England white-ball captain Eoin Morgan, who led their resurgence in the shorter formats after the 2015 Cricket World Cup is likely to retire from international cricket very soon. Morgan, who has been struggling for form and due to his fitness, is contemplating hanging his boots in the upcoming weeks.

According to a report in The Guardian, Morgan has been considering the decision over the last few days as he is battling with form and fitness issues. Morgan, who was instrumental in ending England's wait for a World Cup trophy has averaged 16.67 in T20Is in 2021 and 15 in the two games he has played this year.

In ODI cricket, Morgan recently featured in



the two games against the Netherlands and the left-hander was dismissed for a duck in both of them. The 35-year-old didn't feature in the third ODI due to a groin injury and it looks like it might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Morgan, who started his career playing for his birth country Ireland played an important role in restructuring and transforming English white-ball cricket, which has now seeped into Test matches as well. Morgan's deputy Jos Buttler is in line to become the next England white-ball captain, who led the defending champions in the final ODI against the Dutch if the Irishman does announce his retirement from international cricket in the coming days.
