Profile

Eoin Morgan has long considered one of England's most bankable limited-overs performers without ever quite winning over worldwide opinion. He ascended to the England one-day captaincy in slightly chaotic circumstances less than two months out from the 2015 World Cup, only to supervise an inadequate campaign. Ironically, his elevation to the captaincy coincided with one of his worst periods of form since switching to England from Ireland but once the selectors had decided to dispense with Alastair Cook, Morgan, the regular deputy, was the most obvious candidate. His cool temperament and the tactical nous had already marked him out as a leader. 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" - a role England struggled to fill for a decade.
