England's One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 skipper Eoin Morgan has revealed he is yet to decide on his participation in the tour of Bangladesh. He said he has not yet made up his mind on whether he will lead England in the sub-continent nation.
The team were recently given the all-clear to travel to Bangladesh after the head of security Reg Dickason carried out a security review and was satisfied with the security and travelling arrangements. England's Test captain Alastair Cook recently revealed he is happy to tour the country, but Morgan is one of the players to harbour significant doubts related to the tour.
The 29-year-old has also claimed that his authority as captain will not influence other players on their decision to tour the country.
"Absolutely not. It is a completely individual thing. The decision any individual makes within the side is the right one and everybody will stand by whoever wants to go or not, and I think that is very important", said Morgan, as quoted by ESPNCricinfo.
"I think when so much information is thrown at you within two months of a terrorist attack, you need to digest everything and be settled within yourself so you can go there and concentrate on cricket. I would say in such a short space of time it is a difficult one, but we have certainly been given the time by the ECB which helps. We have not had a great deal of downtime. I think we will take as much time as we need to make a decision and to feel comfortable and to feel safe", the ODI skipper added.
If Morgan does not travel to Bangladesh, England would need a stand-in captain, which most likely will be Jos Buttler, considering he is the vice-captain of the squad. The keeper-batsman has captained England in the past in a T20 against Pakistan in the UAE when Morgan was rested.
