World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan has been selected to represent the Dublin Chiefs as their ‘icon’ player in the upcoming inaugural season of the Euro T20 Slam.
The tournament will be jointly held by the nations of Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands, with a pair of teams representing each country.
The tournament is funded by Indian investors and each of the six teams are allowed a single ‘icon’ player as well as a sole ‘marquee’ player.
The squads will consist of between 16-18 players with a limit of seven overseas recruits set.
