EOIN Morgan Will Relish [...]


EOIN Morgan will relish the chance to extend England's feelgood factor after their historic Test series victory in India when he leads an inexperienced Twenty20 team against the hosts this afternoon.

The Irishman, who has just once before led his adopted country - against his native one in a one-day international - steps up again because regular captain Stuart Broad has gone home injured.

Morgan spent much of the past two months on the periphery of the Test squad as England famously won in India for the first time since 1984-85.

He added: "It's a great opportunity for me in these two games against one of the best sides in the world in their back yard. "It's certainly going to be a challenge I'm looking forward to."

He hopes the success of the Test team can pass on a winning momentum too.

Morgan said: "Absolutely, as we've seen in the past when the Test side has done well, it had a knock-on effect with the other two teams. …
