Eoin Morgan agrees Sydney Thunder return

England batsman Eoin Morgan agrees to play four matches in the Big Bash League for the Sydney Thunder.

Sydney Thunder have confirmed that Eoin Morgan will represent them in the upcoming Big Bash League.

The England batsman represented the Thunder in last year's event, where he hit 118 runs.

The 28-year-old has now agreed to play in another four matches this time around, before he is expected to link up with the England squad for the one-day international World Cup.

"Having someone of Eoin's ability return this season is a major boost for the club. He showed during BBL03 that he is a quality player who knows how to deliver in big games. He is a great fit within our group because of his winning attitude and experience," Thunder's general manager Nick Cummins told the club's official website.

Morgan's England teammates Michael Lumb and Alex Hales have also agreed to play in the BBL with the Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes respectively.
