England legend Eoin Morgan announces retirement from cricket

Eoin Morgan, who captained England to 2019 World Cup victory, has officially announced his retirement from all forms of Cricket.

Morgan played over 350 matches internationally for both England and Ireland, retiring as the all-time leading run scorer for England in ODI cricket with 6,957. He also retires as one of only three men to captain England to a World Cup victory, joining Paul Collingwood and Jos Buttler, who both won the T20 World Cup.

In a statement on his social media, Morgan said: “It is with great pride that I am announcing my retirement from all forms of Cricket. I believe that now is the right time to step away from the game that has given me so much.”

Morgan masterminded England’s white-ball revolution, overseeing a transition from a team that had crashed out of the 2015 World Cup following a defeat to Bangladesh, into a side that won the competition just four years later.
