If we trace back Morgan's early career, he was a key player in the Irish youth teams at the Under-17 and the Under-19 level. At the age of 17, he was selected for the Under-19 World Cup to represent Ireland and he was the top-scorer for his team. Two years later, he was chosen as the captain of the Under-19 side, where he finished as the second highest run-getter of the tournament.
Eoin Morgan made 99 in his ODI debut for Ireland against Scotland in August 2006. He is the only player in the history of cricket to have been dismissed for 99 on debut. 'Moggie', as he is nicknamed, then made his maiden ODI century against Canada on 4th February 2007 and became the youngest non-subcontinental player to score a century in ODIs.
The southpaw earned his recognition in England when he represented the England Lions in a tour match against South Africa. He was a part of an unbeaten 113-run partnership with Samit Patel and helped the Lions secure a six-wicket victory. After his notable performances for the English Lions, Morgan was named in the 30-man squad for the ICC World T20. He then had to quit playing for Ireland as he was also chosen in the 15-man squad for the World T20 for England.
Morgan's big break came during the Champions Trophy in South Africa in 2009, where Matt Prior was unavailable, thus paving the way for Morgan to keep wickets and bat for England. He scored back-to-back 60s against Sri Lanka and South Africa, particularly relishing the South African attack while making 67 off 34 balls.
After a disastrous 2015 World Cup, Morgan has revived the England's cricket team style of play and are currently one of the hot favorites for the upcoming Champions Trophy 2017 and World Cup 2019.
