IRISH EYES HOPING TO SMILE FOR EOIN
BY RICHARD EDWARDS CRICKET IRELAND haven’t ruled out Eoin Morgan returning to play for the country in white-ball cricket.
(right) retired from international cricket at the end of June, aged 35, after a glorious seven-and-a-halfyear reign that witnessed the transformation of England’s fortunes.
And, according to ICC rules, in three years’ time,
he would be eligible to play for the country of his birth once again. “The ICC require a three-year standout period,” said Warren Deutrom, the CEO of Cricket Ireland.
“Could Eoin return to play for us? Technically, yes. But I’m sure we wouldn’t be the only organisation looking at his services.
“With Eoin’s talent and leadership skills, he can probably do anything he wants. Not least there will be a few commentary boxes graced by his presence.”
