“It is a brave call but we have come a long way with this team and we need to put ourselves in the best position in order to be contenders. If that means I am not good enough to be in the team as a captain or as a player I will be the first one to say it, I’m an honest guy. I’m more than capable of making a tough decision,” Morgan said.
