He will be alright – Jason Roy backs Eoin Morgan to come good

Written by Mohan Sharma

England batter Jason Roy backed his skipper Eoin Morgan to regain his lost touch with the bat in hand. Morgan has strained to find any sort of rhythm in recent times, having scored two back-to-back ducks in the ongoing ODI series against the Netherlands.

At the VRA Ground in Amstelveen, where the likes of Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone and Phil Salt have made hay, Morgan has struggled to even get off the mark. In fact, in his last 26 innings for the Three Lions, Morgan has got only one 50 plus score.

“That’s just the fickle nature of the sport. If you’re behind the eight ball it’s quite tough but he’s an incredible worker, an incredible guy, so I’m backing him for sure,” Roy was quoted as saying.

“He’s the captain of our side and winning game so I think that means more to him than his scores, which makes him more special to play under. He will be alright. He’ll be absolutely fine,” he added.

England have already sealed the fate of their three-match series against the Dutch team, now captained by wicketkeeper Scott Edwards.
