England’s limited-overs skipper and World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan has praised his side’s depth in the white-ball cricket.
His remark comes ahead of the three-match ODI series against Ireland starting from Thursday i.e., July 30. The series will also mark the beginning of ICC World Cup Super League. The World Cup Super League will serve as the qualification of the top 7 teams in the 2023 World Cup to be held in India.
Going into the series, England will be without six players who were a part of the World Cup-winning team in 2019. Despite that, Morgan believes that the side still has depth in playing white-ball cricket.
“There is such a big pool of players who are unbelievably talented,” Morgan said ahead of the 1st ODI on Thursday.
“Yes, we don’t know whether they will succeed in international cricket but you are comfortable selecting them in the squad for if you need them at any stage.” he added.
Morgan also pointed out the abundance and depth in the batting line up of the side from top to the lower order along with some all-rounders who can also bowl and get wickets.
The England skipper also said that winning the World Cup has boosted the confidence of the players immensely and due to that all the players wants to put his best for the side.
“Winning last year has given our guys a huge amount of confidence in the process, strategy and planning we went through over a four-year period,” he said.
“So it allows us to go into every World Cup with that strategy and forward-thinking and contributing along the way the whole time and trying to continually get better.” Morgan concluded.
