Morgan is “incredibly proud” of how his team played. They had to fight hard to win, he’s delighted with how Livingstone and Moeen stepped up when necessary, and he loved being at the other end Buttler constructed one of his best-ever innings. He thinks he’s one of the best there is and talks about his “unbelievable skill level” with his mindset and ability to read the game, understanding when to go and where to go.
On his own performance, he reckons that if you don’t believe, no one else will, and he’s pleased to have got some runs, especially with one of his best mates out there with him. It’s a moving thought, that – I can’t imagine the friendship you can forge touring and competing with the same lads over so many years, and the existence of such an atmosphere is almost all captain’s work. He is so ridiculously inspiring, and in the least nauseating manner imaginable.
