England’s limited-over skipper Eoin Morgan believes that the newly proposed T20 league won’t cause any harm to existing county cricket structure featuring the 18 counties. ECB has decided to launch a new T20 league from 2020, which is expected to give a competition to world class T20 leagues like IPL and BBL.

I don't think it will damage county cricket at all. It's not a gamble. It's proven in other countries that it is possible to have it all. We are never going to lose our core cricket fans,” said Morgan.

This league will feature eight city-based teams, which will fight against each other in 36 matches over a period of  38 days.

And so even if this doesn't work, we can always go back. Although I think it will. Change is always difficult but I don't see this as change. It probably should have happened a while ago. The purpose of this tournament will be to grow the game,” the southpaw concluded.
