England white-ball captain has warned that organisations around the world must not grow unchecked, leading to the death of Test Cricket. Morgan will captain the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL before leading the London Spirit in the Hundred. He then will lead the English at 2021 World Twenty20.
“Ultimately younger players always give you a great insight into where cricket is at right now,” said Morgan. “Our youngest, best talents coming through like our Sam Curran or India’s Shubman Gill who are coming in and starting out on their journey in international cricket are really prioritising Test match cricket.”
Morgan said that cricket his biggest worry is that the game isn’t changing and accommodating the pace at which it is growing. He expressed concern about how some countries cannot play their best Xi’s because their players are competing in various leagues around the world.
“Whoever is in charge needs to think about what that looks like in 10 years’ time because if they don’t manage it, franchise leagues around the world will become more dominant,” he added.
