England’s limited overs captain Eoin Morgan is excited for his return to the national side, after last playing against Australia in the ODI’s in September. Morgan, who was injured against Australia after getting hit by a bouncer from Mitchell Starc, is now completely fit, and raring to go against Pakistan in UAE.

Morgan spoke about the same incident and said, “At the time, it was quite concerning.” “The ball hit me quite hard. It was quite a good delivery. I’ve watched it back a number of times. But I still look back at it now – and hats off, it was a pretty good delivery.”

“I did change the helmet during the series against Australia. I got hit on the neck at Lord’s and wasn’t wearing a neck guard, I changed to a new helmet.  “It’s a personal opinion, I feel more protected with the neck guard that they have, so I went for the full helmet. I’ve had scans on my head to have a mould for my own helmet, which I’m wearing now, so I’ve come with that.”

 

 

Morgan also said that he has practiced against short pitched bowling in the nets. “I’ve done a lot of short-ball practice since then. I’m quite confident going into this series that I’ve progressed. “It’s worrying, to be honest, because the feeling of concussion is something I’ve never had before.”

Speaking about England’s recent turnaround in limited overs cricket, Morgan said, “That’s one thing we’ve gained over the last six months. We’ve created an atmosphere in which learning becomes very easy for our young guys coming in. Probably, no one would have given us a hope in hell against Australia and New Zealand. But they were two very competitive series, and we managed to turn over New Zealand.”
