Eoin Morgan admitted his form was a cause for concern after England’s 21-run defeat to West Indies in the Twenty20 international in Durham.
Morgan was dismissed for just two as the hosts failed to chase 176, meaning he has not reached double figures in his last seven innings.
Speaking after the loss, Morgan told Sky Sports: ‘I think my form is always a concern, I don’t know whether I’m in or out of form the whole time so it’s always a bit of a concern.
‘But it’s something I’m actually becoming more relaxed about as I get older.
‘I’m looking forward to the one-day series, I didn’t manage to get runs today but hopefully I can contribute then.’
West Indies posted 176-9 after being put into bat with Evin Lewis smashing 51 and opening partner Chris Gayle making 40.
The tourists looked set to reach 200 after a blistering opening stand but Morgan’s side fought back through Adil Rashid (3-25) and Liam Plunkett (3-27).
Alex Hales ensured England got off to a fine start in their reply, hitting 43 off just 17 balls as he looks to stake a claim for the Ashes, but Windies took regular wickets and showed the form which enabled them to become World T20 champions last year.
‘This was probably the more challenging of our recent wins. Conditions were soft and slippery, the umpires were close to calling it off actually,’ Carlos Brathwaite said.
‘It was so bad and I asked the guys if they want to trudge on or call it a day. The umpires were in agreement with us but then we thought we will give it a go and see if there are any slips, and there wasn’t.’
