5. Eoin Morgan (England):
The Irish-born English limited overs skipper, Eoin Morgan had a dreadful start as the leader of the side and to make things worse his poor run of form also didn’t help his cause. But cometh the English summer at home coupled with changes in the nucleus of the England limited overs team, Morgan’s fortunes changed for the very best. Captain Morgan led from the front and in the English summer, out of 10 matches on 7 occasions he scored in excess of 50 runs. Morgan’s explosive innings of 113 runs against New Zealand which came off just 82 deliveries helped England create history as for the first time they chased down a towering total of 350 runs in ODI cricket. Morgan has not only scored runs but he has been able to change the dynamics of English team in colored clothing. The innovative batter has commanded his troops to victories with his extraordinary abilities as a finisher for the side. The 29-year old has amassed 967 runs this year at an average of about 44 with a strike-rate of 93.
