The World Cup final was the most dramatic game, it helped cricket break out of the normal bubble: Eoin Morgan
NEW DELHI: pattern of limited England Eoin Morgan He regards the 2019 World Cup Final as the most dramatic cricket game ever played, and says it helped the sport grow out of the normal bubble and raised its profile.
England were awarded to the World Cup winners over 50 years ago last year based on their upper limit count after the epic final against New Zealand, and also the resulting Super Super, ended in a draw in the Lord's in London.
The final was the most dramatic cricket game and the best cricket game likely to have been played, contributing to the hype, Morgan said, cited by Calcutta Knight Riders on the official website on the side.
It was a historic day for sports in general, since Novak Djokovic sharp Roger Federer In an epic clash of the Wimbledon summit a few miles away, it is considered the longest final in the history of the prestigious tennis tournament.
I think one of the best things was the day of that great game of cricket, it was always associated with the longest Wimbledon final that was also epic, Morgan said.
It helped us grow cricket out of the normal bubble we're already in before a different audience, and for us at home it has raised the profile of the game like we've never seen before.
England had crashed into the group stage of the 2015 World Cup and Morgan said it was an incredible journey the team went through from that shameful defeat to reach the pinnacle of world cricket after four years.
I think the journey we took is probably the most exciting. In 2015, the shameful nature in which we parted ways with that World Cup and the journey we undertook to try to change the brand of cricket we played with a new group of extremely talented players over the course of 4 years, is brilliant, he said.
The mere fact of being able to transmit some of my knowledge and experience together with some high-level players and a group of great support staff who always continue to question what we do in a good way to hold ourselves accountable. Somehow it culminated in the last World Cup of the year.
Morgan would have been playing with KKR captain Dinesh Karthik if the 13th IPL was not postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ODI England captain praised Karthik and said he is eager to choose his brain.
I have talked to DK a lot and met him just before Christmas when he was in Mumbai. He's a fantastic guy, a great cricketer, and I'm looking forward to helping him in any way I can, said Morgan, who has embraced the kitchen and is spending time with his newborn baby during this time of global health crisis.
While I'm here to help, I also want to learn as much as I can from him. There are so many dynamics about being a captain when you play in India that I don't know, I'm going to be picking up your brain all the time.
He said it will be fascinating to see how and when the competition is aligned.
Because everyone is going to come out of isolation extremely excited, preparing to go, hitting, bowling, playing the whole field.
