Last quote by Eoin Morgan

The city T20 competition is going to have a huge impact on our game. That should allow us to prepare for what's going to happen with the players, to recognise that, yes, the formats are going to get further and further apart. So we should build them both hand in hand, alongside each other, to protect Test cricket. I think that's very important because if we don't do something about it in England, who is?feedback

This page is completely dedicated to what Eoin Morgan has to say. All of Eoin Morgan’s quotes are organized here by date and topic. The most recent quote attributed to Eoin Morgan came from an article called T20 evolution must work in tandem with protection of Test cricket: “Sunil Narine comes from tape ball. That's where he learned all his tricks and now his fingers are so strong from squeezing the tennis ball to get spin on it. In the next five years you will see a Sunil Narine playing for England or a guy with a Lasith Malinga action because they played tape ball cricket. That's the beauty of it. It's instant, it's fast, there's no barriers, everyone can play it.”.

Jun 21 2017

I thought we were excellent. We got early wickets and managed to contain them. I was impressed with our spinners, who never let them get away.They [Crane and Dawson] managed to tie down one of the best players of this generation [de Villiers].feedback

Jun 20 2017

It's exciting. He has all the tricks: googly, slider. I played against him last year [for Middlesex], and Brendon McCullum got hold of him a couple of times. As a youngster, normally you bowl one bad over to a guy like that, and you're taken off. But he still had tricks to come back with. That impressed me. He's still very young, but we want to see what he's about.feedback

Jun 20 2017

A lot of the stuff that we're doing is right. Going into the semi-final we talked about adapting to the wicket, but changing that mindset didn't happen. That's a huge area for us to work on. We let ourselves down.feedback

Jun 14 2017

I don't think there was any home advantage. We were not over-confident. Knowing we were going to play on a used wicket potentially brought Pakistan's game closer to their home [conditions]. So it was a big challenge and one that was too far for us.feedback

Jun 14 2017

We left ourselves short adapting to conditions. It's a big frustration because I think we've played some great cricket in this tournament and we weren't anywhere close to it today. Fair credit to Pakistan, they played brilliantly.feedback

Jun 11 2017

His potential is through the roof.feedback

Jun 10 2017

The thing that we emphasise is that we believe his score is around the corner. Let's hope it's tomorrow.feedback

Jun 10 2017

We'll have whip round! I don't think Dave will be short.feedback

Jun 10 2017

If you can demonstrate what you're trying to say and achieve and you go and achieve that, I think it goes a long way within a side.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I've been in a position where I haven't played in Ashes cricket, and certainly there are other guys down in the changing room (in the same situation). If you never get to play in an Ashes game, this is the closest you will ever get to beating an Australia team. I say things in selection meetings or meetings that we have as a team, and they might be a bit far-fetched - but when we back them up as a side, they're not. I think that builds trust within a group.feedback

Jun 10 2017

But certainly, I think at the moment people take my views with a bit more of a backing as opposed to maybe when I first started with no games under my belt.feedback

Jun 10 2017

If we're looking to win this tournament and go beyond and win the World Cup, we need to be beating the best sides in the world - and Australia at the moment are one of them.feedback

Jun 06 2017

We were 10-15 runs below par given that 320 is a par score regardless of the game conditions these days. We looked like getting 340 but fell away which is disappointing but the fact we are trying to win games with the bat regardless of the situation is testament to this team. We are staying true to what we believe in.feedback

Jun 06 2017

We will have a very serious attitude and we never take any position for granted. If we are truly going to be contenders for this tournament we need to beat the best teams and Australia are among the best teams in white ball tournaments. To go into a game like that with no attitude other than winning is very important to us. The bowlers were the highlight of the day. I thought as a collective unit they were brilliant.feedback

Jun 05 2017

Jason has obviously lacked runs lately, but certainly we feel everybody on the team, the squad, back room staff, feel that a score for Jason is around the corner. Every game presents a huge opportunity. I think it is different to playing in series where one team might have the wood over you, you actually come up against different oppositions that approach things differently.feedback

Jun 05 2017

But when we can't we go for a guy we can throw the ball to at any stage in order to try to make an impact on the game. And Finny is one of those guys. I'd have no hesitation in playing him tomorrow if we felt it was the right thing to do.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - World Cup

If you look at the top four teams that got to the semi-final stage in the World Cup, they all seemed to score regular totals over 350. So I think they've contributed to the change as a whole.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Bangladesh

I think he's very close to full fitness. He came through the other day [when England played Bangladesh at The Oval], bowling more overs [seven] than we intended. But I think we're nearly there. He's had no pain in five days now. So, if that continues, there's a chance he may bowl 10 overs.feedback

Jun 05 2017

Adil is quite relaxed about things. Everybody wants to play, all 15. It's not easy leaving guys out sometimes. We select the man we think is the best chance of winning that particular game.feedback

