Hyderabad: England’s limited overs captain Eoin Morgan has played a key role in England’s turnaround in the last few years. He also guided them to their maiden ODI World Cup in 2019.

Former England spinner Graeme Swann compared him to former Indian captain MS Dhoni. “Eoin Morgan is going to have a good series. He’s the leader, he goes in the middle order but it’s more on the field. He is for England, what MS Dhoni used to be for India, is the captain and leader. He’s got a lot of stature in that team and the players play for him. I think the T20 series will depend on how Eoin Morgan goes. If he has a good series with the captaincy and the bat, I think England will be very strong,” said Swann.

He also predicted that England batsman Dawid Malan will have a good series. “I think Dawid Malan will do well. He is a very good player of spin bowling. He is a very strong player through the off-side as well. The Indian grounds should suit him as the wickets don’t tend to turn too much in T20 cricket. They are good batting wickets for the most part with quick outfields. You should be excited to watch him play as he has been phenomenal over the last couple of years,” said  Swann.
