Former England captain Eoin Morgan has been appointed as the new president of the Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA).

Morgan succeded Charlotte Edwards, who captained England Women, and became the 10th individual to hold the role.

"Having been a PCA member for 19 years, it gives me an overwhelming sense of gratitude and honour to be provided this prestigious opportunity," Morgan said.

"As we navigate through an ever-changing landscape of cricket, the role of the PCA is even more critical. We must ensure that the organisation adapts and innovates to safeguard the evolving needs of our players, to enable them to thrive on and off the field,"

"I am also looking forward to supporting the Professional Cricketers' Trust which has always been close to my heart and will hopefully enable me to give something back to the game," he added.

Morgan, who retired from cricket in February 2023, made 379 international appearances for Ireland and England, scoring over 10,000 runs and captaining the latter to World Cup glory in 2019.
