The World Cup winning skipper of England cricket team Eoin Morgan has termed the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final as “the most dramatic game of cricket”.
“It feels amazing, I think the journey that we went on is probably the most exciting,” Morgan said in an interview for Kolkata Knight Riders, his IPL club.
England had a forgettable Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign in 2015 – which ended when they were eliminated from the tournament in the group stage – before making an unforgettable comeback in 2019.
Morgan looked back on how his team transformed over the course of those four years and went on to become world champions.
“In 2015, the embarrassing nature in which we were bundled out of that World Cup and the journey we embarked on to try and change the brand of cricket that we played with a new group of extremely talented players over the course of four years – it’s brilliant,” said Morgan.
“Just being able to impart some of my knowledge and experience along with some very senior players and a group of great support staff who always continue to question what we do in a good way in order to hold us accountable,” he added.
“It sort of culminated in last year’s World Cup. The final was the most dramatic game of cricket and the best game of cricket that probably has ever been played which contributes to the hype of it, ” He said.
