I mean, forget career aspirations, what if Morgan just feels like living in England or Australia over Ireland? What if he reckons the schools are better for his kids or the chicks are hotter? If he then qualifies to play for his adopted country, so be it. Cricket's a profession like anything else.The bigger moral (and legal) crime in this instance would be restraint of trade.
Thats bad luck, thank god it isn't a "free world" as you put it, New Zealands population would explode as would Australias.
