The opener on Thursday is England’s very first on these coasts considering that being crowned world champions however the coronavirus pandemic means the homecoming will be played out in front of empty seats at the Ageas Bowl.
Morgan, though, declared he was “exceptionally delighted” to be back playing in a three-match series in which England will be without Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes and Mark Wood due to their Test duties.
While a variety of those who became part of the World Cup squad remain, this series is an opportunity for those on the fringes to make a case on their own in the knowledge that England will have a target on their backs ahead of back-to-back T20 World Cups in the next 2 years and the defence of their 50- over crown in2023
But asked if it was more of an obstacle to maintain their title, Morgan said: “I would rather be in that position than not winning and needing to discover a winning formula.
” Winning in 2015 has offered our people a huge quantity of self-confidence at the same time, method and preparation which we went through over a four-year duration.
” It allows us to enter into every World Cup with that method and forward-thinking, contributing along the method the entire time in attempting to continually to get better.
” Seeing the completed item last year was an eye opener for everybody who had not won a World Cup to date. However also, it produces a level of expectation all over we go.
” That’s one that agrees with some of our guys but for a great deal of our men, they haven’t experienced that so it is essential to recognise what is expected people progressing. Since we wish to win more prizes.”

Phil Salt was amongst those omitted regardless of a 58- ball load for England Lions against Ireland last weekend while there was likewise no space for Sam Hain, who averages 59.78 in 58 List A matches.
James Vince and Sam Billings, both of whom have been on the periphery of the side for a variety of years, have been consisted of in spite of modest records with batting averages of under 25 in 13 and 15 ODIs respectively.
Dubliner Morgan added: “I think a great deal of the perception is that they have actually almost had their possibility and their time has actually gone. However entering into the next World Cup we need skilled people making great choices under pressure and experience lends itself to that.
” We’ll continue to give opportunities but it’s to those guys we feel may have an impact in choice on the next 2 T20 World Cups or the next 50- over World Cup.”
Vince drew in criticism following scores of 26, 14 and nought when he stood in for the hurt Jason Roy during three World Cup group phase matches in 2015.
However, as Alex Hales had actually been the designated spare batsman before failing a second recreational drugs test, Morgan shielded Vince from disapproval.
Morgan included: “I believe that’s an unreasonable judgement on James to begin with.
” The person who had the chances in the lead-in to the World Cup or as the spare batsmen (Hales) evaluated favorable in a drugs test and was ruled out. Those chances may have been up to James.
” He would have been better located going into the World Cup.”
