I Will Pass My Ultimate Career Test, Insists Eoin


Byline: by PAUL NEWMAN

Eoin MoRGAn, the Rush native about to be fast-tracked into Test cricket, is adamant he has the patience to bat for five or six hours. 'Mind you,' he said, 'i might get about 400 if i do.

Morgan's ice-cool temperament has earned him his chance, more than a modest first-class average of 36 that slipped to 24 during a mediocre 2009 with Middlesex.

England, simply, think Morgan is made of the right stuff. 'My temperament is a major part of my game and i can take confidence from knowing i've now put performances in under pressure,' he said.
