Morgan out to make his mark

December 19, 2012 17:29:02 UK

Eoin Morgan says he can't wait to finally see some action in India as he gears up to skipper England's Twenty20 side on Thursday.

The tourists will hope their success in the Test format of the game can be transferred to the T20 arena for the two matches against India before Christmas.

England came from 1-0 down to win the Test series 2-1, their first victory in the sub-continent nation in 27 years.

The former World Twenty20 winners will hope they can end a mixed year on a high with further success against India, starting in Pune on Thursday.

India are 1.53 to save some face and record a much-needed win at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, while England are 2.50.

Having watched his team mate's success from the pavilion for the last two months Morgan finally gets his chance in the spot light as he prepares to captain the team for the first time in Stuart Broad's absence.

The Middlesex batsman is looking to pile on the runs against India in the shortest format of the game as he looks to force his way back into the Test team in time to face New Zealand in February.

"My expectations for the guys are quite evident - to perform and show the courage and skill that they have done in domestic cricket and produce it on the big stage," Morgan said.

"It's a great opportunity for me. Especially in these two games against one of the best sides in the world in their own back yard. It's certainly going to be a challenge but I'm looking forward to it."

While England are set to ring the changes for the Twenty20 match 10 of India’s 15-man were part of the defeated Test team, with MS Dhoni captaining his country again.

Morgan is priced at 4.33 to be England's top batsman, with Joe Root 5.50 as he looks to force his way into the Twenty20 side after his impressive performance in the last Test match in Nagpur.
