Currently, the England team is on a tour to West Indies, where they are playing in a T20I series, with test series also on the schedule in March. But, there is a major announcement regarding the most important member of the touring party.
The England white ball captain Eoin Morgan is set to miss the final 2 T2OIs against West Indies team due to low-grade quadriceps injury. The England Cricket posted an update on Twitter regarding the captain.
