The current limited over skipper of England hails from Ireland

Arguably the greatest cricketer produced by Ireland thus far, Eoin Morgan is currently a pivotal member of the English limited overs team.

The fiery left-hander made his cricketing debut for Ireland against Scotland in 2006. With the hope of making it bigger on the world stage, Morgan decided to play for England from 2009. Morgan played 190 ODIs for Ireland and England to date and has amassed 5801 runs at a decent average of 37.92.

The Queenslander was born in Yorkshire in England

One of Australia's brightest cricketing prospects in store, Matt Renshaw was born in Yorkshire, England. His family had moved to New Zealand when he was seven years old and finally shifted to Australia when he turned ten.
Renshaw was brought up in Queensland and played most of his cricket there. After impressing the national selectors with some consistent runs, the tall southpaw was named in the squad facing South Africa in 2016. Renshaw got to make his debut in the third Test of the series and gave everyone a glimpse of his immense potential and talent.Renshaw represented Australia in 10 Test matches thus far and has 623 runs to his credit.


The tall left-arm pacer served England as well as Ireland

The tall left-arm fast bowler from Ireland has the potential to make a batsman's life tough with the awkward bounce and lateral movement that he generates. Born in Londonderry, Ireland, Rankin hailed from a cricket-loving family.
Owing to his bowling prowess, he quickly rose up the ranks and soon debuted for Ireland in 2007. He, however, came into reckoning with his fiery spells in the 2007 ICC World Cup where he claimed 12 wickets.

The southpaw represented both England and Ireland in international cricket

Ed Joyce is the first Irishman to have represented both England and Ireland in international cricket. The talented southpaw, who is considered as one of the best cricketers produced by Ireland, was a member of the English squad for the 2007 ICC World Cup and the 2006-07 Ashes.
Joyce, however, decided to move back to his home country, Ireland, after he couldn't enforce himself into a tightly-packed English side. Joyce received special dispensation from the International Cricket Council (ICC) to represent Ireland in the 2011 World Cup. Since then, the left-handed batsman has been serving the Irish squad and is a key member of their team.Joyce played 71 ODIs combinedly for England and Ireland and amassed 2349 runs at an average of 36.14.


The lively right arm pacer of England has his roots back in Barbados

Jordan was born in Barbados. Both his parents too belonged to Barbados whereas his grandparents were British citizens. After completing his initial education from Bridgetown, Barbados, he eventually moved to England to complete his formal education at Dulwich college which offered him a sports scholarship.
After making his debut for Surrey in 2007 and constantly delivering some good performances, the fast bowler broke onto the international scene with his first appearance for England against Australia. He has represented England in 8 Tests, 31 ODIs, and 26 T20s and picked up 21, 43, and 31 wickets respectively.


Lasith Malinga was much fitter and a lot quicker back then

Between the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, no specialist bowler played more matches or picked up more wickets than Lasith Malinga. From 93 ODIs, the fast bowler picked up 144 wickets at an average of 27.95 and economy-rate of 5.45.
More pertinently, he procured as many as five five wicket-hauls during the four-year phase. Unlike in recent times wherein his form as well as fitness have deteriorated, he was at the top of his game back then and Sri Lanka's bowling plans largely revolved around him.

Saeed Ajmal was the most threatening off-spinner during his heydays

Among all bowlers who picked at least 50 wickets during the four-year phase, Saeed Ajmal's average of 19.57 was comfortably the best. With 134 wickets from 73 matches at an economy-rate of 4.02
and strike-rate of 29.1, the star off-spinner was the lynchpin of Pakistan's bowling attack in the 50-over format. Surprisingly, both of his five-wicket hauls in that particular period came in losing cause.