Jun 05 2017

The way New Zealand went about playing their cricket was probably closer to the way we go about it now. We have very similar characteristics and values as a side and it's probably the easiest relate to them out of those four teams that made the later stages. I think the dominant factor with New Zealand was that they had that crucial confidence within the group at the time, whereas we didn't have it.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I thought he was terribly unlucky. It was quite smart ... and brave. It was a big gamble. But that sort of stuff can happen. You can get out in that sort of fashion when you're short on runs. But yeah, certainly we believe in him.feedback

Jun 01 2017

He's obviously been very impressive for us over the last couple of years, and a mainstay, very reliable guy. And it is a worry when he goes off the field and can't come back on and bowl. Side strains are a big confidence thing. He would definitely be a loss if he couldn't play. Potentially Woakes is a worry for the rest of the tournament. We have to wait and see. Ben Stokes has bowled seven overs which we thought was a stretch for him but he hasn't felt his knee all day.feedback

Jun 01 2017

If you're looking for positives out of it, it certainly was a wake-up call in the fact that you need to be able to adapt in different circumstances. It's about delivering in every game.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Bangladesh

Ben Stokes has had a little bowl today. We will see how he pulls up tomorrow to see how much he will bowl but I certainly see him bowling.feedback

May 31 2017

One of the strongest parts of reinforcing the freedom in which we play is backing that up with selection. If we want our players to play cagey, yes, we would change things and probably half of us wouldn't be here. Jason really epitomises the way that we play; the aggression in which he plays, he always plays for the team, and he plays in a manner that is dictated by that. He's a very important part of our side.feedback

May 31 2017

Roy will definitely play. The decision will remain the same throughout the tournament. Jason Roy is part of our strong opening partnership with Alex Hales. I cannot see it changing.feedback

May 29 2017

We're trying to build it up again with the Champions Trophy in mind. It's a very strange injury, he aggravates it when he bowls, in his delivery stride. He's good to play as a batsman if need be but obviously we want Ben Stokes the all-rounder.feedback

May 13 2017

Ideally I would love to bat at five. I would love to have the responsibility with the batting. I batted at five in the winter, and did well, then got pushed up to number four. I know I played some stinking shots at times, but that's part of my batting.feedback

May 08 2017

I think Sam is rediscovering the word 'petrified'. That is not true at all. We are not favourites. We went to India in January and didn't win, we lost our last series to Australia [at home in 2015]. We need to beat big sides to earn that right and the guys know that in the changing room.feedback

May 08 2017

I think everybody is aware of the capabilities that we do have and I think that creates a different challenge when playing against us. Everybody enjoys bowling first now and if you lose the toss and bat you're not sure what a good total is. We're becoming one of those sides that you don't know how good a score is because of how deep we bat.feedback

May 03 2017

Rubbing shoulders with the best names in the world, outperforming them or growing in confidence from playing with them are two things he'll have in abundance when he comes back. It makes us grow as a group, knowing we have a player who potentially is the best in the world. That's huge.feedback

Mar 30 2017

I gave them my experience of playing T20 around the world. I have played six years of IPL [Indian Premier League], three of the Big Bash and various others. This last year and a half the impact the Big Bash has had has been phenomenal.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Brexit

I compare it to Brexit. We've made a decision – let's get on with it. We've seen these vehicles work well round the world. T20 is here to stay. It should protect the whole game. It's not in anyone's interest to see counties go out of business. The best players in fewer teams, in front of big audiences in big stadiums and watched by bigger TV audiences, can only be good for the game. If we're to get this through, which I think we have, let's stop talking about why it's not going to work and how we can make it work as well as anywhere in the world.feedback

Mar 30 2017

I don't think it will damage county cricket at all. It's not a gamble. It's proven in other countries that it is possible to have it all. We are never going to lose our core cricket fans. And so even if this doesn't work, we can always go back. Although I think it will. Change is always difficult but I don't see this as change. It probably should have happened a while ago. The purpose of this tournament will be to grow the game. The age groups and young families the Big Bash engages with, the numbers are through the roof.feedback

Mar 30 2017

I think so, when you have big stars playing. People want to see the best against the best.feedback

Mar 05 2017

Potentially yes ... I don't know if Halesy is fit (yet).feedback

Mar 05 2017

He's trained again [on Friday], so it will all depend on how he's pulled up, particularly from catching and impact on the hand.feedback

Mar 05 2017

But I thought we were relentless in making them hit cross-bat shots into the wind. I thought it was an outstanding performance from the seamers.feedback

Mar 05 2017

Absolutely - that was evident. We took three early wickets, and they managed to rebuild. That's what experienced sides do and credit to them they did it.feedback

Mar 05 2017

I thought (our bowlers) were brilliant, in conditions that don't necessarily suit us - particularly our seamers, we're normally guilty of bowling a little bit fuller and potentially chasing wickets.feedback

Mar 05 2017

It's a learning curve for us. But I think once a partnership gets going, we can still implement our own game.feedback
