‘The ICC World T20 2022 Is A Million Miles Away’-Eoin Morgan Talks About His Sudden Retirement Decision

After announcing his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday, Eoin Morgan was showered with love and praise from the entire cricketing world. Morgan will be remembered as one of the most cherished and revered English players in the history of the sport, and this was made abundantly clear when the cricketing community came together to express their admiration for him.

Morgan finished his career as England’s most successful One-Day International (ODI) captain ever with a record of 76 victories in 126 games and a World Cup under his belt before retiring. He was also a member of the squad that won the Twenty20 World Cup in 2010, and he guided his team to another final in 2016. The southpaw’s impact on the game was vital in transforming the English team into a victorious one and guiding it to ultimate victory in 2019 when it became the first English team to win England’s ICC World Cup.

The powerful batter has explained the rationale for his decision to retire before the Twenty20 World Cup that will take place in Australia in October. He believed that he had reached the end of the road for himself and that the Twenty20 World Cup was too far away for him to compete.

What did Eoin Morgan say?

“It goes against everything that I believe in, and I simply would have felt like a fraud if I had done it. I couldn’t be happier with the choice that I made. The day that it dawned on me, I was emotional, and it was a challenging day, but ever since then, I’ve been really satisfied with my life. I had arrived at the terminus of the path. The World Cup is in October, and the feeling that day seems like a million miles away,” Morgan said.

This English season, the cricketer who was born in Ireland will be joining the commentary team for the men’s white-ball series that will be broadcast on Sky. He went on to say that he wants to be active with English cricket while preparing for an administrative post on the board of directors of the organization. Morgan said, “I don’t spend a lot of time in the boardroom, so I don’t know how it would function. However, I am now doing a course that will enable me to sit on a board at some later.”
