Former skipper Michael Vaughan has picked Ireland-born Eoin Morgan as his choice to replace Alastair Cook as captain, despite his poor form in the ongoing One-Day International (ODI) series against India.

“I think the one-day specialists are frustrated and their performances reflect the fact they are being stymied by a strategy they know is out-dated. It is why we need a one-day strategist as captain, putting across his ideas and giving England half a chance with a different approach. I know people will say Eoin Morgan is not in great form but I believe he is frustrated by the brand of cricket England are playing. He has been told to play something he does not believe in,” Vaughan wrote in his column for The Daily Telegraph.

“If he was made captain, Morgan would take all the tricks and information he has learned playing T20 cricket around the world and change the way England play. He would bring a renewed freedom into the set-up instead of the straight-laced Englishness that pervades at the moment,” he said.

England are currently going through a tough phase, having lost five-match ODI series to India at home by a margin of 3-0 with one more match to go.
