Cap­tain Mor­gan should be axed

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Of Sport -

I’m glad Eoin Mor­gan (above) has de­cided not to travel to Bangladesh with Eng­land. His form has long de­manded he be dropped as a player. He ap­pears to have sur­vived this long be­cause of some mis­taken be­lief he’s the best Eng­land skip­per since Mike Brear­ley. Ir­ish­man Mor­gan doesn’t take his cap­taincy du­ties se­ri­ously enough to sing the na­tional an­them. He’s not a lot dif­fer­ent to Kevin Pi­etersen in adopt­ing Eng­land as a way to im­prove his ca­reer and earn a pot of money. Mor­gan now dabs and pushes while the likes of Jos But­tler and Ben Stokes flay and carve. He pfaffs and fid­gets and plays with­out con­vic­tion. Eng­land should have rid them­selves of this self­ish char­ac­ter months ago. They have no ex­cuse to keep him now.
