Eoin Morgan Reveals Why The English Players Were Allowed To Participate In The IPL 2019 Before The World Cup 2019

England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan recently revealed why the English players were allowed to participate in the IPL 2019 while the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 was so near.

IPL 2019 was played between 23rd March and 12th May 2019 while England hosted the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 from 30th May to 14th July 2019. Despite the global tournament was near, a total of 11 English players were allowed to feature in the IPL 2019, where some of them were crucial members of the national team.

Recently, Eoin Morgan revealed that the former England captain and former director of England cricket Andrew Strauss planned to send the English players to participate in the IPL 2019 ahead of the CWC 2019. The English limited-overs captain hugely supported it as he felt that it would provide the better World Cup preparation than any international bilateral series, majorly due to the event’s atmosphere.

Morgan recently told Harsha Bhogle on ‘Cricbuzz in Conversation’, “Playing in IPL was part of Strauss’s plan. I pushed him to make that call because in international bilateral series, it’s so difficult to replicate the pressure that’s there in Champions Trophy or the World Cup.”

“He asked me what’s different? One, you play as an overseas player so there’s huge expectations. If you play in IPL, there’s different pressure and different expectation. Sometimes you can’t get away with it and you have to find a way to deal with it.”

While the English all-rounder Ben Stokes didn’t achieve much success in the IPL 2019 serving for Rajasthan Royals (RR), Jonny Bairstow highly impressed with his bat for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Jos Buttler also shined with the bat for Rajasthan Royals. Another Rajasthan Royals cricketer Jofra Archer also bowled well in that tournament.

It takes you out of your comfort zone: Eoin Morgan about the IPL

Morgan, who has already played 52 IPL matches and can return to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the IPL 2020, believes that the cash-rich Indian T20 league takes the players out of their comfort zone which helps the players to grow up.

Morgan added, “It takes you out of your comfort zone. It is completely beneficial to play in IPL. That was a big mindset shift for us. And I hope Indian cricket is alright with us because we are using it as a vehicle to try and grow players.”

In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, though the hosts England faced some tough hurdles, Eoin Morgan-led English team finally managed to secure England’s maiden Cricket World Cup trophy after beating New Zealand in the final of that tournament on the boundary countback rule. Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler etc. all these players successfully performed in that tournament.

Eoin Morgan Reveals Why He Sent Jofra Archer To Bowl In the Super Over During The CWC 2019 Final

England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan, who led the England team to win their maiden Cricket World Cup trophy in the 2019 edition, revealed why he sent the youngster and lesser expereinced Jofra Archer in the Super Over of the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

On 14th July 2019, England and New Zealand met in the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s (London). While New Zealand scored 241/8 (50 overs) in the first innings, England replied with 241 runs (50 overs). Due to the tied result, the match entered to the Super Over.

In the Super Over, after England scored 15/0, Jofra Archer came with the ball to defend it and New Zealand managed to score 15/1. Though the Super Over also had the tied result, England won that final on the boundary count back rule (26–17) and secured the trophy.

Jofra Archer is one of the best death bowlers in the world: Eoin Morgan

Talking about the reason of choosing the youngster Archer for the Super Over, Eoin Morgan claimed that he was one of the best death bowlers in the world and he already proved himself during the tough matches in the IPL, Big Bash Leagues.

Morgan told on ICC podcast titled ‘CWC Rewind’, “I think the obvious answer to choosing Jofra to bowl the super over is that he is one of the best death bowlers in the world. Guys are exposed to perform under high-pressure situations and Jofra has proved at the IPL, Big Bash that he can deliver under pressure. He had played only a dozen of ODI games at that stage, every challenge he had come under, he had thrived to perform in such situations.”

Jofra Archer made his international debut in the same month of the beginning of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 (May 2019). The right-arm fast bowler finished that tournament as England’s most wicket-taker and joint third most wicket-taker in overall (20 wickets).

The England captain also revealed why he decided to send Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes to bat in the Super Over. Earlier, both played the crucial roles in the second innings of the main game (Stokes 89 not out; Buttler 59) and the pitch wasn’t easy to play the big strokes.

Morgan said, “The last couple of balls in the 50-over action, me and Trevor had discussed as to what we will do if the match goes to super over. The wicket was so hard to middle the ball for the batsmen, so we thought Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes were the best batsmen to send to the middle.”

