Eoin Morgan - A Modern-day Legend

Hailing for Ireland, Eoin Morgan is one of only four players to have represented two nations at the World Cup. Back in 2006, Morgan made his Ireland debut against Scotland and unfortunately got out at 99. Since making the controversial switch to England, he has had his fair share of highs and lows. He led the England team in the 2015 World Cup and got knocked out in the group stage itself. On the other hand, he was a key catalyst of remarkable change in the ECB that culminated with them winning the 2019 World Cup. All through, the English cricketer has been regarded as a reliable yet courageous stroke player and often commended for his role as the team’s finisher. Eoin Morgan, although a very private man off the field, lets his bat do the talking on the field.
