Plunkett picks the best England captain he played under
England veteran Liam Plunkett is the only player to have played under more England captains than his current bunch of players as he has made his international debut 14 years ago. The fast bowler rates Eoin Morgan is the best of them.
Michael Vaughan is widely praised as England’s best captain since Mike Brearley, but the positive vibes that Morgan has instilled in England’s one-day team during their escalation to No.1 in the world over the past four years surely made it easy for Plunkett to pick the best captain he has played under.
Morgan doesn’t get frustrated: Plunkett
The 33-year-old experienced campaigner said that Morgan is calm and composed on the field and went on to add that he encourages other players to well. “You never see Eoin get frustrated. He gets excited but not disappointed, he wants guys to do well. He’s the best captain I’ve ever played under, he’s been awesome for me.
“He’s never too high or too low and you can speak to him. He’s always black or white if you’re playing or you’re not playing he’ll tell you why and you can see his reason.” Talking about his preparation and training for the upcoming World Cup scheduled to be held in their familiar conditions, Plunkett had his say.
“It is about working out how I maintain where I’m at now through to the World Cup,” he said. “I know they will say have a couple of weeks off, but I’m going to train. I might have been a bit short of that in the past when people tell you to have a rest and take time off because you’re older but it doesn’t work for me.”
