National selector James Whitaker expects Eoin Morgan to be reinstated as England's one-day international captain in India, despite the batsman opting to miss the tour of Bangladesh.

Morgan and Alex Hales each opted against travelling to Bangladesh due to security concerns, the former's unavailability leading to Jos Buttler taking the reins of the 50-over side.

Speculation has been rife over Morgan's international future in the wake of his decision, yet Whitaker has indicated the middle-order batsman will reassume the captaincy when England play limited-overs matches in India at the beginning of 2017.

"Eoin has done exceptionally well as captain," Whitaker was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

"Over the last couple of years he's established a really good leadership base. He's done a marvellous job.

"It's slightly disappointing that he's turned this opportunity down [to tour Bangladesh], but we expect him to be captain in India.

"At the same time, we'll review as we do after every series. Other people will come in and put pressure on those guys. All I'll say is, I expect him to be captain in India."
