Sports Desk: Eoin Morgan, who led England to their first World Cup title last week, is set for his maiden Bangladesh Premier League stint, after signing up with Dhaka Dynamites for the upcoming season.

In 2016, Morgan had expressed his concerns about going to Bangladesh following a terrorist attack in Dhaka in July. He and Alex Hales eventually withdrew from England's squad due to security reasons.

Morgan has played 268 T20s, scoring 5652 runs at a strike-rate of 128.25. Morgan's next assignment after the World Cup is the Euro T20 Slam, where he will represent the Dublin franchise. Morgan will then join another World Cup star Shakib Al Hasan at Dhaka later this year.
