Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan has all the qualities to cause troubles for Pakistan. He did score a 100 against Pakistan in 2010 at Trent Bridge. He is attacking, he is innovative, he is a stroke-maker. However, on many occasions he has thrown his wicket away.

His weakness is against the ball moving away  from a good length where he has edged it to the keeper or slips 7 times.

He has played the spinners well in tests in England but it would be interesting to see him bat against quality spinners outside of England for the first time.


Plan A: Gul bowling a good length delivery on the leg stump and move it away from Morgan. Depending on how much the ball moves Morgan can either nick it behind the stumps or miss the ball to get LBW.

Plan B: One of Morgan's favorite shot is the inside out cover drive. If Ajmal, Hafeez or Rahman can deceive him with the flight the can get him out when he is trying to play uppishly through the covers

Plan C:  Hafeez is excellent to the left handers. Bowl hafeez from one end and make him bowl wicket to wicket to get LBW or bowled.
