Default Morgan expected to captain in India

Quote:
National selector James Whitaker expects Eoin Morgan to return as captain of the England ODI side in India despite opting out of the tour of Bangladesh.

Morgan, England's ODI captain since the end of 2014, decided against travelling to Bangladesh due to security concerns. While Whitaker echoed the view of Andrew Strauss, England's director of cricket, in terming Morgan's view "disappointing" he also made it clear that it would not be held against him when it comes to future selection. ...
New example of double standard.

Didn't he mention Bangalore Bomb-blast when trying to justify his stance just few days back? I think Bangalore is in India if I can recall by geography studies.

I know Irish fans are somewhat against him but would like to know their take on this.

Wait, I get it, he only wants to tour where the Barmy army goes. Such a fan entertainer.

What a disgrace. Would've been fine if he didn't mention the Bangalore blasts in order to justify opting out of Bangladesh tour but since he did and now he's going to India most likely, he should be ashamed of himself.

Or am I expecting too much from a guy who betrayed his own country? :P

Nope, your comprehension skills are lacking. Morgan didnt use the Bangalore blast to justify his stance, he used it as an example of when he felt in a similar mindset to the one he would be if he toured Bangladesh (focused on the security situation rather than his cricket).

^^ Morgan faced the bomb blast situation in India, did not want to come to Bangladesh where he might face a similar situation (but has no problem going back to India), but that was not his reason not to come to Bangladesh?!!!

Talk about typical troll logic

In Morgan's defense Bangladesh is one country where westerners are the prime target of the terrorist groups.

Now in that aspect Morgan is safer in India. But as far as facts are concerned, India is not safe overall given the Kashmir dilemma, rape situation and homicides. Oh, and also India has faced its fair share of terrorists attack though not necessarily singling out Westerners.

What are the chances he'll be dumped as the captain before the year ends?

Let him go where he feels comfortable going. Its his life and his decision. Lets respect that and move on ..

But I think if some of IPL matches were hosted in BD, he probably would have a had different approach

I echo Roman's bhai sentiment. Its his life and his decision. England is coming and that's all it matters to us.

In Bangladesh's defense it was not ISIS attack.
In Morguns defense, money and power influence people's decision, he is not the only one.

It's his life and his decision but the thing is it would've been fine if he just didn't use the Bangalore example. But he used it and now he's going India anyway so the hypocrisy and double standards is what people have problems with.

In the 70s pommie cricketers refused to tour India Pakistan also, its part of the evolving curve. Once BD starts being percieved as a competitive test side, (and also security issues diminish), such things will go away on their own...

Please stay out of our affairs. Unlike India Pakistan we are not doormat. You really don't get it, do you? We are not questioning his reservation not to tour. It's his life and he can do whatever he wants.

However it is the integrity that counts. If he didn't feel like touring Bangladesh, he should've just said so instead of side-stepping issues. That's the point.

And frankly we shouldn't make a big deal out it. Media always likes to hype issues.

who cares? when England loses 0-3 in the series and loses valuable ranking points... you know where the blame is going.... things are going to change massively against Morgan if England loses the series.

besides.. its his own choice.. we should be concerned about our own team and combinations not theirs

WTF is your problem? Do you own this forum. I'm entitled to post my opinion. Being a rude jerk fulfills some insecure need of yours?

And let's not get into insulting countries, because you will not be able to handle some bitter facts about yours.

Morgan plays in the IPL its expected he'd tour India.

Also, he's a shrewd guy he doesn't want to be captaining the ODI team that has fair chance of losing the ODI series against BD.

Last I checked he won't have to be surrounded by tanks and snipers whilst having a simple net session in India. Take your tinted glasses off already.

I think it would be a surprise if Morgan didn't tour India ..that is news . I don't see any news here ..

But what I see is a captain lacking outside field skills .... though it is a personal choice ... I would get rid of his captaincy if I was in power ....

It really doesn't make sense at all ... no one is going to war ... if tour is not safe ..it should not go on.. if it's deemed reasonably safe then everyone should participate ....

The personal choice would be you can skip/quit and

there will be consequences ...

How can your action/no action not have consequences ?
