- Eoin Morgan, English player will not be seen in IPL season 2022 despite bidding less for himself
- Eoin Morgan, 35, played for Kolkata Knight Riders last year (2021) but did not perform as expected.
- With no IPL franchise selected, the player finally said it was time to charge in the break
Like many players, this year Eoin Morgan was also amongst those who didn’t get selected in the IPL season this year. The reason being is quite simple as the player was selected last year in the Kolkata knight riders’ team but didn’t perform as expected. This probably could be the reason the player was not even looked upon this year.
Currently, the player is having a strike rate of 98.47 and is having an average of 11.72. In the overall season of the 2021 IPL league, Eoin Morgan was seen scoring only 129 runs in his 15 innings. On four occasions in the same year, he was sent back to the pavilion with scoring even a single run.

For the IPL season 2022, the English player hoping for the best made himself available for the bid amount of 1.5 crores as the bid price. But unfortunately, the player for nowhere near the selection criteria of the franchises.
Not being disappointing by the player said,
“I thought my best chance was to be picked up in the second round once squads had been put together if someone needed help as a reserve middle order, experienced player, captain, whatever. But by the time the first round finished, pretty much every team had boxed that off, so I had no chance. I won’t play any cricket for two months at least, regardless of opportunities that present themselves. I have decided to take time away given the year we have ahead,”
Morgan adding further said,
“It’s a fact that I have not scored enough runs. I’d agree. I am viewing it as a challenge that I have been through before and I’m hoping to come out the other side. I will be using this break to recharge, but also to have a little bit of time to work on things that you don’t have time to work on while you are in competition,”
Every player in his lifetime has to go through some of the other rough patches and probably this time is for the English player. We hope and wish him the best for the upcoming events.