Stokes won the Player of the Match award in that final for his important contribution with the bat during the main game and Super Over.

Nasser Hussain: New Zealand Is A Mirror Image Of Their Skipper Kane Williamson

Former England captain Nasser Hussain praised the New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who didn’t complain after their heartbreaking defeat in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final. Hussain also claimed that the New Zealand team was the mirror image of their skipper.

On 14th July 2019, during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s (London), New Zealand played their second Cricket World Cup final and that was against the hosts England. New Zealand batted first and scored 241/8 (50 overs). In reply, England also scored 241 runs in 50 overs.

During the final over of that second innings, there was one big controversy regarding the six runs, out of which four came after a deflection off English cricketer Ben Stokes‘ bat when he was attempting to reach the crease to complete his second run. According to the Laws of Cricket, it should be 1+4 = 5 rather than 2+4 = 6 as the batsmen had not crossed when the throw was released by New Zealand cricketer Martin Guptill.

While the match entered the Super Over, England scored 15/0 and New Zealand also scored 15/1. Despite that another tied result, England won that final on the boundary countback rule (26-17) and they secured their maiden Cricket World Cup trophy.

After that game, most people of the cricket world were heavily criticising that match-deciding rules after the Super Over tied matches. However, the New Zealand team didn’t react on that decision, rather than, they maintained the spirit of the game and stayed humble till the end.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was heavily praised after that game as he didn’t complain about any decision. After the post-match press conference, Williamson got a standing ovation. His entire team also followed the same path.

There was no animosity between both England and New Zealand: Nasser Hussain

On the one-year anniversary of England’s maiden Cricket World Cup trophy victory, Nasser Hussain praised the Kiwi captain.

In an ICC podcast titled ‘CWC Rewind’, Nasser Hussain said, “To be fair, there was no animosity between both England and New Zealand. We know Kane Williamson and his team were brilliant in their reaction after the 2019 World Cup final ended.

“He (Williamson) did the press that evening and he was so humble in defeat, all the press gave him a standing ovation, Williamson could have complained about so many things, I have not seen anyone complain about that decision. A team ends up as a mirror image of their captain, New Zealand is a mirror image of their skipper Williamson.”

Kane Williamson won the Player of the Tournament award at the end of that tournament for finishing as the fourth most run-scorer in that tournament (578 runs).

Revealed: How Ben Stokes Calmed Down His Nerves Before The Super Over In The World Cup 2019 Final

On 14th July 2019, when England created history by winning their first ICC Cricket World Cup trophy, the all-rounder Ben Stokes played the most crucial role for his team. Recently, it has been revealed how Stokes calmed down his nerves during the break between the main game and Super Over.

It was the Super Sunday where the Lord’s (London) was hosting the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and New Zealand. As both teams had never won the CWC trophy before that tournament, it was a more special day for both the sides.

After winning the toss, New Zealand decided to bat first. The Blackcaps batsmen fought very hard and managed to set the first innings total of 241/8 (50 overs).

In reply, England were losing their wickets at regular intervals before Ben Stokes and wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler secured a solid 110 runs partnership for the fifth wicket. But after Buttler was dismissed on 59 runs, while England hadn’t much overs left, their lower-order batsmen struggled in the death overs. Stokes fought very hard till the end and secured the tied result along with the lower-order batsmen as England were all-out for 241 runs (50 overs). Stokes remained not out on 84 runs off 98 balls (5 fours and 2 sixes).

Ben Stokes lights up a cigarette and has few minutes on his own

As the match entered the Super Over, the teams got a little break before the beginning of the Super Over. During that tensed moment, Stokes reportedly smoked to make himself calm down. ‘Morgan’s Men: The Inside Story of England’s Rise from Cricket World Cup Humiliation to Glory’ – this newly released book has revealed that incident, which was written by Nick Hoult and Steve James.

According to stuff.co.nz, that book claimed, “Lord’s is a cacophony of noise. Music is blaring out of the public address system and the atmosphere is raw as the World Cup final comes down to a Super Over. Twelve balls will settle a seven-week tournament and decide the legacy of this England team.

“Finding a quiet spot as the frenzy of the Super Over approached was hard in a ground packed out with 27,000 supporters and television cameras following the players from the middle, through the Long Room and up the stairs to the dressing room.

