New Delhi. England’s world-winning captain Eoin Morgan may retire from international cricket soon. The England team is currently leading Team India on its soil. England have to play a series of three ODIs and three T20 matches apart from the only Test match against India. In the event of Morgan’s retirement, Jos Buttler could become the new captain of England. Morgan is not a part of the England Test team. He plays only ODI and T20 cricket. Morgan has been battling poor form for the last two years. He also failed to open his account twice in the recent series against the Netherlands.
