Eoin Morgan: ‘Captain’s personality influences leading a team’

Morgan
will
now
be
back
to
action
in
the
Abu
Dhabi
T10,
trying
to
tame
another
challenge.
He
will
captain
the
Delhi
Bulls
in
the
tournament
and
here
Morgan
shares
his
ideas
about
captaincy,
T10,
the
tournament
and
his
team.

Excerpts:


On
the
importance
of
experience
while
leading
in
formats
like
T10,
T20:

I
think,
given
the
change
in
all
formats
of
cricket
and
the
effect
of
T20
cricket
from
2003-2004,
I
think
it’s
extremely
important,
because
to
be
at
the
forefront
of
any
trend
or
change,
I
think
it’s
driven
by
shorter
formats
so
for
a
player
to
be
able
play
in
shorter
formats,
I
think
it’s
essential
for
their
development
and
to
stay
relevant.


On
him
managing
the
short
form
captaincy:

I
have
a
routine
and
leading
any
group
of
men
obviously
depends
on
the
personality.
The
goals
that
you
have
set
out
as
a
team
to
achieve,
to
be
able
to
deliver
a
clear
message
about
that
goal
within
the
side
and
then
to
be
able
to
show
ability
to
drive
the
team
towards
that
goal…
think
they
are
obviously
very
important
things.


On
the
difference
in
leading
England
and
a
franchise:

I
think,
both
have
their
challenges.
When
you
talk
about
leading
your
country,
it’s
normally
over
a
longer
period,
you
build
longer
and
stronger
bonds
over
the
couple
of
years
maybe
towards
leading
to
a
World
Cup
or
a
Champions
Trophy
or
maybe
a
Test
series.

When
it
comes
to
a
franchise
team
and
lead
over
the
period
however
short
or
long
it
is,
you
are
trying
to
achieve
that
collective
goal
but
trying
to
work
with
what
you
have
at
the
time.
So
in
franchise
cricket,
there
are
as
many
challenges
but
different
ones
than
you
come
up
against
in
international
cricket.


On
how
to
lead
and
win
a
T20/T10
tournament:

I
think,
there
is
a
little
bit
of
formula.
One
of
the
toughest
things
to
achieve
is
getting
through
the
group
stage,
every
team
comes
with
great
energy,
ambition
to
achieve
the
same
thing
as
you
but
making
it
a
priority
from
the
start
regardless
of
if
you
don’t
produce
the
best
on
that
day
and
win
that
game
is
essential
to
win
the
group
stage.

If
you
can
achieve
that
and
get
to
the
other
stages
with
experienced
guys
like
(Dwayne)
Bravo
and
Adil
Rashid
in
later
stages
of
the
tournament,
your
experience
is
counted
then.


On
the
pitches
in
the
UAE:

I
think
the
pitch
is
good.
We
played
a
lot
of
IPL
and
the
World
Cup.
We
played
a
semifinal
at
this
(Zayed
Cricket
Stadium,
Abu
Dhabi)
ground
as
well.
Last
summer,
the
pitches
were
very
similar
to
what
they
are
now,
so
they
are
doing
a
hell
of
an
effort
to
make
good
pitches.
They
are
not
drastically
turning,
the
balls
are
skidding
on.
Actually,
in
the
(T20
WC)
semifinal,
the
ball
swung
a
lot.
So,
maybe
this
time
we
will
see
a
little
bit
of
that
in
this
event.


On
the
importance
of
bowlers
in
short
formats:

Yeah,
I
do.
In
all
short
format
games,
bowlers
are
key
and
I
think
the
trend
that
grew
more
recently
in
T20
cricket
is
that
wrist
spinners
are
most
effective
when
it
comes
to
taking
wickets.
I
think
that
will
be
the
same
throughout
the
tournament.
I
think
that
will
cause
more
pressure.

If
you
face
two
dot
balls,
you
feel
like
you
need
to
start
hitting
a
boundary
right
away,
in
a
game
so
short
(T10),
you
have
to
just
come
in
and
make
an
impact
and
there’s
no
time
to
settle
in
the
game
and
you
need
to
have
the
aggressive
mindset
from
the
start.


