Confident Morgan won't balk at playing trademark 'unorthodox' shots in Tests

London, May 26(ANI): England batsman Eoin Morgan, who will possibly make his Test debut against Bangladesh this week, has said that he will continue playing his trademark 'unorthodox shots' even in the longest version of the game.

When asked if he was concerned about the criticism that would follow a dismissal to anything considered unorthodox, Morgan said: "Absolutely not."

"I have played reverse sweeps millions of times. I have got out 10 percent of times, but it has got me 90 per cent of my runs. I will just assess how valuable the shot will be. I might not play it for a year, but if the time and situation are right, I will," Timesonline quoted Morgan, as saying.

Morgan, who played a crucial role in the middle order when England won the Twenty20 World Cup, further dispelled the recurring suggestion that he finds Test matches too dull to sustain his concentration.

"I wouldn't say that I get bored. My failure has been with indiscipline and I think I have corrected that to an extent," Morgan said.

"I have the patience to bat for five or six hours. I might have about 400 by then. I think I can translate my style to Test cricket. It is not really about playing any differently, more with batting to the situation of the game," he added. (ANI)
