England's white-ball captain Eoin Morgan is likely to announce retirement from international cricket

England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan said he can contribute to a World Cup win in Australia. Morgan will take a break from some of the limited-overs games this summer amid concerns over his fitness.

The 35-year-old hasn’t enjoyed the best run with the bat, but he hopes to lead England to a T20 World Cup title. MS Dhoni is the only skipper to hold T20 and 50-over World Cup titles. Morgan is not sure about their 50-overs title defense in 2023.

“That’s a long way away,” he said of the ODI World Cup.

“I need to get to the T20 one first. I am going to take it as it comes.

“At the moment, I feel like I can contribute to England’s World Cup win.”

He suffered a low-grade quadriceps injury in January. “We have some of the games which are back-to-back. I did it in the West Indies where I played on Saturday, Sunday and then injured myself before the game on Wednesday,” he added.

“That happened because of playing back-to-back. So it’s unlikely I will be playing every England game this summer.”