On
T10
format
being
a
vehicle
for
cricket
to
Olympics:

I
am
always
trying
to
bring
in
new
ideas
and
grow
the
game
even
bigger.
The
Olympics
is
a
huge
opportunity
to
do
that.
Ever
since
I
have
played
T10,
it’s
sort
of
eye-catching
entertainment
because
I
am
a
huge
fan.
All
my
family
and
friends
watch
the
game
and
they
go
out
and
come
back
and
watch
another
game.

“It’s
very
fan
friendly
and
if
you
are
looking
to
sell
our
game
to
people
who
haven’t
watched
cricket
before,
I
think
it’s
a
really
flexible
way
to
do
that.
Introduce
them
to
watch
different
formats
and
I
haven’t
found
a
better
way
than
T10
for
a
format
to
play
in
the
Olympics.


On
the
toughness
to
recover
form
in
a
busy
format
like
T10:

I
think
it
is
all
about
how
you
process
things
and
understand
them
and
move
on
from
the
games.
A
good
example
is
the
IPL
campaign
at
KKR.
At
the
beginning
of
the
league
we
won
two
out
of
seven,
we
weren’t
performing
well
and
struggling
as
a
team
and
then
Covid
hit.

“We
all
flew
home
and
then
six
months
later
we
joined
the
campaign
in
the
UAE
and
we
got
all
the
way
to
the
finals.
Guys
came
with
a
fresh
mindset
and
ambition
and
better
understanding.
A
lot
has
to
do
with
confidence,
feeling
comfortable
with
your
own
team
and
trying
to
wrestle
back
into
the
tournament.


On
being
a
transformative
player,
captain
for
England:

The
biggest
compliment
to
myself
and
my
team
is
that
during
Covid
this
summer,
15
of
the
squad
went
into
isolation
and
we
had
to
pick
a
whole
new
squad.
They
came
in
and
not
only
played
well
against
a
full
fledged
Pakistan
side
but
they
came
out
and
played
the
brand
of
cricket
that
we
have
been
playing.

“I
and
my
wife
were
watching
the
game.
I
called
Jos
(Buttler)
and
other
guys
and
said
‘geez
this
is
amazing
this
is
great
to
watch.
This
is
what
it
must
be
like
when
watching
us’.
It
doesn’t
matter
what
name
is
written
on
the
back
of
the
shirt.
What
we
have
achieved
in
the
last
six
years,
is
to
create
more
expectations
around
us
because
now
we
are
looked
at
as
favourites
or
second
favorites
in
tournaments
for
years
and
years
in
my
career.

“Even
in
the
2010
T20
World
Cup
we
won
in
the
West
Indies,
we
were
complete
afterthought.
Since
we
played
in
the
Champions
Trophy
in
2017,
we
have
been
the
favourites.
We
know
we
have
a
chance
of
winning,
it’s
not
a
false
hope
or
false
anticipation.
Those
two
things
are
huge
compliments
to
what
we
have
achieved
as
a
group.


On
leading
Delhi
Bulls
in
Abu
Dhabi
T10
Season
3:

We
sort
of
actually
happened
to
fly
straight
into
the
tournament
from
New
Zealand.
We
had
quality
players,
it’s
just
that
we
didn’t
perform
well
as
one
would
like.
Last
season,
I
was
watching
on
from
Australia,
my
friends
were
in
the
tournament,
it’s
actually
comparable
to
NFL
because
I
enjoy
watching
NFL
too.
T10
is
like
that,
full
of
games,
I
kept
an
eye
on
the
phone,
kept
an
eye
on
the
score.
I
obviously
missed
playing
last
year.
So
hopefully
I
will
be
able
to
make
it
up
this
year.


On
the
chances
of
Delhi
Bulls
in
this
edition
of
Abu
Dhabi
T10:

We
have
a
strong
team
and
missing
Jason
Roy
obviously
hurts
us.
We
have
plenty
of
talent
and
are
looking
forward
to
it.
Then
we
have
Dwayne
Bravo,
who
is
one
of
the
most
experienced
T20
cricketers
in
the
world.

“You
think
how
long
he
has
been
around
and
how
many
games
he
has
played
and
the
biggest
factor
that
he
is
a
winner
and
won
competitions
around
the
world
and
won
the
T20
World
Cup
as
well.
So
he
is
going
to
be
essential
and
hopefully
achieving
success
with
us
too.
