Although Eoin Morgan has had his struggles against short-pitched balls, he has still managed to make the pull shot one of his more productive options. The former Ireland player has managed to counter the short ball ploy used by opposition teams by improving his pull shot.

Morgan has hit about 50 sixes since 2015 with the pull shot alone and is 2nd on the list for the same stat. He generally stays inside his crease and is usually waiting for the shorter deliveries because of how teams have exploited that in the past. 

The English captain has scored 9132 runs in limited-overs cricket and is England’s highest run-scorer in both ODIs and T20Is. He has scored 55 fifties and 13 centuries and has been at the heart of England’s dominance in white-ball cricket. The 34-year-old also won them their first-ever World Cup in 2019.
