England ODI captain Eoin Morgan has announced that he is “not really that concerned” about his form with the bat heading into his side’s World Cup opener against Australia tomorrow.
Morgan’s comments come after he has scored 0, 2, 0 and 0 following his brilliant knock of 121 against Australia in the first game of the ODI tri-series on January 16.
“I’m not really that concerned,” he said. “I went through a bit of a bad patch before Christmas and I feel, since I started with the Sydney Thunder at the Big Bash, I’ve started to turn things around.
“I’ve had a couple of low scores but I’ll look to cash in on Saturday if I manage to get past 10-20 balls.
“I think it is four or five games since I scored a hundred so I don’t have to look that far back to actually reconnect with what works well for me.
“I took a lot from that hundred I scored at Sydney, particularly because it was against Australia, and the first game is a big game against Australia so I’ll take a lot of confidence from that game.
“I find it really easy to reconnect with the past and what I do well and can be very individually focussed when the chips are down.
“I’ve done that in the past on a number of occasions when I’ve gone through low scores. I know that I have done it and come out the other side.”
