England can spring surprise, says Morgan

Stand-in captain Eoin Morgan is backing his inexperienced England Twenty20 side to follow the Test team’s lead by upstaging India on their own turf.

Morgan will lead England in a two-match series starting in Pune today.

“We are going in as underdogs which is a great label to have with such a young side,” Morgan told BBC Sport.

“I personally would back every one of them. In this cauldron that is India it’s tough conditions, but it would be great to win these two games.”

Morgan is captaining England’s Twenty20 side in the absence of the injured Stuart Broad.

England’s 15-man squad features seven players under the age of 24.
