World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan is committed to leading England through to the ICC World Twenty20 World Cup, says Ashley Giles.

Morgan said he was undecided on his international future after guiding England to their first global 50-over title in May, admitting the campaign had left him "knackered".

The ECB hopes to appoint a replacement for Bayliss in time for the upcoming tour of New Zealand, which you can watch live on Sky Sports Cricket.
