Eoin Morgan’s batting woes in IPL continue as T20 World Cup approaches | Cricket News – Times of India

England Twenty20 captain Eoin Morgan’s poor batting performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) continued as he scored only two runs in Kolkata Knight Riders’ defeat by Punjab Kings, raising concerns over his form ahead of the World Cup.
Morgan, who also leads Kolkata, has scored a total of 17 runs in four innings since the IPL resumed in the United Arab Emirates last month.
The 35-year-old has an average of 10.90 runs in the T20 tournament and Kolkata coach Brendon McCullum said the team expects more from the batter.

“I think he’s captained the side really well. But look, you want some more runs from him there’s no doubt in there,” McCullum told reporters after Friday’s five-wicket loss.
“He’s one of our senior players. He’s one of our international batters and in his own head, he would have loved to contribute more runs.
“You need runs from your overseas players and you particularly need in those key spots as well. I am confident he will come alright.”
Morgan is set to lead England in the T20 World Cup, which will be held in the UAE and Oman.
England face defending champions West Indies in their opening match on October 23 in Dubai.
