IPL 2017: Sam Billings & Eoin Morgan Set For An IPL Return After Ireland ODIs

England players Sam Billings and Eoin Morgan are set to make a comeback to the Indian Premier League (IPL) post the completion of ODI series against Ireland. Both the players recently flew to England to take part in the ODI series along with batsman Jason Roy.

Earlier, there was news that the all the three players will be staying there to play county cricket but now it has been confirmed that it will be only Roy who will stay in England and rest of the two players are coming back for another short IPL stay.

Both Billings and Morgan will be available for the next three games for their respective franchises before they along with three other England players will fly to Spain to prepare for the South Africa ODI series and Champions Trophy.

ECB, earlier, had already provided permission to three of their players viz. Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes and Jos Buttler to skip Ireland series and take part in the IPL. Now, Billings and Morgan have also been given an extended deadline, which will be final cut off date for all these five players.

However, both the players haven’t had best of IPL seasons, as Billings, the Delhi Daredevils opener, has scored just 138 runs in the six innings. On the other hand, the England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan, haven’t got enough chances, as he was included in the playing XI in just three games.

Now both Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils are back on the winning ways and it will be difficult for both the players to get into the mix keeping in mind the fact that they will not be part of the side if it qualifies for the next round.

England, the runners up of 2013 Champions Trophy, will face South Africa in the three-match ODI series before the start of champions Trophy, which will be a warm-up series for both the teams in the build-up to the ICC tournament.
