first_imgConceding that losing a top fast bowler like Steven Finn Conceding that losing a top fast bowler like Steven Finn due to injury, Morgan said they had others, including Liam Plunkett who was kept out as a rotation policy, to fill in the breach. “Losing any fast bowler before any major tournament is a blow. (But) We have other guys and Liam Plunkett was fit (to be the replacement for Finn). We have big fast bowlers. That?s a positive for us.” Unlike some others he saw the positives in not many England players being a part of the hugely successful Indian Premier League T20 competition. “It becomes a different challenge. Lot of our guys have never been to India. But we have toured Sri Lanka a lot. We have been to Abu Dhabi with some success. “Lots of sides, including us, come here and get hammered which can almost scar your perception and playing within the tournament. Having a little bit of naivety along with a huge amount of talent, is not a bad thing.” He did not agree with the suggestion that England were weak in spin bowling. “No absolutely not. We have two very experienced spinners. Adil Rashid (leg spinner) has come on leaps and bounds in the last 12 months. Moeen Ali (off spinner) has become our no 1 spinner in all three forms of the game. He has been exceptional. The fact that he?s an all-rounder makes him a sheet anchor in the side.” PTI SSR NRB BS BSadvertisementlast_img read more

These are discussions that happen in a team,” he said.”You can analyse it as you like, that it’s a moment of crisis or not, but we’re here to find solutions.”I’m not going to go into the details. When there are things like we’re going through, where things aren’t going as we want, it’s about work. I always believe in that.”What you tell me is what a lot of people think: that there are people who are bad and I have to get them out of the team. It’s the opposite.”When a player is bad, I will help him. I’m more interested in unity. I’m not someone who, when things are going wrong, will throw one or two into the s***. We’re all in the same boat.”It’s everyone’s fault, mine first. We’ve had two spectacular years; thank you for saying so. It’s important people don’t forget that.”There are people who say everything has gone to s***. No. The day of the Celta game, I focused on the good things. “Are things more complicated with a draw?
