Moeen Hailed Morgan
Further, talking about the captaincy of Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali was all praises for him and hailed him as the greatest white-ball captain of England. He said:
“He (Morgan) has almost taken England from the dark days to very good days. We were horrendous in white-ball cricket before that and he changed the mindset of the players. Actually, the way England is playing in Test cricket is because of him. He showed that if you have the mindset, you can play fearless cricket, which we are playing now. He is the greatest white-ball captain we’ve ever had,”
