Cape Town - The Barbados Tridents have called Eoin Morgan, England ODI and T20 captain, into their squad for the remainder of the 2017 Caribbean Premier League (CPL). 

Morgan has played 185 ODIs and 69 T20 internationals scoring more than 7000 runs in those formats. He has been the man in charge of the sea-change in English fortunes in limited overs cricket and captained England to the final of the 2016 ICC World T20. 

Morgan will arrive in Barbados in time for the team’s home leg of the 2017 Hero CPL. His first match will be against the Guyana Amazon Warriors on 29 August at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown. 

Robin Singh, Head Coach of the Tridents said: “If we are to claim our second Hero CPL title we need proven match winners. We have that in Eoin who is not only one of the best white-ball batsmen in the world but also a fantastic presence – both on and off the field.” 

Speaking of his upcoming arrival at Hero CPL Eoin Morgan said: “It’s amazing to be called up by the Tridents. I love coming to Barbados to play cricket. It is such an iconic place where all the greats have played and to get the opportunity to play in such a big tournament is really an honour. I have always wanted to come to Hero CPL, I can’t wait to get there.”