“But Ben Stokes had played at Lord’s many times. He knows every nook and cranny. As Eoin Morgan tries to bring calm to the England dressing room and sort out their tactics, Stokes nips off for a moment of peace.

“He is covered in dirt and sweat. He has batted for two hours and 27 minutes of unbelievable tension. What does Stokes do? He goes to the back of the England dressing room, past the attendant’s little office and into the showers. There he lights up a cigarette and has few minutes on his own.”

In the Super Over, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler helped the England team to score 15/0. Then, while Jofra Archer was bowling for England in the Super Over, New Zealand batsmen (Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill) managed to score 15/1.

Despite another tied result in the Super Over, England won that match on the boundary countback rule and finally registered their name to the list of the Cricket World Cup winners. Undoubtedly, Stokes won the Player of the Match award in that historic game.

Eoin Morgan Reveals His Feeling During The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Final

Today (14th July 2020) is the one-year anniversary of England’s first-ever ICC Cricket World Cup victory as they won that tournament in the 2019 edition at the Lord’s cricket ground. On this special occasion, the England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan shared his experience during that World Cup final.

On 14th July 2019, the hosts England faced New Zealand in the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s (London). As both teams didn’t win the Cricket World Cup trophy earlier, it was surely the big day for both the sides.

The final was a very tight game as New Zealand scored 241/8 (50 overs) in the first innings while England replied with 241 all out (50 overs). Due to that tie result, the final entered to the Super Over, where England scored 15/0 and New Zealand replied with 15/1. Despite that tie result in the Super Over, England finally won that match on the boundary countback rule and secured their first-ever Cricket World Cup trophy.

Talking about that thrilling World Cup final match experience, English skipper Eoin Morgan revealed one of his moments where he felt that they were dead and buried.

Morgan said according to ESPNcricinfo, “There’s only one (moment of doubt) for me and it probably came to me the second time I watched it. Jimmy Neesham’s bowling to Ben, he bowls a slower ball, Ben hits it down to long-on and I remember the ball being in the air …,

“And it’s gone high and not quite as long as he’d liked and for a minute I just thought ‘That’s it, it’s over, Ben’s out, we still need 15 an over’ – that’s when I thought for a split second we were dead and buried.”

The final is actually, it’s bigger than cricket: Eoin Morgan about the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

At first, Ben Stokes secured the tie result with his incredible knock of 84 not out off 98 balls. Then, after Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes set the 15 runs on the board in the Super Over, the young fast bowler Jofra Archer ensured that the Blackcaps didn’t cross the 15 runs mark anyway. Morgan feels that the final was bigger than cricket.

He added, “The final is actually, it’s bigger than cricket. It’s actually propelled up as one of the highlights of a sporting day ever in British history that will be around for a very long time so it was probably more satisfying that it will continue to be like that.”

Eoin Morgan’s next goal

Morgan has now shifted his goal to win the next two T20 World Cups. According to the schedule, Australia will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 and India will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. Though the 2020 edition is highly doubtful due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is still in the plan due to the International Cricket Council (ICC) hasn’t postponed this tournament yet.

The English captain feels that winning both the upcoming T20 World Cups will be the bigger achievement than winning their maiden ICC Cricket World Cup trophy.

Morgan said, “There hasn’t been a team who have held T20 and 50-over World Cups so that would be a nice challenge. But, realistically, probably out of the next two World Cups, winning one of them would be unbelievable. To win two would be a bigger achievement than winning the 50-over World Cup. Just because both of them are away from home and would favour Australia in Australia and India in India, so you would have to win both of them to top the 50-overs win.”

England, who won their first ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy in the 2010 edition in West Indies, was so close to winning it for the second time under Eoin Morgan’s leadership in the 2016 edition in India, where they just lost the final against West Indies.

Ravindra Jadeja Reacts On The One Year Anniversary Of India’s Exit From ICC CWC 2019

While the exciting ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is still fresh in our memory, Friday (10th July) was the one-year anniversary of India’s elimination from that tournament in the semi-final. Indian cricketer Ravindra Jadeja, who played a significant role in that game, reacted on Friday on the mark one-year anniversary of that match.

The two-time World Cup winners India were one of the favourites to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. India also played dominantly in the League Stage of that tournament as they finished on top of the points table with 15 points after winning seven out of nine matches (lost once and one had no result).

