Morgan sets new sixes record as England pile up 397 against Afghanistan

Roy will be missing his next two matches of the ICC World Cup 2019 owing to a hamstring injury

Hashmatullah Shahidi (76), Asghar Afghan (44) and Rahmat Shah (46) helped Afghanistan to their highest total in the World Cup but they stay rooted to the bottom of the points table, which England now head after their fourth victory.

No fewer than 17 sixes, a century of runs in their own right, flew effortlessly from the blade of a relatively slight figure compared to so numerous modern-day power-hitters.

Morgan struck a record 17 sixes - the most number of sixes by a player in an ODI innings - and 4 fours during his scintillating knock which saw the wheels coming out of Afghanistan's bowling unit.

England captain Eoin Morgan set a new world record for the most sixes in a one-day global innings, with 17 in his 148 against Afghanistan during the ICCWorld Cup 2019 at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Take walking out of the equation and deal nearly exclusively in boundaries instead.

According to Target's customer service Twitter account, the company is aware of the problem and attempting to fix the issue. Target, which has more than 1,800 stores across the US , said it would "provide an update as soon as possible".

His innings, which featured 118 runs in boundaries, was all the more impressive as Morgan had been doubtful for this match with a back spasm suffered in England's eight-wicket win over the West Indies, in which he could not bat.

That terrible tournament actually ended with England defeating Afghanistan in a dead rubber and Morgan fearing his captaincy might be over before it had really begun. The sheer brutality of the assault by Morgan had to be seen to be believed.

At the other end of the scale Rashid Khan had a bad day with the ball becoming the first spinner to concede over 100 runs in an ODI.

Jason Roy's hamstring injury handed Vince an excellent opportunity to impress but the opener fluffed his pull shot against Dawlat Zadran and departed for 26. We have seen that somewhere before.
