His form was continued in third ODI he gained his talent by scoring quick fire 62 off 56 balls which the match won by his team also,and in the fourth he won the man of the match for his belligerent innings of 92 off 92 balls this inning was helped to square the series. In the final match of the series he retired injured after a blow to the head after scoring just 1 run.

2015 Australia ODI series

Morgan continued in his role as ODI captain in the five-game series at home against New Zealand. The series began with a dominant performance by England, winning by 210 runs, Morgan contributing 50. The following match was a much more close-run affair, with New Zealand clinching the match by 13 runs (D/L method). Morgan performed strongly with the bat, scoring 88 off only 47 balls. New Zealand were victorious again in the third match, winning by 3 wickets with an over remaining. Morgan scored 71 in England's innings. In the fourth ODI, Morgan scored 113 from 82 balls, which helped England win the match by 7 wickets, a performance which earned him the Man of the Match award. In the final match of the series he was out for a duck, but England went on to win the game and the series 3–2. In the one off T20 match between the two sides, Morgan made 4 as England went on to win the game.

2015 New Zealand

Morgan's poor form continued into the World Cup, where he only scored 90 runs in five innings.[68] His tournament started badly as he was dismissed for a duck in England's opening game against Australia. He made 17 in the next match against New Zealand as England slumped to a humiliating eight wicket defeat. He made 46 against Scotland as England won their first match of the tournament, and made 27 in England's nine wicket defeat against Sri Lanka. He was out for yet another duck in England's must win game against Bangladesh, meaning they exited the tournament. They won their final match against Afghanistan, with Morgan not be required to bat. This meant that England managed to win only 2 out of 6 games in the tournament under Morgan's captaincy, both victories came against much lower ranked teams Afghanistan and Scotland[69]

Following his appointment as captain, Morgan's first series as skipper was a tournament contested by India, Australia and England. Morgan promised a more aggressive approach as captain and said England would be a more dynamic team. However, they suffered a loss in his first match leading the side against Australia, Morgan himself made an impressive 121 but it was not enough as the rest of England's batsmen struggled. Morgan was not needed to bat in the next match as England secured a comfortable win over India, Morgan's first as permanent captain. He again suffered defeat against Australia in the next game, being dismissed for a duck. England beat India again in the next game to qualify for the final, but Morgan was again unimpressive, making just two. England lost the final to Australia, with Morgan being dismissed for a duck again.

In the return series in Sri Lanka, Morgan endured a poor time. He scored just 19 runs in the first three games as England went 2-1 down in the series. In the fourth game, aalistair Cook was suspended due to a slow over rate in the previous game, and so Morgan took over as captain. He made 62, his only fifty of he tour, although England still went on to lose the game. In the next game Morgan could only make and he was dismissed for a duck in the penultimate game of the series as Sri Lanka secured a series victory. In the final match Morgan again failed to make an impression, this time making just four runs as England suffered another defeat.

After the first game against India was rained off, Morgan made 28 in the second match as England lost to go 1–0 down in the series. He made 10 in the next match as India secured another win, this time by six wickets. He made 32 in the next match as England suffered a humiliating nine wicket defeat. The manner of the lead to questions over the personnel in the team, and the pressure increased on captain Alistair Cook. Despite this, England won the final match of the series, although Morgan again failed to make a big score, being dismissed for 14. In the only T20 match between the two sides, Morgan hit 71 from just 31 balls in an innings that included seven sixes. England won the match by three runs and Morgan was named man of the match.

2014 Sri Lanka and India

In the T20 World Cup, England lost their first game to New Zealand, with Morgan making just 12. However, they secured an unlikely victory in the next game against Sri Lanka with Morgan hitting 57 and batting well alongside Alex Hales to help England chase down a large Sri Lankan score and keep their hopes of winning the tournament alive. However, they lost their next game to South Africa, with Morgan scoring just six to end their hopes of qualifying. In the final game of the tournament they suffered a humiliating defeat to the Netherlands, with Morgan scoring just six.
