Morgan spoke about how IPL has helped him to become an improved cricketer and the way he goes about the game now.
Morgan said on interview with Cricbuzz, “The IPL has helped my game in a huge way. The first 2-3 years I came to the IPL, I saw my game improve immensely. Rubbing shoulders with the best players in the field, you gain huge amount of confidence training alongside them, playing with them and seeking advice from them. I was lucky to play with the likes of Jacques Kallis, Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid and had the opportunity of watching them closely as they went about their business. As a youngster making his way into international cricket, it was a quite a big thing for me.”
The SRH camp boasts of many left-handers, Yuvraj Singh, David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Morgan himself, to name a few. Talking on this, Morgan said he wouldn’t tag this as their team’s USP. He was quick to cite that it is the team culture that remains to be the talking point of their side. Morgan is one of those breed of cricketers, who loves playing cheeky shots behind the wicket, and that too with great effect. Morgan is known for his unusual shots, and it is such shots, which makes life difficult for the bowlers when he is in full flow.
