Eoin Morgan has an Irish sounding name and a regular Dublin upbringing behind him but there's something very different about young Eoin, in that he plays for England.

Ireland's most promising young cricketer is now plying his trade with the English team and has given this interview to the Guardian about how "It's been the most phenomenal 10 days of my life".

He is referring to his recent 20-20 World Cup triumph with England and the latest news that he is in line to make his full test debut at Lords on Thursday.

Morgan explains that his family have been playing cricket for four generations and that Rush, his home suburb in north Dublin, "has always been mad about the game. I've never quite worked out why but people in Rush just like cricket. I was helped by the fact that my dad is a cricket fanatic and that my three brothers and two sisters all played. It's just part of our family."

One wonders whether the people of Rush would cheer for Eoin or Moggie as he is affectionately known when he is playing against the team he turned his back on.

Here he is in action for his schools team in 2005
