Eoin Morgan became England's first captain to win a Cricket World Cup trophy for his country. The 32-year-old has become a pivotal figure in his country's cricket folklore, and is known for spirit and sportsmanship. Recently, Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan took to Twitter, calling the Englishman, a "legend".
Morgan had accepted an Afghan family's request to play cricket with them, and shared a picture of it on Twitter. Rashid replied to the tweet, by simply writing, "Legend".
The left-handed batsman had tweeted, "On the walk home from dinner this evening I was asked to play a game with this lovely Afghan family.. #ThePowerofsport".
