England batsman Eoin Morgan has expressed his desire to become the country’s Twenty20 captain.
Morgan will get the opportunity to captain the national team when they take on Sri Lanka in a one-off Twenty20 International on May 20.
Morgan also hopes to gain valuable experience while captaining Middlesex’s ODI and Twenty20 squads as well.
“I think it is [something I would like to do],” Morgan told Sky Sports. “It all starts at Middlesex, I’ve taken over the one-day and T20 captaincy which is something I’m really proud to be doing.
“It’s going to be a challenge but the strength and depth within the squad we have bodes well and hopefully we’ll be in the chase for silverware at the end of the season.”
Meanwhile, Morgan also admitted that he was shocked about the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) plans to launch fresh investigations into players and officials involved in match-fixing.
“I’m astonished with the stuff that has come out,” Morgan said. “All the education is there for the players, you’re taught from a very young age to stay clear.
“It’s a no-go area and everybody knows that we don’t want that to be a part of the game.”
