England's Root relishing 'ridiculous' Morgan World Cup fireworks

189 - English batsmen Joe Root and Eoin Morgan put up a 189-run stand for the third wicket which is the highest partnership record for England in World Cup.

The 17 sixes are the most by a batsman in a one-day global, one better than the previous record shared by Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rohit Sharma.

The 20-year-old spinner surpassed New Zealand's Martin Snedden who had conceded 105 runs for two wickets against England in 1983 World Cup.

Morgan's tally surpassed the record of 16 sixes in an ODI innings previously shared by India's Rohit Sharma, South Africa's A.B.de Villiers and the West Indies' Chris Gayle.

The group game between the highest- and lowest-ranked teams was barely a contest, with Afghanistan finishing 247-8 to slump to their fifth consecutive defeat.

It seemed the 24-year-old was about to retire but, donning a new helmet, Shahidi carried on to top-score for Afghanistan with 76 in an otherwise lopsided 150-run loss.

England's 397 is their highest total in a World Cup match and the sixth-highest ever in the competition.

It is worth mentioning that two key players from the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) were up against each other in a World Cup clash for their respective national teams.

Jason Roy, who was injured and missed the Afghanistan game, has the highest ODI score for England with 180 against Australia past year.

Morgan's century was the fourth-fastest in a World Cup match, hit off 57 deliveries.

The England captain had been an injury doubt having been laid low by a painful back spasm but proved himself more than fit for goal as he hammered his way into the history books with a merciless 148 in only 71 balls. It also meant that Morgan scored 102 with just 17 sixes.

After Rashid Khan's expensive spell against England in the World Cup 2019, where he conceded 110 runs in nine overs, the Afghan worldwide became the most expensive bowler in a World Cup match and second most expensive bowler in ODI cricket. Along with 17 sixes, Morgan managed just 4 fours, a testament to his desire for hitting maximums and clearing the ropes. Morgan, adjudged the Player of the Match, said everything went England's way from the start in Manchester.

Morgan's knock was made more remarkable by the fact that he struggled with back spasms during the last game against West Indies and had to face a late fitness test in order to play against Afghanistan. He was hammered for 110 runs off his nine overs (the most expensive nine-over spell in ODI history), including a record 11 sixes.
