Were any 4 of Lamb, Smith, Hick, Caddick, McCague, Phil DeFreitas, Gladstone Small and Devon Malcolm ever in the team at the same time? No, you don't need to live in a country to have its passport, but if you have no relation to said country then you do need to live there in order to earn a passport. I really don't get why you think England have done something wrong here. Morgan - okay, I can see the eligibility rules screw Ireland over, but really there's nothing new in this.
