Busy schedule suits Morgan
Eoin Morgan is excited about the prospect of England concentrating on one-day cricket in the next six months. England are not scheduled to play a Test match until early July when they take on South Africa and they face one-day games against India, West Indies, Ireland and the Proteas before the Champions Trophy gets underway in June. England can be backed at 7/2 to win the Champions Trophy outright.
Morgan opted to miss the recent tour to Bangladesh but is looking forward to a hectic schedule between now and July, starting with the first one-day international against India on Sunday, which England are 6/4 to win. "I'm really excited about the series and the next five or six months, which is going to be a big part in our build-up towards the 2019 World Cup," said Morgan. "It's exciting that we only have white-ball cricket between now and then and everyone in the group is as excited as I am. India's a tough place to come and adapt and perform at the skill level that is required to win a series so that will be great preparation."
