Eoin Morgan has warned England’s one-day international players that they will face some tough conditions in the West Indies ODI series.
The 32-year-old tourists’ captain has been helping prepare the side for the five-match series, which gets underway in Barbados on Wednesday, and will also take in venues such as Grenada and St Lucia.
Morgan claims conditions in the Caribbean continue to fluctuate between the islands and usually don’t suit England’s style of play.
Therefore, he feels it will offer the team the ideal warm-up with one eye on the World Cup on home soil in May. “It’s almost the toughest conditions we will play under,” he told Sky Sports.
“When we were last here in 2017 it was a huge challenge for us because the way we play doesn’t lend itself to conditions out here. “You jump from island to island and play against good opposition in very different conditions. It is about learning on your feet.
We all know the identity of the team is a very positive, aggressive manner in which we play. “Growing that part of our game [to adapt] only makes us a more rounded squad and team and prepares ourselves for the World Cup. “It is pretty obvious on a good day we have the ability to compete and beat some of the best sides in the world.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
