England’s new white-ball coach Matthew Mott has said Eoin Morgan will decide when to step down as captain, but thinks it is “a long way off”. Eoin Morgan has just one half-century in his last 24 white-ball innings for England and will turn 36 ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia this autumn.

Eoin Morgan led England to 50-over World Cup glory in 2019 and they reached the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup last year.

Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali have been tipped to replace Morgan, but Mott, who begins his stint with the first three ODIs against the Netherlands in Amstelveen on Friday, is not sure about Morgan’s retirement. Morgan has close ties with England managing director Rob Key as well as Test coach Brendon McCullum, and will be allowed to determine when he would like to leave the sport.

“I think there’s a long way to go to be at that point,” he said. “Great players go through runs and sometimes you flick a switch and it changes – then you wonder what the fuss is all about.

“Definitely watching him bat in the nets he is in great shape and doing well. You can already tell how deep an impact he has on this group. He has great cricket ahead of him.”

Mott left his role as the head coach of Australia’s women’s team after back-to-back T20 World Cup titles in 2018 and 2020, winning the equivalent of 50 overs this year.

Mott admitted he would not need to “reinvent the wheel” with the team, as England are second in the world in one-day internationals, top Twenty20 internationals and have a large pool of players.

However, Key has currently put more emphasis on red-ball cricket, and the side has made a bright start under McCullum.

Mott, 48, admitted that with England’s coaching set-up now a divided role, there are times when Key and McCullum have tough talks over the selection of multi-format players like Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow – Who played an important role in England’s victory over New Zealand.

“You need to have a healthy respect for the other person and understand your own biases,” said Mott, who was also previously head coach at Glamorgan and New South Wales.

“For me, the clarity is that there is always a need to put more emphasis on one format at some point of time. Whether you are going ahead in the World Cup or going forward in the Test series, clarity on who is the priority will be important. Will be

“It’s important to be really honest about it and to manage expectations for the other team. It may not be the same all the time. It’s a Test series at the moment. It’s a big Test series in the context of where England are going with the red ball. facing New Zealand.

“As England approaches the T20 World Cup, I’m sure the white-ball team will probably get more space in the selection of players. You just have to park your ego sometimes and look at the bigger picture. Me Looks like the three of us in the middle can definitely work on it.”
