Eoin Morgan does not want to be England's Test captain

England's limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan has denied taking charge of the team's red-ball captaincy. He has declared he has no such plans to come forward as England's full-time skipper and is satisfied with his current role.

Following the horrible Ashes defeat by 4-0, followed by the series defeat versus the West Indies, Joe Root has decided to step down from Test captaincy. The England and the Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is now in search of a man for the vacant post.

"I'm very happy with the role that I play within the white-ball team and English cricket at the moment. It has been the part of my career that I'm most proud of," Morgan told Sky Sports.

The batter has not played Test cricket for England since 2012 and has not been part of any red-ball format since 2019. He feels he is not a better choice for the post. It must be noted that Ben Stokes is the most probable candidate to take over Root's place.

"My career is firmly focused on World Cups, and hopefully sustaining what we've built over the last six years is probably going to be the most important part of what I leave behind eventually. I haven't played red-ball cricket for a long time. I wouldn't have any interest in the job,"
