The 35-year-old, who has been plagued by injuries and has recently been out of form, aims to lead England to a successful T20 World Cup campaign in October and November but believes it is too early to think about defending their 50-overs championship in 2023.
He added of the ODI World Cup, “that’s a long way away.”

“First and foremost, I must go to the T20 game.” I’ll take things as they come, focusing on my contribution and my body.

“At the present, I still believe I have something to offer and that I can help the team win the World Cup.” For me, that’s a critical goal.”

Morgan assumed command of England’s limited-overs teams in December 2014, taking them to the Twenty20 World Cup final two years later before assisting them in winning the 50-overs competition in 2019.

In January, he experienced a low-grade quadriceps injury after playing back-to-back games in a T20 series against the West Indies, but he expects to play all three ODIs against the Netherlands this week.

“Some of our international games are back-to-back,” Morgan explained. “I did that in the West Indies when I played Saturday, Sunday, and then hurt myself before the game on Wednesday.”

“It was due to playing two international games in a row.” As a result, it’s improbable that I’ll feature in every England match this summer.”
