England Captain Eoin Morgan Ready To Drop Himself In Bid For T20 World Cup Glory

England captain Eoin Morgan said Tuesday he would be prepared to drop himself at the T20 World Cup if he cannot turn around his poor form. The 35-year-old left-hander has scored a mere 82 runs in seven Twenty20 innings for England this year. And he only managed 133 runs at an average of 11.08 in the recently concluded IPL, although he did lead Kolkata Knight Riders to last week's final. At his best, Morgan is a dynamic ball-striker with the ability to up the scoring rate quickly as indicated by a strike-rate of 138.25 in 107 Twenty20 internationals. But asked if he might drop himself, the middle-order batsman told an online news conference: "It's always an option. I'm not going to stand in the way of a team winning the World Cup." Former Ireland international Morgan, who led England to 50-over World Cup glory two years ago, added: "I've been short of runs but my captaincy has been pretty good. "I've always managed to compartmentalize both and treat them as two different challenges. Not being a bowler and being a bit older and not contributing as much in the field, I've loved the role of captain. You get two bites at the cherry (in) impacting the game."'High-risk options'After sitting out England's warm-up defeat by India on Monday, Morgan is set to lead the team against New Zealand on Wednesday before the tournament opener against the West Indies in Dubai on Saturday. "As regards my batting, I wouldn't be standing here if I hadn't come out of every bad run of form that I'd ever had," he said. "The nature of T20 cricket and where I bat means I always have to take quite high-risk options and I've come to terms with that... so I'm going to continue taking those risks if the team dictates, they need them. If they don't, I won't." Morgan revealed Tuesday it had taken him "about six or seven months" to come to terms with what had happened, saying: "It was one of the most incredible sporting events in isolation that you'll ever watch. "It's not something that you can just let run off your back. For a guy to come in and hit four consecutive sixes to win the game for his team is just an incredible feat within itself, that's the way I've understood it." Morgan has spent most of the past two years operating under strict bio-bubble regulations designed to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Although buoyed by the presence of some players' families at the tournament in the United Arab Emirates and Oman, he queried how long the current restrictions could remain in place. "Yes, they are getting more lenient but it's coming up to a quite considerable period of time we have been adhering to all of these," he said. "I don't think they can last much longer because it's just not sustainable to ask human beings to do this and then go on and perform well at a high level."Also Read- Yuvraj Singh Arrested, Released on Bail Over Casteist Remark on Yuzvendra Chahal

Whose Player Hits Most Sixes in International & Test Cricket

Cricket has evolved over the years and so is batting. Only Test cricket existed before the 70’s when batters were required to show reliance and stay at the crease for long. However, the introduction of limited-overs cricket enhanced the significance of the run rate. With a certain limit in the number of deliveries, batters started focusing on scoring runs at a brisk pace alongside keeping their wickets safe.The need to run fast also motivated hitters to play big shots and hit sixes in international cricket. Hitting the ball on the strings is definitely not bread and butter, because hitting the ball with a six takes strength and timing. In the old days, players didn't really insist on taking the regional path. However, modern cricket is fast approaching and the sixth play is becoming mainstream.It wouldn't be wrong to say that the introduction of the T20 format made six hits popular. However, there were players who did not mind sending the ball over the ropes even in the longest form. In particular, the red ball speaks more than the white ball. However, in the midst of any challenge, a certain breed of hitter would support his impressive hitting skills. As of now, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCollum (107) and former Australian goalkeeper Adam Gilchrist (100) are the only two players to hit the 100 Six in Test format.Most sixes in Test matches:NameTeamSixesMatchesRunsBrendon McCullumNew Zealand1071016453Adam GilchristAustralia100965570Chris GayleWest Indies981037214Jacques KallisSouth Africa9716613289Virender SehwagIndia911048586Big hits and smashing sixes have definitely become an important aspect of batting in today's cricket. However, one must not forget that the international bowlers' confrontation with the cleaners requires batting. Therefore, taking six races out of one go requires some skill and skill. However, current players like Rohit Sharma, David Warner, and Ben Stokes have tasted success in all forms with their aggressive approach.Most sixes in international cricket:NameTeamSixesMatchesRunsChris GayleWest Indies55047819548Shahid AfridiPakistan47652411196Rohit SharmaIndia43837914900Brendon McCullumNew Zealand39843214676MS DhoniIndia35953817266Speaking of the most sixes in international cricket, universe chief Chris Gayle tops the list with 550 six across all three formats. Notably, this West Indies player is still an active cricketer and has all the potential to increase his numbers. Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi (476) and Indian opener Rohit Sharma (436) are the only other two players to hit the 400+ sixes in international cricket.Also, Read - Who are The Best Cricketers in the World | Pitch High
