To live

Morgan recalled times in his captaincy when, after similarly poor performances with the bat, he was adamant about the approach he wanted his side to take.

Against South Africa in an ODI at Lord’s in 2017, England went 20-6 before recovering somewhat to score 153 in a seven-wicket loss, while in Adelaide earlier in 2018, Australia cut Morgan’s team to 8- 5 before finally posting 196 in a three-wicket loss.

“There were a couple of times early in my captaincy and continuous questions throughout,” Morgan added.

“I look back at Lord’s, I think, against South Africa and Adelaide, where we were 8-5.

“Those are key moments when people are waiting to say ‘let’s be smarter, let’s back up a bit’. That’s not where Jos Buttler and his England team want to be.”

“They want to be at the forefront of performance, win World Cups and be considered the best team in the world. And I think that’s what he will tell his team.”

Buttler: Hitting has been our super strength

Buttler, speaking to reporters after his side’s heavy loss, insisted his hitting remains his “super strength” and will not be derailed.

“You certainly don’t want days like this to come,” Buttler said. “They’ve come few and far between, so it’s hard to accept.

“Certainly it’s key not to panic, not to investigate too much and find too many faults. India played fantastically well and we didn’t manage to deal with it as well as we would have liked.”

“But, if I look back over the last five or six years, hitting has been our biggest strength in this form of the game. You look at the names of the guys there, they’re some of the best players we’ve ever had.” .

“We’ll try to learn as much as we can from him, but we’ll stick to what we know. There’s a great confidence in that locker room that there are brilliant players there.”

“We need to be positive, come back and fix things when we play on Thursday. [in the second ODI at Lord’s].”

“I don’t think you can be too critical of England batsmen. Sometimes you just have to say it’s wonderful to bowl.”

“It was hard work, but it’s supposed to be hard work. It’s the highest level and it’s not supposed to be a walk in the park for hitters all the time.”

“Today was a day to be a bowler and England’s batsmen found themselves wanting, but it’s not the time to panic by any means.

“There has been a complete change in management and it will take time for captain Jos Buttler and new manager Matthew Mott to develop their own team and squad. Let’s be honest, Eoin Morgan is a very difficult act to follow.

“I wouldn’t panic about the batting lineup. I know it’s weird to say that after 110, but they have a lot of hitting that will give them runs in T20s and ODIs, so many options.”
