Morgan wants time to think about England future

19th July 2019, 16:12 by Simon Barlow

World Cup-winning hero Eoin Morgan says he will take some time to decide if he will stay on as England's white-ball captain.

The Irishman has played a huge part in England's remarkable turnaround from a one-day cricket laughing stock to 50-over world champions.

But the 32-year-old is yet to commit his future to the job he has held since 2014.

Morgan said it would be a "big commitment" to continue in the role until the 2023 World Cup in India, with next year's World Twenty20 tournament a "more realistic" target.

"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," Morgan told BBC Sport.

"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."

Elsewhere on Friday, Morgan was named as the Dublin Chiefs' 'icon' player at the draft for the newly-established Euro T20 Slam tournament.

Six teams from three countries - Ireland, Holland and Scotland - will compete over 33 games between August 30 and September 22 for the inaugural title.
