India vs England, 3rd T20I, Ahmedabad

Eoin Morgan has revealed that he was moved to the verge of tears by Jos Buttler‘s words to mark his 100th T20I, before England took the field for their eight-wicket defeat of India on Tuesday.

Morgan became the first England men’s player to reach the milestone – Danni Wyatt and Jenny Gunn had already done so for England Women – and the fourth man overall after Shoaib Malik, Rohit Sharma and Ross Taylor.

Morgan, who led England to victory in the 50-over World Cup in 2019 and now has his sights set on the T20 World Cup in India in October, was applauded by his team in a huddle after a short presentation by Buttler before the start of play.
