Cricket WC 2023: England a ‘sinking ship’ says Eoin Morgan
Eoin Morgan, former captain of England, says the team must take responsibility for its poor performance at the World Cup.
It is unlikely that the holders, who played the Netherlands on Wednesday, will make the semi-finals after losing six of their seven matches.
Normally it is the captain, coach or senior player who speaks to the media before a match, such as the Netherlands match in Pune.
Morgan was surprised and shocked by what happened.
When you sit in meetings as a leader, captain, or head coach, keep in mind the thought process that goes behind it.
The decisions are made on the side. There must be absolute clarity and direction when things are going wrong.
“You need to face the truth.”
They have struggled throughout their time in India, with their only victory coming against Bangladesh.
As a result of Australia’s defeat on Saturday, Morgan’s title defense in 2019 was mathematically over.
Last year, Morgan retired, leaving Jos Buttler to take over as captain under Matthew Mott.
Currently, the ship is sinking, and people must take responsibility, Morgan said.
In the aftermath of England’s early exit from the 2015 World Cup, Morgan adopted an aggressive approach.
The last thing you want to do is play against a team like England that is going to come out with all guns blazing.
