The Dubliner's 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 win over the West Indies, in which he could not bat. They are what the World Cup should be about.
Morgan equaled Chris Gayle's World Cup record of 16 sixes - for the West Indies against Zimbabwe in 2015 - with a six over long-on to move to 142, and went one better when he flat-batted a Gulbadin Naib delivery straight back over the bowler's head and into the rope. Along with 17 sixes, Morgan managed just 4 fours, a testament to his desire for hitting maximums and clearing the ropes. The fastest was 50 balls in 2011 by Kevin O'Brien for Ireland against England.
"I know we've played like this for four years now, and there's been some remarkable things, but to do it in a World Cup game speaks volumes about how Eoin wants the team to play and the values we've kept going throughout those four years". They have already hit 47 of them in five games in 2019.

Meyer wrote that he told Harper "to set the child down" and she "became loud, verbally abusive, and refused our commands". The vehicle first stopped and a woman got out, then the auto stopped again which is when the officers made contact.
11 Sixes conceded by Rashid Khan - the most by a bowler in an ODI.
But after hogging the headlines in a 150-run victory, Morgan revealed he took even himself by surprise and was elated to prove he could compete with the likes of Jos Buttler and the best of his side's big-hitters.
Tuesday's match was tough on Afghanistan bowling star Rashid Khan, who conceded the second-most expensive figures in one-day global history with a return of 0-110 in nine overs.
The 17 sixes are the most by a batsman in a one-day global, beating the previous record by one shared by three others. Jason Holder deserves a mention here for suffering the fate twice at the hands of AB de Villiers. There was also a positive outcome for Afghanistan, with the total surpassing its 232 against Sri Lanka in Dunedin four years ago as their highest at a World Cup. Their previous highest partnership was made by Dennis Amiss and Keith Fletcher when they put up 176 runs against India at Lord's in the inaugural match of 1975 World Cup.
