There are some rare feats in the world of cricket which are termed 'Rare' because they don't happen very often but when they do, it does surprise the ardent cricket followers. In cricket, surprises lie at every corner and that is what makes this game such a cherished sport.

When talking about cricket, there is one thing that has started swirling in the minds of cricket enthusiasts and that is the upcoming edition of ICC Cricket World Cup. The World cup is a spectacle which is celebrated by millions. While witnessing a World Cup is truly special, participating in one is an altogether different phenomenon. Players strive to make it to a World Cup squad and those who do, register themselves in the history books of cricket.

In those history books, there lies a column which comprises of 4 men, who represented two different nations at the Cricket World Cup. It is a genuinely proud feeling to represent a nation at a World Cup but representing two countries at the prestigious tournament just gives proud a new meaning.

On that note, we list down 4 men who have represented 2 different countries at Cricket World Cup:

#4 Eoin Morgan (Ireland & England)

It is utterly astounding to note that an Irishman could become the first man ever to captain England to World Cup glory. Eoin Morgan, the English skipper has been instrumental in the rebuilding process of England's ODI side and such tremendous has been their progress that after that debacle in 2015, England is considered as favourites for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Morgan has not only been an influential leader but a dynamic batsman as well. The Irishman has raked in loads of runs during this period and is a rock-solid presence in the middle order for England.

Back in 2007, Morgan played his very first World Cup as he represented Ireland at the grand tournament in the Carribean. 4 years later he experienced the spectacle yet again but this time in the English colours and rest, as they say, we all know!

Morgan went on to become England's leading runscorer and their skipper. The Irishman led the English contingent at the 2015 Cricket World Cup, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
