2012 Season Statistics
|Birth Date||10 September 1986|
An Irish-born Englishman with a reputation for inventive and audacious stroke-play. A compact left-hander, Morgan grew up playing hurling and with his change-up sweeps and pulls. He has clearly adopted aspects of that Irish sport into his cricket. At the age of 23, he shot to prominence on the back of two match-winning innings against South Africa. With a blend of nous and power, Morgan looks a natural finisher. His powerful shot-making and calm under pressure 183 runs helped England to their first triumph in a global limited-overs event during the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010.
