Eoin Morgan retires: England cricket team's most successful ODI captain in international cricket, Eoin Morgan, on Tuesday, announced retirement from international cricket. Winning the 2019 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup remains the most memorable moment of Morgan's entire international career. The 35-year-old is England's highest run-scorer as well as the most successful skipper in 50-overs format. Morgan has scored 6957 runs for England in 225 ODIs with 13 centuries. Overall, the star batter has scored 7701 runs in ODI cricket with 14 centuries. Under Morgan's captaincy, England won 76 out of 126 matches, and his win percentage was 65.25 during this period.

Announcing his retirement, Morgan said in a statement, "After careful deliberation and consideration, I am here to announce my retirement from international cricket with immediate effect. 

"To call time on what has been without doubt the most enjoyable and rewarding chapter of my career hasn't been an easy decision, but I believe now is the right time to do so, both for me, personally, and for both England white-ball sides I have led to this point.

"I have been lucky enough to play in two World Cup winning teams, but I believe the future for England's white-ball teams is brighter than ever. We have more experience, more strength and more depth than ever before. I look forward to watching on with a huge level of excitement.

"To what lies ahead for me, I will continue to enjoy playing at a domestic level while I can. I'm really looking forward to playing and captaining London Spirit in the second edition of The Hundred this year."
