NED vs ENG: Why is Eoin Morgan not playing in the third ODI?

NED vs ENG: Why is Eoin Morgan not playing in the third ODI? In the absence of regular skipper Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler is taking over as captain.

On Wednesday, June 22nd, England will face the Netherlands in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) at Amstelveen. The England team has already won the series after a comfortable second consecutive victory in the second ODI. But skipper Eoin Morgan has been rested due to minor groin issues.

The southpaw has had a rough run-off recently and could use a break from the action. With his long history of back and knee injuries, team management decided not to risk aggravating a minor problem. England has signed left-arm pacer David Payne, 31, to replace the injured Morgan. Payne made his national team debut after spending some time on the white ball circuit.

Meanwhile, in the absence of the Irishman, Jos Buttler has assumed captaincy duties for the game. Buttler, who has been in top form, smashed a mind-boggling 162 off just 70 deliveries in the first ODI, helping England set a world record 498 after 50 overs.

Eoin Morgan is a fantastic leader: Liam Livingstone

Morgan, England’s only ODI World Cup-winning captain to date, has endured a miserable lean patch in recent years, and his confidence was harmed when he succumbed to two ducks in a row in the first two ODIs. His teammates, however, have come out in support of the struggling batter, with star all-rounder Liam Livingstone speaking out about his misfortunes.

“I think what has been forgotten is that Morgs is an incredible leader,” Livingstone said. “He is our team’s leader, and everyone knows he is only one score away.” “I’m sure that score will come soon and he’ll be back on track,” Livingstone told Sky Sports ahead of the third ODI.
