Aggressive England can beat top sides: Skipper Morgan

London, June 24 (IANS) England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan believes his side can beat the best in the business now with their new found aggression.

On Tuesday, the team beat New Zealand by 56 runs in a Twenty20 International which came after a 3-2 win in the One-Day International (ODI) series.

“Sometimes it might not come off, but when we do play that way we win games of cricket. These wins reinforce that to everyone in the dressing room,” Morgan was quoted as saying by bbc.com on Tuesday.

With Paul Farbrace in charge temporarily before Trevor Bayliss takes over as chief coach, England smashed a record 1,617 runs in the ODI series to beat a New Zealand side that reached the World Cup final.

“This felt a million miles away after the World Cup,” said 28-year-old left-handed batsman.

“We had a lot of hard work to do, but it has turned around pretty quickly and that is credit to Paul Farbrace, the rest of the backroom staff and the way the squad has bought into what we want to be about as a side.”
