CSK Star Compared Eoin Morgan To MS Dhoni. Moeen Ali, who has played under both Eoin Morgan and MS Dhoni as captains, compared the two World Cup-winning captains.
Eoin Morgan announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday, prompting tributes from all over the world. Morgan hung up his boots after leading England to the World Cup title in 2019. England all-rounder Moeen Ali praised Morgan, calling him the country’s “greatest white-ball captain ever.” Moeen, who has played under Morgan’s and former India captain MS Dhoni’s captaincy, compared the leadership styles of both players, saying there isn’t much difference in their approach.
“I’ve played for him (Morgan). I’ve also played for MS Dhoni. In terms of personality, there isn’t much difference between them – both are very calm and loyal to their players. Captain and player both excel “Moeen Ali, who plays for the Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, stated this during an interview with Sports Tak.
Eoin Morgan Is Compared To MS Dhoni
“He (Morgan) has almost brought England back from the brink of disaster. We were terrible in white-ball cricket before that, and he changed the players’ mindset. Actually, England’s performance in Test cricket is due to him. He demonstrated that if you have the right mindset, you can play fearless cricket, as we are doing now. We’ve never had a better white-ball captain than him “Mooen added
Morgan is widely credited with bringing about a significant change in the way England played white-ball cricket. Under his captaincy, England won the 50-over World Cup in 2019 and advanced to the finals of the 2016 T20 World Cup.
The team also advanced to the semi-finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy and the 2021 T20 World Cup. The now 35-year-old made his ODI debut for Ireland in 2006, and his T20 debut came four years later, in 2009, while playing for England.
Morgan, who began his international career with Ireland, has 225 ODIs and 115 T20Is for England, a record for the Three Lions.
He has scored 7,701 runs in 248 One-Day Internationals at an average of 39.29, with 14 centuries and 47 fifties. He has also scored 2,458 runs in 115 Twenty20 Internationals.
Morgan’s Test statistics are a little underwhelming, as he was sidelined after scoring 700 runs at an average of 30.43 in 16 Tests.
