Eoin Morgan – keep him at five or six

Eoin Morgan plays an unmental shotEoin Morgan can play mental reverse sweeps and ping shots into someone’s picnic off the weighty part of his bat, but we’re most impressed by the fact that he seems largely unarsed about playing international cricket.

He plays straight, he wanders down the pitch, maybe he edges the ball, but whatever he’s doing, he looks pretty certain of himself.

England will be tempted to shunt him further up the order as the years pass. They shouldn’t. The top order will come to enjoy having an Eoin cushion and it will help them bat.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. The last player you complimented for being unarsed was Ravi Bopara, and as soon as you said it he got himself a huge arse, mistook it for his elbow, and became Crap At All Forms Of International Cricket.

    There is a dark side to your power, KC. Use it wisely.
