ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Captain Eoin Morgan behind England's renaissance

England`s run to their first World Cup final in 27 years owes much to the leadership of Eoin Morgan, the quietly-spoken Irishman who could achieve on Sunday what no England skipper has ever managed.

England completed a stunning victory over Australia on Thursday to set up a decider against 2015 runners-up New Zealand at Lord`s.

A first World Cup triumph for England, just four years after one of their worst displays in the competition, would be one of the most remarkable turnarounds in English sport.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has no doubt about Morgan`s role in transforming the team from a laughing stock into one that could deliver such a complete performance in the eight-wicket thrashing of Australia.

"The reason why England’s one-day cricket has been revolutionised is down to Morgan," the Yorkshireman said.
