Eoin Morgan, one of the few England players that are featuring in IPL 8, has been a big flop so far.
Playing for one of the Southern region teams in the League i.e. the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Morgan has not been able to make even one match winning contribution.
At the start, he found himself on the bench with Kane Williamson being preferred over him which was a little bit of a surprise.
The left hander was slotted in after a couple of games though, but, the change hasn’t made any difference so far.
Morgan is actually struggling more than Williamson. Maybe, he needs to bat higher, that can be argued, but, he is not looking in form at all if the truth is spoken.
Morgan has had a successful time over here in India in international Cricket in the past.
Because of his soft hands and quick feet, he handles spin well which is very important in these conditions, but, the last year or so, he has had a bit of a downfall as a batsman and his confidence appears to be very low at the moment.
If the Sunrisers continue with him for 3-4 games, that might give him some self belief which he needs badly.
Morgan is a match winner and there is no doubt if he finds form, the Sunrisers would get benefitted from him. He is a sort of player who would win them 3-4 games on his own.
The Sunrisers are in the bottom two teams in the IPL 8 table at the moment. They have won only one out of their four games and have got only two points in the kitty. A couple of more defeats would make them stand on the verge of getting knocked out.
