Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler have backed Eoin Morgan to do well and expected the southpaw to be at his best again in the future.
Eoin Morgan led England to their first 50-over World Cup title in 2019, but he himself has been without half a century in one-day internationals and Twenty20s for almost a year.
The batter registered two consecutive ducks against the Netherlands and missed Wednesday's game due to a tight bar which England won by eight wickets, completing a 3-0 ODI clean sweep.
On Wednesday 22 June, England handed the Netherlands a 3-0 defeat with an eight-wicket win in the third and final game of their ODI series at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen.
Left-hander Morgan had a torrid time in the series after scoring two ducks in a row. He missed the third game due to a groin injury and Buttler led the Three Lions.
It has been almost a year since the 35-year-old batter scored half a century in limited overs cricket for Britain. His poor form has also raised questions about his selection for the T20 World Championship later this year in Australia.
“His position is certainly not in question within the camp. I cannot put into words what he has achieved. Everyone always talks about his captaincy but you forget what a brilliant batsman he was in over 200 ODIs for England - it doesn't just go away overnight. Everyone on the team supports him," Sky Sports Buttler quoted as saying.
"Well he's only had two low scores so I wouldn't say he's going through a tough time at the moment," England Test captain Stokes was quoted as saying to reporters.
"I think the press is the only one making life difficult for him and I think the players have shown that it's not a problem for them.
"People aren't allowed to score a lot of runs and on top of that he's our captain. He's a phenomenal leader and always will be so I have no issues with anything being wrong with him at the moment," added Stokes.
