England's limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan has said that Test cricket and the County Championship hold little significance to young players who are increasingly leaning towards the shorter Twenty20 format.
Morgan, who hopes to represent Middlesex in England's domestic four-day game for the first time in three years this season, believes that he is among the last generation of cricketers for whom the game's oldest format is still relevant.
"I am not sure the (County) Championship matters to everyone anymore," Morgan told the Times. "I am a bit unique in wanting to return to play in it. I would say I am the last generation of people who care about it."
Earlier this year, England opener Alex Hales and all-rounder Adil Rashid chose to play only limited-overs cricket for their counties Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire respectively.
