Moeen Ali, an all-rounder for England, compared the leadership philosophies of MS Dhoni and Eoin Morgan. Moeen, who played for both of them, claimed that there is not much difference between these two World Cup champion captains.

Eoin Morgan, the World Cup-winning leader of England, decided to hang up his game on Tuesday, ending a historic career following a disastrous stretch of play that showed no signs of improving.

When asked about the leadership philosophies of Morgan and CSK captain MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali responded that he had played for both. There is not much of a difference with Moeen.
In terms of ICC titles, Dhoni continues to be India’s most successful captain. Morgan continues to be the only captain in England’s cricket history to have assisted the side in winning an ODI World Cup championship.

“I have played under Morgan. I have also played under MS Dhoni. In terms of personality, they are both very calm and loyal to their players. “Brilliant captain, brilliant player,” Moeen said in an interview with Sports Today.

“Before that, we were dreadful at white-ball cricket. He shifted the players’ perspectives. I believe that the way England is playing now in Test cricket is due to him. He demonstrated that if you have the right mindset, you can play fearless cricket, which is what we are doing right now,” said the all-rounder.

Moeen Ali has retired from Test cricket but continues to represent England in the two white-ball formats.

Was Quite Sad When It Hit Me: Eoin Morgan On The Moment He Realised His Time Was Up In International Cricket

Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan, one of the players most responsible for modernizing the game, announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect and said goodbye to England. It was the ideal time, and Morgan, who has been suffering from his form and fitness for the past 18 months, said he didn’t think for a second that he was coming out too early. 

Morgan remarked in a press conference at Lord’s on Tuesday that everyone had assured him that he would know when the moment was perfect because there would be a proper setting and occasion, and the just-completed series against the Netherlands was it.

Everything Must Come To An End: Eoin Morgan

In a video shared by England Cricket, Morgan said, “Everything must come to an end. I have been open and honest the last three years about when this day would come. I have spoken to a lot of people that have been through this transition particularly in our sport.

Each one of them to a man said that there will be a time and place that it will just hit you like a ton of bricks or the answer I got and most common was ‘You’ll know’.

“When we were in Amsterdam, it hit me quite hard. And, I am glad that I was in a good enough space to realise what I was going through and accepting it. I was quite sad the day that it hit me but since then I have been very happy, very content, unbelievably proud not only as a player but as a captain,” he added. 

Morgan finished his career as the most successful captain of the 2019 winners and the only one to win a World Cup for his country, leading England to 76 victories in 126 ODI matches. 

Eoin Morgan Applauds Jos Buttler

Due to a groyne ailment, Morgan was unable to participate in the third game of the series, but after scoring two ducks in each of the first two games he did play, it appeared that the finish was closer than anybody had anticipated.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Morgan praised Jos Buttler, who has served as his stand-in in white-ball cricket for the longest period, noting that he commands respect within the team not just as a batsman but also as a leader. 

“Jos has been in charge, he’s been an unbelievable good vice-captain while I’ve been captain, and when he’s stepped in he’s been an exceptional leader. He obviously commands himself with the bat as one of the best players in the world, but also as a leader within the group he commands tremendous respect,” he said.

Ravindra Jadeja Has Got Good Brain, He Potentially Could Be Good Leader – Moeen Ali Backs All-rounder After Awful IPL 2022 Campaign

MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja

Senior England National Cricket Team all-rounder Moeen Ali has said that the India National Cricket Team star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has got a good brain and he could become a successful skipper in future.

On March 24, just a few days before the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 commenced, legendary captain MS Dhoni decided to hand over the CSK captaincy to Jadeja.

However, Chennai Super Kings struggled under Jadeja’s captaincy as they won only 2 games and faced 6 defeats and Jadeja’s form with bat and ball also took a massive hit. So Jadeja decided to hand back the captaincy to Dhoni, in the middle of the season, to focus more on his game.

Speaking to Sports Today, Moeen Ali said that Jadeja failed as a skipper in the IPL 2022 because CSK as a team were failing to perform. He added that there is not much difference between Dhoni and Jadeja in terms of characteristics.

“He’s (Jadeja) inexperienced in terms of captaincy and leading CSK was tough for him this year because we weren’t playing well as a team. But he has got a good brain and he potentially could be a good leader in the future,” he said.

“I have played under him. I have played under MS Dhoni as well. There is not much difference between both of them in terms of the characteristics – very calm, very loyal to their players. Brilliant captain, brilliant player,” he further added.

He changed the mindset of the players – Moeen Ali on Eoin Morgan

Moeen Ali was further asked about the impact of revolutionary England white-ball captain Eoin Morgan, who recently announced his retirement.

Ali said that the former England captain changed the mindset of the players and the reason behind England’s recent success in Test cricket under Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum is actually Eoin Morgan.

“We were horrendous in white-ball cricket before that (2015 World Cup). He changed the mindset of the players. Actually, the way England are playing now in Test cricket, I believe, is actually because of him. He showed that if you have the mindset, you can play fearless cricket, which we are playing now,” Ali said.
