can play a whole tournament in the space of 10 days," Morgan said.

Moreover, England captain said that T10 format has his own sets of skills and players who are ideal to play in it. "The most important part of a T20 game is always the overs from 10 to 20," he said. "But if you look at a T10 game, the earlier overs are the most important."

"You need to make the most of that very short powerplay, so who you put in those key positions and in the form that they’re in, is the most critical factor," added Morgan, who will be captaining Delhi Bulls in Abu Dhabi T10 league.
