England captain Eoin Morgan reacted to previous player Kevin Pietersen's criticism of him during the World Cup defeat to Australia. Kevin Pietersen blamed the England captain for being 'scared' and 'weak' confronting Australia's Mitchell Starc during World Cup match at Lord's.
Eoin Morgan had delivered a record-breaking century in a week ago's success over Afghanistan, however, fizzled against Australia as he figured out how to score 4 runs before top-edging a short ball from Mitchell Starc.
'God helps us, Eoin Morgan looked frightened! That is a repulsiveness sign,' Pietersen tweeted. 'The England captain venturing to the square leg when Starc made me figure England could have an issue. 'I would like to think not, yet I've not seen a captain show such a soft spot for some time,' he included later.
Eoin Morgan, when he was gotten some information about his response on Pietersen's remarks, reacted with: 'Really? Excellent.', 'No, no. It didn't feel like that by any stretch of the imagination,' added Morgan in answer to another inquiry on whether he concurred with previous England captain.
Subsequent to selecting to bowl first, England bowlers neglected to confine Australia's openers David Warner and Aaron Finch who went onto to post a 123-run remain as Australia figured out how to score 285/7. In the answer, England was overwhelmed by the left-arm pace of Jason Behrendorff (5/44) and Mitchell Starc (4/43) as they surrendered to a 64-run defeat.
With this success, Australia turned into the principal group to qualify into the World Cup 2019 semi-finals though England currently needs to win their residual 2 amusements to remain in conflict for a compartment.
