'Hungry' Morgan points to the success of the T20 World Cup for England

CAPE TOWN: England captain Eoin Morgan He says that the hunger to raise trophies has not diminished as a result of the triumph of his team in the 2019 World Cup and has his eyes set on more covered in the shortest form of the game in the coming years.

Morgan will lead England against South Africa in Newlands on Tuesday in his first international one-day since they claimed the World Cup dramatically at Lord's in July, and said the goal now is to make sure that it has not been an exceptional success.

The tourists have rested Ben stokes & Jos Buttler for the three match series against South Africa , two of their most potent weapons, but it is all part of the overall plan.

"Before the next (50-over) World Cup we have two T20 World Cup s that we are eyeing, so this series against South Africa will allow us to build a broader squad so that in three or four years' time we have a substantial group to select from, just like we did before this past World Cup," Morgan told reporters on Monday.

the T20 World Cup It will be played in Australia in October-November, with the next edition scheduled for a year later in India.

" the next three World Cups will be the same, stick to the process by which we are trying to get better the whole time, & that includes younger guys coming through to test older guys who hold the positions at the moment," he added.

Morgan, 33, said he hopes to play in both T20 global finals, but concedes helping England defend their 50-over title in 2023 is less certain.

"I haven't looked that far ahead. I'm looking at the next two T20 World Cup s & I feel I have enough to say I hope to be here for both," he said.

A menudo, cuando tomas la decisión de quedarte más tiempo, se te quita de las manos, así que solo quiero concentrarme en the próximos dos torneos T20.

"Coming back from the five T20 matches we played in New Zealand (in November), I felt physically & mentally very good, so I want to continue with that."

Morgan added that the England team don't dwell on the world champions tag, but that it is good to hear.

"We don't call ourselves that. Everybody refers to us as that, which is awesome. But our goal was to win the World Cup, we managed to achieve that & it was an unbelievable feeling. It has given us the platform to build for next cycle," he said.
