“Our bowling was exceptional”- Eoin Morgan credits his fast bowlers for win in 3rd T20I




England Captain Eoin Morgan he credited his fast bowlers for winning eight teams against his team India in the third T20I in Ahmedabad. Mark Wood and Jofra Archer upset the Indian striker early on as the hosts were limited to 24-3 in the first six outs.

It was difficult for the Indian batsman to adjust to the pace of the wicket at first. Mark Wood and Jofra Archer, at a fast pace, hurried the Indian hitters by bowling a good line and length.

Speaking after England’s all-encompassing victory, Eoin Morgan he felt that his bowlers were exceptional in the first ten broadcasts of the Indian inning:

“When they accelerated in particular, the three (Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and Chris Jordan) in front, carried that threat throughout the game. Our guys enjoy when there is a bit of pace and bouncing. I thought the first half of our bowling was exceptional. Lines , the lengths of the bowling, the plans we had and obviously taking early goalkeepers against such a long line-up to make a difference make a big difference, ”Eoin Morgan said at the presentation ceremony after the match.

The draw was the deciding factor in this series as all three games saw the winning team continue to win the game. However, Eoin Morgan felt that the pitch in the third ODI had not changed drastically during the match.

“Today, probably of all the games, wicket has remained pretty similar, but we think it’s another challenge as we set the total. Especially when there’s one short side of the ground. You just don’t know what a good score it will be.” remarked the English captain.

So he’s the best in the world when it comes to opening You still have little to say to Jos.
