England skipper Eoin Morgan’s ruthless knock of 148 off just 71 balls saw the hosts grab a 150-run win over Afghanistan and climb to top of the table. Here’s a look at the records that were tumbled during his innigs.
- Morgan hit 17 sixes, most by any player in an ODI inning and the left-hander also became the first batsman to score more than 100 runs in an innings only with sixes.
- England hit as many 25 sixes and went past their own record of smashing 24 maximums which they achieved earlier this year against West Indies.
- 33 sixes were hit in this match, most ever in any World Cup match.
- Eoin Morgan’s century was the fourth fastest in World Cups history.