In the first semi-final of that tournament, India met the fourth-placed team in the final points table New Zealand at Old Trafford (Manchester), which was originally scheduled on 9th July 2019. After winning the toss, when New Zealand were batting on 211/5 in 46.1 overs, the rain interrupted that game and forced the game to move on the next day (10th July), which was the official reserve-day of that match.

The Indian team restricted New Zealand to 239/8 (50 overs) in the early period of the reserve day. In reply, the Indian team had a horrific start as all the first three batsmen (Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli) were dismissed after scoring just one run each. The struggling period was continuing for the Indian team as they were battling on 5/3, 24/4, 71/5 and 92/6.

While MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja were the last hopes for the Indian team, they batted impressively, and they were slowly stretching the scoreboard to the target. Dhoni and Jadeja brilliantly put the 116 runs partnership for the seventh wicket and that partnership brought back the hope of the Indian fans.

In the 48th over, when the left-handed batsman Jadeja scored 77 runs off just 59 balls (4 fours and 4 sixes), he was caught out at the long-off by the Kiwi captain Kane Williamson.

Just a few balls later of that big wicket, New Zealand cricketer Martin Guptill brilliantly ran out another Indian set batsman MS Dhoni (50 runs off 72 balls), who was famous for very successful finishing, and that run out opened up the chance for New Zealand’s victory. Finally, the Blackcaps won that match by 18 runs after bowling out the Indian team for 221 runs (49.3 overs).

One of the saddest days: Ravindra Jadeja

On the one-year anniversary of that game, Ravindra Jadeja tweeted, “We try our best but still fall short sometimes ? One of the saddest days! #oneyearagotoday”

Ravindra Jadeja only played two matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. However, the all-rounder still put a special mark in that tournament with his impressive fielding, which he always maintained as a substitute fielder. But that semi-final knock took him to the special position in the cricket world.

That semi-final game was also the last recognised cricket match for MS Dhoni, who then has continuously made himself unavailable for the selection in the Indian team. Though he was ready to return to the IPL 2020 as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the postponement of this tournament amid coronavirus outbreak has forced to delay his return to the game.

Nasser Hussain Reckons Wrong Selection Of Players Is The Reason For India’s Failure In ICC Tournaments

England former captain Nasser Hussain believes that wrong selection of players in Team India for their reason for failure in ICC tournaments. He also opined that India’s top-order strength has left the middle-order untested in tough situations as it happened in the ICC World Cup 2019 against New Zealand in the disheartening semi-final.

Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India won all the group stage matches expect against England before losing to Blackcaps in the semi-final of the ICC World Cup last year. India had an unusual fall of top-order as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul lost their wickets for three runs. However, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni tried to pull the game but failed to lead the team to across the line as India lost the marquee clash by 18 runs 

India’s loss in the World Cup was attributed to team management’s failure in finding an appropriate No. 4 batsman. If middle-order had handled the pressure on that day, the Men in Blue might have qualified for the grand finale.

Nasser Hussain blames India’s team selection and excellent top-order for failure:

Nasser Hussain also finds the fault in India’s team selection for their downfall in ICC mega-events. He said that the team should not only prepare game plans but also should have the right members to execute them.

“I would say the selection is where India has gone wrong over the ICC tournaments, adapting to conditions a little bit. So it’s not just about having one game plan,” former England captain Nasser Hussain, one of the most respected voices in the game, told Star Sports’ ‘Cricket Connected’.

“Adapting to conditions, if it’s nibbling around (ball swinging) and if you are in a World Cup semi-final against New Zealand and it’s doing a little bit, where is your middle-order if you are 20 for 2 and Kohli and Sharma are out?” Hussain questioned.

Further, he mentions that India’s top-order has century-makers which give fewer opportunities to middle-order batsmen to test themselves in crunch situations which according to Nasser is another fault in the Indian cricket. 

“It could almost be a fault of Indian cricket that they are too good at the top of the order. When it’s good and flat, okay Kohli hundred, Sharma hundred, hundreds at the top and lads in the middle order don’t get a hit,” he commented.

Meanwhile, later this year, India would participate in the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia. It would be interesting to witness who Virat Kohli-led side to cope up with the challenges they faced last year.
