The last time Eoin Morgan took the field was when he led England to 2019 ICC World Cup which the host won via boundary count.  Following their shock first-round exit in the 2015 edition in Australia, England created a successful template that helped them lift the ODI World Cup this year. With the T20 World Cup taking place in Australia next year, Morgan in an interaction on the sidelines of the event said that they would create another such template.

"It will be very similar because we have some exceptional T20 players and we will try to get them in the best possible position in our team and need to find out how it looks like," he said. "Over the last two years in particular, we have always seen T20 cricket as an opportunity to give young guys a game simply because our main focus has been the 50-over World Cup.

"Our strategy will change in the new year towards the (T20) World Cup. It is been long summer for some of us and some need rest. I think, in the immediate future, we might experiment a little bit. But next year, we will be working towards building a strong team.

Morgan also said that England have now set their sights on next year's World Twenty20 in Australia after fulfilling their long-cherished dream of winning the ICC ODI World Cup.

"We have 18 T20 International games from between now and then and we will try to build a squad that can potentially win that tournament (World T20)," said Morgan. "Realistically we do (stand a chance of winning). We came to India in 2016 and made it to the final. We had a similar squad during the World Cup in England this year. "If we can build our momentum and gel together as a side, it will give us the best chance," added the left-handed batsman.

Morgan was full of praise for the 24-year-old fast bowler, stating that Archer managed to overcome every obstacle that was thrown on him to make his name in world cricket.

"I think it is fantastic. Jofra is very exciting to watch and he bowls fast and has an X-factor. He can bowl in any format of the game and any circumstances and to any plan," Morgan said. "Every obstacle that is being put in front of him, he overcame that. We haven't seen the best of him, he still wants to learn all the time."

Archer was England's leading wicket-taker in their triumphant World Cup campaign at home. He then followed up his World Cup performance by scalping 22 wickets at an average of 20.27 in the four Ashes Tests against Australia.
