From English cricket’s embarrassing failure at the 2015 World Cup to their heart-stopping victory four years later, Nick Hoult and Steve James vividly describe the team’s dramatic journey from abject disappointment to finally lifting the trophy. Morgan’s Men reveals how the team became the most aggressive limited-overs side in the world, led by their inspirational captain Eoin Morgan, whose vision and determination to succeed captured the imagination of the nation.

Hoult and James follow England’s journey from Bangladesh to Barbados, from Melbourne to Manchester, to present the inside story of the team’s rebirth. They tell us how players dealt with the Ben Stokes court case, the sacking of Alex Hales for a drugs ban, and reveal the innovative new strategies and tactics that helped them become the best in the world, culminating in a World Cup final that was arguably the greatest one-day match of all time.
