Eoin Morgan achieves another award

England achieved the World Cup title for the first time in their cricket history after defeating New Zealand in a dramatic final which went right down to the wire. England triumphed by the barest of margins on the basis of a boundary count as scores were tied even after the end of the Super Over.

Still engulfed in the World Cup hangover, skipper Eoin Morgan recently collected the Sportsmen of the Year award by the British GQ Magazine on behalf of the England team, marking the first instance when a group of cricketers has won the prestigious award.

This shows the rising popularity of cricket in England as their World Cup triumph has done wonders to escalating the levels of interest in the sport affording the winning squad a celebrity-like status.
