IRELAND'S EOIN MORGAN HELPS ENGLAND WIN THE T20

England stormed to a seven-wicket victory over Australia at the Kensington Oval to break their 35-year duck in International Cricket Council tournaments.
Eoin Morgan produced another well-paced innings to guide England home.
In all, he played 23 times for Ireland in ODIs, scoring 744 runs, which included the one century & five 50s, for a batting average of 35.42.

Morgan is the first cricketer to have scored a first-class double century for Ireland with an unbeaten 209 against the United Arab Emirates in February 2007 at Abu Dhabi.
 The only uncertainty on Monday was the name of Kevin Pietersen’s newborn son. Perhaps he should consider Eoin because it is the name on every England fan’s lips after a clean sweep of Super Eight victories was assured by the young Irish star in their batting order.
The ease of England's success in the final of the ICC World Twenty20 made a mockery of previous failures, as Craig Kieswetter and Kevin Pietersen's stand of 111 helped them cruise past Australia's 147 for six - with three full overs to spare.
Kieswetter (63) hit six fours and a six in his 40-ball 50 and Pietersen was almost as dominant in a run chase which became no-contest long before captain Paul Collingwood clubbed the winning runs.
Strange to see an Irishman playing with and celebrating in and England victory, although, it must be said that Ireland have a few overseas players themselves in Trent Johnston and Andre Botha.
