The 35-year-old, who announced his retirement from international cricket as England’s white-ball captain earlier this year, lost to Manchester Originals by five wickets at The Ageas Bowl. Morgan could not take the team forward in his presence and he clearly confirmed this.
In addition to competing in this summer’s short format competition, Morgan has also spent time working with the Sky Sports cricket punditry team.
“I’m not quite sure,” he said of his plans for the immediate future. “Tournaments next year are very far away.
“Obviously this year’s ending has reflected on me really well. I’ve enjoyed retirement a lot, I love the pod, I love golf, I love spending more time with my family, it It’s been wonderful.
“But who knows next year?”
Morgan did not feature in the IPL earlier this year after being overlooked during the auction after joining Kolkata Knight Riders last season.
Morgan was joining Ian Ward, Chris Jordan and Kevin Pietersen pitchside after their team’s loss to the Originals, which was inspired by Laurie Evans’ superb 72 to kickstart their successful run chase.
Pietersen joked that he had already decided on his next move.
“I think he has answered the question about next year,” the former England batsman said with a laugh. “He’s coming to join us in the pod, he’d rather be in the pod than win a game of cricket.”
His captaincy team, London Spirit, lost to Manchester Originals in the semi-finals. He was out after scoring a golden duck.
