Cool Head Is Making Eoin a Smash Hit


Byline: PAUL NEWMAN reports from Guyana

AFTER their lucky escape a gainst Ireland, England, the team who oneday cricket lef t behind, rush into the second phase of the World Twenty20 with a man who is becoming the most inventive limitedovers batsman in the game.

Rush native Eoin Morgan, born and bred in Ireland and now completing his education at the international game's finishing school, will play for England in Barbados with the perfect opportunity to show the world just how brilliant he has become.

'He's an interesting character who brings a lot to our dressing room -- as well as when he's got a bat in his hands.'

A callow Morgan did not always shine in Irish green but now captain Porterfield must rue the day his best friend left to pursue the year-round, high-profile cricket England can offer. …
