England in India: Eoin Morgan ‘to definitely captain’ short format sides

Eoin Morgan will “definitely” captain England’s short format sides in India despite missing the tour to Bangladesh, assistant coach Paul Farbrace says.

Morgan, 30, opted out of this month’s tour because of security concerns, with Jos Buttler leading the one-day team to a 2-1 series win. England’s next white-ball assignments are three ODIs and three Twenty20s against India starting on 15 January.

“Morgan deserves it. His team is continually improving,” Farbrace said. Opening batsman Alex Hales joined Morgan in missing the Bangladesh tour and the decisions were met with surprise in some quarters, while England director of cricket Andrew Strauss was “disappointed”.(BBC,2016)
