Eoin Morgan named England captain for ODI and T20I series against India

 

Middlesex batsman Eoin Morgan has reclaimed his position as the captain of the England team for the upcoming One-Day International and Twenty20 International series against India.

Earlier, Morgan pulled out of the limited overs series in Bangladesh in October due to security concerns despite the tour was given a go ahead by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Inspite of his decision to avoid the Bangladesh tour, Morgan had full backing of ECB director of cricket Andrew Strauss, who recently lauded the 30-year-old for his role in the transformation of England's limited over teams.

Apart from Morgan, swashbuckling opening batsman Alex Hales also makes a return and so does Joe Root, who was rested for the Bangladesh ODI series.

The trio will take the place of Ben Duckett, James Vince and Steve Finn from the squad that won the series in Bangladesh by a margin of 2-1.

The T20I squad will see the addition of Chris Jordan and Tymal Mills in the place of Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes, who are part of the ODI squad.

England are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in India between 15th January and 1st February.

England ODI squad:

Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes
