    The ECB are probably loving this. The more Morgan wades in the more it makes their decision look like the correct one as far as I can see.

    Well, said it constantly, Morgan has been a part of the problem from the start of this fracas, you can't slag off a light-hearted Twitter account taking the piss out of KP, then say that someone shouting hate at the players from a mate isn't disruptive. Kp should have asked him to give it a rest or disowned him.

    I can't believe KP is too disappointed about all this. Why even accept the dropping and offer quotes to the ECB press release as he has done if he didn't accept the decision? He's accepted it because he'll get a big payoff from his contract and play the IPL and make even bigger money.

    One of the big problems with KP has seemed to be he wants to play a full season of the IPL and pick and choose which Test, ODIs and T20s to play. Clearly the ECB can't let him play the whole IPL because it clashes with the tests (or this year the Sri Lanka ODIs) - and as such sky and sponsors would probably have grounds to sue- and it's a terrible example to the other players and just opens it up completely.

    In an ideal world all the England team would be allowed to play a full IPL. They should be able to earn the maximum that they can. But ECB have to protect their product and can't have players playing over in the IPL whilst international games go on over here. ECB have a massive problem going forward simply because of the IPL. Players naturally want to go but it clashes with the English season. The only reason there hasn't been a massive exodus to the IPL so far is the competitive wages England players make.

    KP will take the big pay off from his contract and be free to play a full IPL. That will allow him to pick up a massive contract as he is now available for the whole schedule and future editions + he won't have to give his cut back to the ECB as he will be a free agent.

    Sure he'd like to play the big test series and maybe the world t20 and 50 over world cup but in between he'd of wanted to play the whole IPL and have plenty of breaks from the insignificant series in his eyes. The ECB would probably have been a little more accomodating if he hadn't been such a dick throughout his career and they weren't mired in this **** every year.

    Hmm are you sure about that? I'm not at all.

    I wouldn't trust anything Morgan has to say to be honest. The guy is an absolute weasel.

    Haha. I felt like a bit of an idiot when I searched Eoin Morgan on twitter after Fred's post earlier.

    I did exactly the same, thought it seemed a bit out of character for Eoin!
