Eoin Morgan insists he doesn't regret the decision to swap his native Ireland jersey for an England one.
The Dubliner was raised in Rush and played for Ireland between 2006 and 2009 before declaring for England, where his mother was born and lived until aged 12.
Ireland were not a Test nation at the time, and indeed only became one last year, which was the primary factor behind Morgan's decision.
Ironically, however, it is in the limited overs form of the game that he has excelled, captaining England to World Cup glory last week.
"No regrets at all," Morgan told RTÉ Sport's John Kenny at the Euro T20 Slam draft.
"My ambition as a kid was always to play Test match cricket.
"That has obviously changed over the last four or five years, since I got left out of the Test team in 2012/13.
"Since then my journey has taken a path that feels completely natural."
Morgan's team clinched the trophy with a nail-biting victory over New Zealand that went down to the last ball.
He hopes that the dramatic nature of the victory will help to inspire the next generation of cricketers.
"I've been on a high since Sunday," he said. "Just the most incredible game of cricket anybody has ever seen."
"It's great for the game I love. Everybody has a story about how they switched the channel to watch the super over or how a young boy or girl, who wasn't necessarily always interested in cricket, now wants to pick up a bat or a ball.
"As a player that's extremely cool."
