Moeen Ali praised Morgan fiercely, told what is the similarity between him and Dhoni

Moeen Ali MS Dhoni Eoin Morgan England vs India: England all-rounder Moeen Ali on Thursday said that there are many similarities between former international captains MS Dhoni and Eoin Morgan. He also said that both are very calm and do not panic about anything on or off the field. Ali played under Dhoni for Chennai Super Kings in two seasons of the IPL, while Morgan, who retired from international cricket on Tuesday, was their national captain in white-ball cricket.

he said, "There are many similarities between Dhoni and Morgan. Both are very calm. Nothing bothers them on or off the field, but they are also very competitive. They know what they are doing and never panic."

Ali was quoted as saying by The Times, "I have never seen any of them talking in anger. If they feel they need to deal with someone, they do it one by one, never in front of a group. He never embarrasses anyone and the players trust him."

Apart from white-ball cricket, Ali said earlier this month that he would be available to return to Test cricket, especially as England tour Pakistan this year. The all-rounder had said, "I’ve talked to Brendan a lot. He is preparing for the show over the winter and of course, I want to see Jack Leach do well. I don’t want to be the No. 1 spinner and we are not talking about two or three, we are talking about the coming three years. If he’s injured or needs three or four spinners for the tour and he still thinks I’m playing really well, I’ll be more than happy to be in the team.
