Eoin Morgan, England’s 50-over World Cup-winning captain, retired from international cricket on Tuesday. He steps down as England’s leading run-scorer and most capped player in both white-ball formats and the only man to lead the team to an ODI World Cup success.
Morgan since England’s failure at the 2015 Cricket World Cup, took the team to unprecedented heights.
Not only did he lead England to its first World Cup in 2019 but also took them to the No.1 ranking in One Day Internationals and T20s. The former captain has scored 700 runs in 16 Test Matches, playing his last red-ball match in February 2012.
He has played 225 ODIs for England and has scored 6957 runs while has 115 T20Is for England and has scored 2458 runs.
