When it comes to tactics in cricket, Morgan is someone who can be regarded as a pioneer. He has used data very well and most of the team’s strategies are defined by numbers. With such a player behind the mic, the fans can be treated to some interesting content.
England has quite a few options for Morgan’s replacement
The current holders of the 50-over World Cup, England will have a lot of options for the role of limited-overs captain. Morgan had been at the helm for a long time and during this time, many players gained prominence and experience while representing the squad. These cricketers have anyways got the skills and expertise to take over from Morgan.
While Jos Buttler will be at the top of the list of contenders, the likes of Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes might also be in the running. Considering Buttler has been the vice-captain for a while now, he is likely to be Morgan’s successor.
Ben Stokes is the captain of the Test squad. The all-rounder is also vital in the team’s plans for limited-overs cricket. Hence, it would not be a surprise even if he is also considered for the role.
