Eoin Morgan, the World Cup-winning captain of England, will call it quits from all forms of international cricket on Tuesday (June 28). His outstanding white-ball career, during which he amassed over 10,000 runs in ODIs and T20Is, will come to an end.

The 35-year-old Morgan had previously stated his intention to captain England at the next T20 World Cup in Australia, but it is believed that he has decided to retire from international cricket due to mounting worries about his health and form. The explosive middle-order batsman has only produced two half-centuries in his past 28 appearances for England.

Morgan scored 7701 runs in ODIs, of which 6957 came after he switched from supporting Ireland to England in 2009. Although it continues to be the greatest total for England in ODI cricket, his seven-year leadership reign, which revolutionized the nation’s white-ball game, will ultimately be what defines his legacy.

Just before the 2015 World Cup, he succeeded Alastair Cook as captain. However, the real job of transformation began after England’s elimination against Bangladesh. England put up a group of power hitters under Morgan and later coach Trevor Bayliss who consistently blasted 300+ scores. Everything culminated in a stunning World Cup victory in 2019 at Lord’s.

Morgan served as captain 126 times in ODI matches and an additional 72 times in T20I matches. He has served as England’s captain in two T20 World Cups, but both in 2016 (runners-up) and 2022, a championship run evaded his team by narrow margins (semifinalists). Jos Buttler, who has been Morgan’s assistant since 2015 and has captained the squad 13 times, is most likely to do so for their next game against India.
