World Cup winner England captain Eoin Morgan is set to announce his retirement from international cricket.

The PA news agency understands that Morgan, 35, will officially announce the time of his career in England on Tuesday, with Josh Butler ready to take over as captain of Twenty20 and ODI.

Morgan, who oversaw the transformation of the England team with a white ball from also champions in 2015 to world champions 50 at Lord’s four years later, has been struggling for form and fitness lately.

He drove a series of one-day races in the Netherlands this month, but the issues of his duel were revealed as he was sent off twice for nothing in high-scoring matches before losing the final game to an inguinal country.

Morgan had hoped to stay on track for a final incline at the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia this October, a final chance to unify the two biggest cricket trophies, but has now accepted that his time is up.

Butler’s first mission will be a series of high-profile attacks against India, including three T20s and three ODIs, starting July 7, ahead of its own in South Africa.

Dublin-born Morgan began his international career with his hometown of Ireland in 2006, but changed his faith in England in 2009, citing his lifelong desire to play Cricket Test.

The left-hander played 16 Tests, scoring for two centuries, but did not place himself in the five-day squad and continued to be considered a specialist in limited overs.

As a brilliant and innovative stroke maker, he was ahead of his time and a catapult at the helm when Sir Alastair Cook was fired on the eve of the 2015 World Cup.

The tournament was a failure, with England eliminated in the group stage, but Morgan was recognized by then-cricket manager Sir Andrew Strauss as the man to restart a sick team.

Taking the lead alongside new coach Trevor Bayliss, who acted more as a facilitator for Morgan’s ideas, introduced a new generation of players and established England as the model for attacking cricket over limited.

The project culminated dramatically at the home of cricket in 2019, with the heroism of Ben Stokes and a super super draw against New Zealand in the World Cup final, as England triumphed in the countdown.

The success consolidated Morgan’s position among the pantheon of the greatest leaders in English sport, but it also leaves a significant legacy as a player. He retires as a record player of the day and T20 of the country, with 6,957 and 2,458 in the respective teams.

A Yorkshire man is talking!

Colleague Rob Bagchi, who was born and raised in the hands of God, etc., makes the following assessment of the prospects today:

“I can not see England missing the chance here. Not the way they hit last night. The kiwis looked great, although Boult and Southee were great. If they move under the clouds they might have a chance, but “These young Dukes are not well.”

Day five in Leeds

Good morning and welcome to our live blog England vs New Zealand, it is the third Test of the series of course and very likely to see results today. England continue at Headingley on 183/2, chasing 296 to win. The men who did not go out overnight are Joe Root, 55 * and Ollie Pope, 81 *. England have scored in a good clip so far, making just 39 overs to collect this score, for the defeat of Alex Lees and Zak Crawley. The second finished the first.

Much has been said and written about restoring England’s red ball and putting Ben Stokes in charge and Brendon McCullum in charge. Surely this series could hardly have gone better. Exciting cricket and victories from places that seemed very difficult. If they win this test today, having answered 55/6 at 329, it will be another great victory.

Personally, I have a disturbing suspicion that New Zealand is something of a cut-off opponent for England. England tends to fight against teams at a high pace, with wrist or mysterious rotation and with many aggressive, aggressive characters in their ranks who can intimidate some of our noblest souls. Kiwis have none of the above, and you’re also wondering about the McCullum factor, having a legend in your game training (and strategizing) against you. Yet. They came here as World Test champions and, in all likelihood, they go home having whitewashed 3-0, and you can not say fairer than that from the POV of England.

We will explore the new era, how it goes and what it all means all morning. The game is scheduled to start at 11 a.m., but there is some rain around Leeds. The forecast for later in the day is better, so we should, at some point, see a victory for England. If you calculate that kiwis can take the eight wickets, you can support it around 22/1. The tie is about 20/1.
