Profile

Unorthodox Irish batsman Eoin Morgan’s achievements will forever seem tainted by his switch to lucrative England to represent the Three Lions in international cricket.

After successful youth stints for Middlesex, Morgan made his ODI debut for Ireland in 2006 against Scotland, but then switched to England ahead of the 2009 World Twenty20. He played his first game in English colours in 2009 against the West Indies in Bristol. An extended opportunity came in the 7-match ODI series at home against Australia, where he featured on six occasions with top-scores of 43 and 58, showcasing a penchant for the reverse sweep. He later represented England in the World Twenty20, playing a solitary game against the Netherlands. He continued to perform well in both formats, with ODI centuries against Bangladesh and Australia in 2010. The left-hander’s ability to finish an innings drew comparisons to Australian Michael Bevan.

After playing a crucial role in England’s World T20 success in 2010, Morgan was given his premier Test cap against the touring Bangladesh. He retained his place to face Pakistan a month later, where he also scored his maiden Test hundred. Later, in 2011, he was appointed as Stuart Broad’s deputy in the T20 format. While many may doubt Moggie’s loyalty for turning against his home country, delving into a professional’s need to challenge himself with and against the best in the business, may render those doubts harsh.
