Eoin Morgan is set to retire from international cricket.

Eoin Morgan, England's World Cup-winning captain, will retire from all forms of international cricket on Tuesday (June 28), bringing an end to a spectacular white-ball career in which he scored over 10,000 runs between ODIs and T20Is.

Morgan, 35, had indicated a desire to captain England at the T20 World Cup later this year in Australia, but it is believed that mounting worries over form and health have prompted him to end his England career. In fact, the explosive middle-order bat has only scored two half-centuries in his past 28 appearances for England.

Morgan scored 6957 of his 7701 ODI runs after switching allegiance from Ireland to England in 2009. While it remains England's best ODI score, his legacy will be defined by his seven-year leadership stint, which transformed the country's white-ball game.

He took over as captain from Alastair Cook soon before the 2015 World Cup, but the transformational work began after England's World Cup elimination at the hands of Bangladesh. England produced a battery of power hitters who consistently smashed 300+ runs under Morgan and then-coach Trevor Bayliss. Everything culminated in a stunning World Cup victory at Lord's in 2019.

Morgan captained the team 126 times in ODIs and 72 times in T20Is. He also led England to two T20 World Cup titles, although they fell short by narrow margins in both 2016 (runners up) and 2022. (semifinalists). Jos Buttler, who has been Morgan's deputy since 2015 and has led the squad 13 times, is expected to skipper the team in their next match against India.

Moeen Ali, who has played 95 of his 115 ODIs and 40 of his 49 T20Is under Morgan's captaincy, voiced his disappointment at his approaching retirement. "He's done an outstanding job. It's a pity. It's strange to understand the other side without him. Things change and you have to adjust, yet it is sad. I'm not shocked at the same time because he is a really unselfish person who is perhaps more concerned about the team than with himself "Moeen said with BBC Test Match Special.

"We've been so strong over the years, and he probably thinks like his time is over and that he's provided enough time for Jos, or whomever the captain will be, to implement his way," Moeenexplained.

After seven and a half years as England's white-ball captain, Eoin Morgan is poised to step down and retire from international cricket on Tuesday.

Morgan was appointed in 2014 and has led England's transformation in limited-overs cricket, revamping one-day teams and bringing them to their first World Cup in 2019, but his form and fitness have caused him to question his future.

He has been unable to play games on consecutive days this year due to muscle issues in his right leg, and he missed Wednesday's third ODI against the Netherlands with a "groyne niggle" following successive ducks in the first two games of the series.

On Sunday night, The Guardian claimed that Morgan was contemplating his future and that he was planning to announce his worldwide retirement. Jos Buttler, who has frequently deputised as captain, is poised to take his position.

Nasser Hussain praised England's World Cup-winning captain, Eoin Morgan, who is scheduled to retire from international cricket soon. Nasser claimed that the southpaw was ahead of his time since he saw the potential of the IPL for English cricketers early on.

As an on-field captain, he was cool, calm, and calculated: Hussain


Hussain expanded on Morgan's tactical leadership by using an example from the 2019 World Cup final, saying, "As an on-field captain, he was cool, calm, and calculating." He was freezing. He had a presence, as do all great leaders. And the one time he got it wrong, he learnt from it. So, after Jofra Archer's fantastic over against New Zealand in the 50-over final at Lord's in 2019, Morgan made sure to speak to his bowler after he began with a tight wide."
