In 2019, the Irishman did something nobody else had been able to achieve - and that's to win the ODI World Cup. In arguably the greatest final of all-time, England defeated New Zealand in the final at Lord's in the Super Over. Morgan - the white ball captain - has since guided England to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup and is now building towards the next T20 tournament in November. Much has been made though - about the lack of runs scored by Morgan and that has been backed up by successive ducks against the Netherlands last week. Below, we take a look at his numbers in ODIs for England.

Last 20 ODIs

100: 1 50: 1 Ducks: 2 Average: 30.27 In Morgan's last 20 ODIs, he has batted on 15 occasions and made just one century and one 50. The only time he hit three figures was against Ireland in August 2020, hitting 106 while his half-century was a knock of 75 not out in a win over Sri Lanka last year. Morgan hit single-digits in nine innings, including three ducks (two vs the Netherlands in 2022 and the other against Ireland in 2020). In his other matches, Morgan got his average up with 45 not out against Australia in the World Cup semi-final while he also scored 42 versus New Zealand in the group stages. While the rest of his scores are low, his two scores of not out helped up his average to just over 30.
