He could prove to be one of England’s weak links in the T20 World Cup 2021 encounter against the West Indies. Although Morgan endured a horror run with the bat in IPL 2021. He did lead the Kolkata Knight Riders into the title. The England captain suggests sitting out England’s first T20 World Cup match. Against India and scored just 10 runs in their next encounter against New Zealand.
“The captain does not have the form. A captain who does not have form at times doesn’t make the right decisions – when you will come to bat, you are saving and hiding yourselves, didn’t play the warm-up match as well,” Chopra said.
Eoin Morgan has said he will not refrain from sitting out. If his indifferent form comes in the way of England’s success. However, he is unlikely to take that call at the start of the competition.
“They [England] don’t have a bowler like Jofra [Archer]. So I will be very intrigued to see how their bowling goes because I am seeing their bowling to be their weak link, whether it is David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, or Chris Jordan,” Aakash Chopra said.
“None of them is a gun death bowler. All of them seem alike to me. None of them has a gun yorker, all bowl short balls, they all bowl more long balls. They take wickets with the new ball but get hit a lot with the old ball. That is the general template that has been created. So they will miss Jofra Archer there,” Chopra added.
Lastly, West Indies will rely a lot on the experience. And then Dwayne Bravo for their death bowling. However, they are likely to miss the services of Sunil Narine. He was in excellent form in the UAE leg of IPL 2021.
