    Just watching India v. Australia from The Oval in London.

    In other words, a home game for the Indians.

    Once again, a match is abandoned due to rain

    This has been the pattern over the past 10 days and at this rate the tournament will never get going!

    Check out this catch - by far the best of the tournament up to now and the 'best ever', according to some ...

    England beat New Zealand in thrilling Cricket World Cup final



    England: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Jonny Bairstow, 3 Joe Root, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 Ben Stokes, 6 Jos Buttler (wkt),7 Chris Woakes, 8 Liam Plunkett, 9 Adil Rashid, 10 Jofra Archer, 11 Mark Wood.



    New Zealand: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Henry Nicholls, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Tom Latham (wkt), 6 Colinde Grandhomme, 7 Jimmy Neesham, 8 Lockie Ferguson, 9 Mitchell Santner, 10 Matt Henry, 11 Trent Boult.












    Fromthe Dubs' ball boy to World Cup winning captain



    Eoin Morgan with the Cricket World Cup trophy



    Cricket World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan
    used to kick the balls back to Dublin's footballers at training as they got ready for their 1995 All-Ireland win.


    Morganwas born and bred in Rush, north county Dublin, and he played cricket forIreland before he made the switch to England more than ten years ago.


    Eoin’sfather Joe was, and still is, head groundsman at Trinity College’s sportsground in Santry and the family used to live onsite.


    TheBoys in Blue, hurling and football, trained there on-and-off for more than adecade and Joe’s sports-mad kids were regulars observers at the sessions. "Theywere always around," said Paul Clarke, who was part of the Dubs side thatwon Sam Maguire in ’95, when they beat Tyrone after a controversial final atCroke Park. Insubsequent years Clarke became a friend of the Morgan family through his workin the emergency services at Dublin Airport.



    Speakingto RTÉ Sport, he said: "I’m always following how Joe and Eoin are doing.It’s great to see him reach international recognition, travelling the world andbeing recognised at the highest level."




    Morgan shows his football skills at Ireland training at the 2007 Cricket World Cup

    Morgan is 32 years old and he would have only been eight back in 1995.While he might have been a Dubs fan, cricket and rugby were his number ones ports. He was a promising player with the oval ball in his secondary school days at Dublin's CUS, but the bat and ball game was always his calling. Morgan was earmarked for a professional career from an early age and he made his Ireland international debut as a teenager in 2003. Having travelled over to be part of Middlesex’s county cricket youth set-up during school holidays he made the move full-time across the water and was then given his full England debut in 2009.



    An Irishman and Dub who gathered footballs at training in Santry Ave during our All Ireland year '95 now captains England to cricket World Cup. Who'd have guessed what would happen nearly 30yrs later. Well done

    Plenty of Irish cricketers have lined out for England in the past and it’s one of the few routes for cricketers in this country to fulfil their sporting potential and make a good living from the game.

    It quickly became clear that he wasn’t going to make a Test cricketer and he concentrated on the shorter form of the sport – 50-over one day internationalsand T20 rather than the five-day game.

    He reached the very pinnacle on Sunday when he led England to the most-dramatic of world cup final win over New Zealand at Lord’s in London, the spiritual home of the game.

    Well done England.
