Profile

After England's stormy and miserable Ashes winter in 2013/14, Eoin Morgan pulled out of the Indian Premier League auction in a sign that he was intent on grabbing back his England Test place. While he found some first-class form, averaging 45.84 in the Championship, he did not quite score the weight of runs to force his way back into the side. But he remained a crucial member of England's ODI and T20 sides. As a left-hander who quickly built a reputation for inventive and audacious strokeplay, Morgan also possessed the patience and power of shot to be a natural "finisher" in limited-overs cricket - a role England have struggled to fill for a decade. His cool temperament and the tactical nous he has displayed as a stand-in skipper make Morgan the most likely successor to Alastair Cook as England's ODI captain.
