England captain Eoin Morgan stated that his team is “gathering momentum well” because the last runner-up hopes to improve his performance in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Due to the threat of COVID-19, this major event has moved out of India. It will be held in the UAE and Oman from October 17th to November 14th.
Morgan lost to the West Indies in the 2016 T20 WC final, and he emphasized the importance of continuing to play in the past two years.

I think in the T20 cricket match, because the game changes very fast, and there are many talented teams in our group, I think every game The games are very important to us,” Morgan said in a conversation with the International Criminal Court on Friday.

In 2016, England won the runner-up. Carlos Brathwaite defeated Ben Stokes four consecutive times in the final dramatic match of the final, leading the West Indies to the championship.
“The evolution of T20 cricket and its role in our great game is very important for the development of the game and the popularity of the game. It is huge. It has been a long time since 2016. , We are gone,” Morgan said.
South Africa and Australia join England and the West Indies to enter the first group of the Super 12, as well as the two undecided qualifiers for the first round of the men’s T20 World Cup this year.
England will kick off its campaign in the 2021 Championship against the West Indies in Abu Dhabi on October 23.
