Eoin Morgan’s IPL snub ‘can win him a Test place’

Posted on 18/02/2014 in Cricket

Eoin Morgan has a good chance of winning his Test spot back, according to new England selector Angus Fraser.

The Irish-born batsman has decided against a lucrative stint in the IPL, opting instead to stay in Middlesex and try to earn a place in the England Test side.

England will not be in five-day action until a June series against Sri Lanka, but many changes are expected as the team looks to rebuild following a shambolic 5-0 Ashes whitewash.

Kevin Pietersen and Graeme Swann will certainly not be there, while doubts remain over Jonathan Trott's future.

"I think he's made the right decision in withdrawing from the IPL and coming to play some county cricket this summer. He's given himself an excellent chance of putting himself in the frame," Fraser told Sky Sports News.
