Morgan is surprised he set world record for most sixes in ODI innings

England captain Eoin Morgan was surprised he set a new world record of 17 sixes in an individual one-day international (ODI) innings during their match against Afghanistan on Tuesday. Morgan’s score of 148 helped the team win by 150 runs in 50 overs.

“I’m getting quite old, running around with a bad back, I never thought in my wildest dreams I’d produce an innings like that!” said Morgan after the match ended. “I had an extremely bad back after the last game but our medical staff have done wonders with medication and extensive treatment. I have pretty much been living with the physio.”

This comes after the 32-year old batsman had a back spasm in their match against West Indies where he could not bat.

“It was a special day. It’s the World Cup. We’re loving playing in it. On the big stage, it is nice to do,” added Morgan.

The home team captain stated they prioritize bringing their own level of intensity in every match they play when asked about their chances of winning the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

“We are where we want to be. The next two or three games are pretty crucial,” stated Morgan. “We want to bring our level of intensity to every game. Making that a priority is important to us.”

England’s next match will be against Sri Lanka on Friday at Headingley Carnegie. The home team currently have -1111 odds to win the game while Sri Lanka have +740 odds.
