Eoin Morgan wants to maintain momentum

Eoin Morgan - looking to maintain momentum

Eoin Morgan is hoping England can carry their winning momentum into two new white-ball campaigns against India.

Morgan's men won all six of their limited-overs meetings with Australia last month, culminating in victory in a one-off Vitality IT20 at Edgbaston.

After four days off, on the eve of a three-match Twenty20 series which starts at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, Morgan said: "I don't think it's a case of putting [victory over Australia] to one side when there are huge positives to take from the series. I think you can use a lot of that, confidence and experience-wise."

Australia were in a transitional state, minus several first-choice players, and it will be no surprise if Virat Kohli's India pose a significantly tougher challenge over the next two weeks.

Morgan added: "Having had a few days off and time to reflect on the series [against Australia], it's something we can call upon - and might need to in either series, the Twenty20 or the ODIs, when our backs are against the wall. I think it's important."

England are 4/6 with Sky Bet to win on Tuesday with India 6/5.
