Eoin Morgan feels that it will be almost impossible to have a single coach across Tests, ODIs and T20 matches as the formats are diverging at a faster rate. Morgan has also admitted that the 2015 World Cup debacle acted as a major catalyst in changing England's approach in the shorter formats.
"I think down the line there will be. Cricket is going to change even more in the next 10 years than it has in the previous 10 years. I'd say, if anything, the formats are getting further and further apart. So I'm open to it,” Morgan said, reported ESPN Cricinfo.
