ICC World Cup 2011: Eoin Morgan gets his bag packed for coming to India

Cosmic Cricket is confused whether to be sad for Kevin Pietersen who is ruled out of the world cup, or be happy for the inclusion of Eoin Morgan. In our view, they both are great performers and are the treat to eyes.
Unfortunately, there is no enough fireworks from Pietersen's bat in this world cup, except a half-century against Ireland. He was promoted to an opening position for the world cup, but, despite getting good starts everytime, he could not capitalize them to the big score. 

Here comes Mr. Eoin Morgan, the English middle-order magician from Ireland. Undoubtedly, he is a complete entertainer and a strong pillar in the middle order who has supported and excelled the English batting since his debut. He averaged 38.08 in 61 innings and has already made 4 centuries. As England suffers from middle-order collapse in this world cup matches, his inclusion will certainly help to keep balance in the batting order.

Plus Point: Great form in 2010, averaging 53.15 with strike rate of 93.88. However; the start of 2011 was not fruitful for him, as he struggled to make impact in Australia, much to do with his injury.
Negative Point: He hasn't played any match in India. The only subcontinent nation he played was in Bangladesh, where he scored 230 runs in 6 matches with the average of 46. The world has yet to see what his bat produces on Indian pitches.

The news has come that Pietersen might miss IPL as well. Big shock for Deccan Charger prior to the start of IPL 2011, but injuries have become the part of cricket this year. So many cricket stars are excluded from their respective teams because of injuries. Dwayne Bravo, Praveen Singh, Doug Bolinger are out of the world cup. I hope IPL will not inherit the "injury" culture, otherwise it will become less attractive. 

Meantime, let's welcome Michael Hussey back to Australian team. His inclusion will obviously be a "danger" warning for the opponents. Austrlians are certainly feeling much secured and stronger and their morale level must be high as they are targeting their fourth world cup championship in a row.

World cup is soon entering to the second phase, and the excitement level will increase as only strongest team will survive. It is very important for the teams to keep their playing 11 fit and in form. Let the best team wins the world cup.
