Morgan’s last half century in any format came a year ago against Sri Lanka.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the third and final ODI on Wednesday, Livingstone praised England’s World Cup-winning captain and said he feels a score will come soon.

“I think the thing that has been forgotten is Morgs is an unbelievable leader,” Livingstone said. “He is the leader of our team and everybody knows he is only one score away.

“I’m sure that score will come very soon and he’ll be off and running again.”

Jason Roy has also backed Morgan to rediscover his touch with the bat soon after the England captain two successive ducks against the Netherlands.

“That’s just the fickle nature of the sport,” said Roy. “If you’re behind the eight ball it’s quite tough but he’s an incredible worker, an incredible guy so I’m backing him for sure.”

Roy added: “He’s the captain of our side and winning games so I think that means more to him than his scores which makes him more special to play under.

“He will be alright. He’ll be absolutely fine.”
