Middlesex batsman Eoin Morgan is all set to return as the captain of the England limited overs series as indicated by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) cricket director Andrew Strauss.

The 30-year-old pulled out of England's tour of Bangladesh in October due to security concerns despite the fixtures given green signal by ECB security delegation team.

In the absence of Morgan, Jos Buttler captained the team and completed a 2-1 series victory against Bangladesh in the ODI series.

Prior to the start of the second Test against India in Vizag in the ongoing series, Strauss stated that Morgan's contribution in rebuilding the limited overs team is immense and he is set to captain the team for the upcoming limited overs series against MS Dhoni's men.

"It was a difficult process leading into the Bangladesh tour, and we told the players there wouldn't be any recriminations for pulling out," Strauss had said.

"I stand by what I said, and there is every reason to expect Eoin Morgan will come back in as captain against India.

"He's done a great job with the one-day team over the last 18 months, and it has been a phenomenal transformation.

"He has to take a lot of credit for that, and we look forward to him continuing that."

England and India are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many Twenty20 Internationals between 15th January and 2nd February.
