Why Eoin Morgan is not playing for England in T20 World Cup 2022 ?

The fans will not be able to see Eoin Morgan playing for England again because the former English captain has already taken retirement from international cricket. On June 28, 2022 Morgan took the surprising decision to end 16 years long career. He played 16 Tests, 248 ODIs and 115 T20 Internationals for England and Ireland. He finished his career as the highest run-scorer for England in ODIs (6957) and T20Is (2458). The greatest achievement of his career is that he led England to its maiden ODI World Cup title in 2019.

It is true that Morgan led his team to the glory of World Cup but after that he was struggling a lot to score runs. He was in the team just because he was the skipper. As a player, he was struggling to find his place in the playing eleven. With so many explosive players in the team like Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, there was no place for Eoin Morgan in the T20 side.
