The International Cricket Council (ICC) released the full schedule of the upcoming World Cup in 2019 which will be held in England on Thursday. The first game of the mega event is set to be played between the hosts and South Africa as both the teams eye their maiden triumph in the 50-over extravaganza. While everybody is excited for the World Cup to kick off, one of the newspapers in the country used the skipper Eoin Morgan’s quote as the headline which he never said. However, he has cleared the air over the same now.
England are surprisingly yet to win the showpiece event of the limited overs format. But they ‘ve built an exciting team since 2015 and are now being tipped as the favourites to clinch the title next year. They are also at an advantage of playing in front of their home crowd and the format of the tournament will also help them a lot. Only 10 teams will fight it out in the World Cup and each team will be playing the other at least in the group stages even as the top 4 will make it to the semis.
What did Morgan say?
There is no doubt that England is pumped to stake their claim on the 50-over event next year. As soon as the schedule of the tournament, the newspaper, The Cricket Paper, used a controversial headline with the name of Eoin Morgan attached to it. The headline read, “Morgan: We should be feared by all” which depicted that it was a quote from the England skipper and created a controversy.
However, Morgan was livid to read the same and was quick to clear the air over the same. He took to Twitter and mentioned that it was a headline and not his quote even calling it as an absolute garbage. “Just clarifying this is a headline and not a quote. Absolute garbage,” he captioned while retweeting the headline of the newspaper.
