During the last T20 international game against South Africa this week, English analyst Nathan Leamon was picked up by television cameras with large maps on clipboards on the team balcony.

Cards with messages marked « 4E » and « 2C » were held up to give Morgan more information about possible matches between batsmen and bowlers.

« It’s a little help, a suggestion, » said wicketkeeper Jos Buttler after the game. “Eoin and Nathan are working closely on the analysis. It’s just a little experiment.

« Eoin is one of the best captains in the world, a fantastic, instinctive captain, and there’s a good balance. ”

But the former English skipper Michael Vaughan condemned the idea and tweeted: “Signals that were sent by an analyst on a balcony to the captain on the field !!!! The world has officially gone mad !!! “

In his column for the UK Telegraph, he wrote that he never considered taking such a step when leading the team.

« If I were the captain of England and the analyst suggested sending me messages on signals from the dugout, he would take a short break, » he wrote.

“Absolutely no chance that I will let that happen. I love innovation and always encourage new ideas and thoughts, but there is very little an analyst can tell you from the sidelines that you are new to.

« I would be a little worried that Eoin Morgan, a world championship captain, and Jos Buttler behind the stumps cannot instinctively react to what is happening on the field. ”

England said the coded system had been clarified with the ICC referee prior to the start of the game in case there were any suggestions for match fixing.

Morgan said Thursday that he would continue to use signals from the team balcony.

« There was always constant verbal or physical communication between the locker room and the field to improve my decisions as captain and Jos Buttler’s decisions as vice-captain, » said Morgan.

He said the English team did some research before a game and any signals should show how the data could have changed during the game.

« It’s something that we used a lot before the game and that we’re now experimenting with in-game to see if we can improve our performance on the field. « . Morgan announced that signals were used in all three T20 games. « There weren’t many choices that differed from mine. I think there were three in the first game, two in the second and a couple in the third, ”Morgan said ahead of a one-day three-game streak against South Africa that began in Newlands on Friday.

He said he believed the tactical innovation was « 100 percent in the spirit of the game ». .
