England one-day captain Eoin Morgan admits his Test cricketing days may be coming to a close after applying for the Indian Premier League auction in February.
Morgan pulled out of the IPL in 2014 in a bid to make a return to the Test side, but he was overlooked by selectors despite England’s top-order struggles.
The 28-year-old feels he is currently not in contention for a Test spot and is hoping for an IPL deal.
“I think (my Test ambitions) have been scaled down a bit, probably since the start of last summer,” Morgan was by PA Sport.
“The opportunity I gave myself in missing the IPL last year and the potential carrot at the end of the road was, I think, the three positions available at start of summer.
“I didn’t manage to get any of them. Since then it has been scaled down a bit.
“The ambition still is to play Test cricket, absolutely, but given where I’m at at the moment I think the IPL is the best thing for me.”
Morgan is currently in Australia preparing for England’s Tri-Series clash against India on Friday.
