English Cricket team captain Eoin Morgan says he will not try to stop booing of Smith and Warner

England has not won a world cup game against Australia since 1992. The arch-rivals will play against each other on Tuesday at Lord's.

Before his team takes on Australia, English captain Eoin Morgan said that he will not stop the fans from booing of Smith and Warner.

Earlier in the tournament, Steve Smith was booed by English supporters in their warm-up games, to which Steve Smith paid no attention. In India Australia game, when the crowd was booing, Virat Kohli stopped them and asked the crowd to applaud Smith. Both Smith and Warner were banned from playing cricket for a year for tampering the ball.

Morgan said, “Sport is beautiful in many ways, but cricket is the romantic sport of all sports. I would never use the position I’m in to influence fans or try to change the game in some way. They have committed something and they have served their penalty. It doesn’t necessarily mean they are welcomed back with open arms into the cricket community.”

When asked about the reception his players may receive, Australia captain Aaron Finch said players cannot control the views of the fans.

“Even if someone comes out and says ‘do’ or ‘don’t’, it’s going to happen, it hasn’t affected our boys one bit. I can honestly say that.”

Finch continued, “As a player, you don’t tend to hear a lot from the fans. That is the last thing on Steve or Davey’s mind when they walk out to bat.”
