Eoin Morgan, England white-ball captain, once again displayed during the 3rd One-day International game against his native Ireland, that why he is one of the most fearsome hitters of a cricket ball in the current era. The English thumped the Irish bowling attack to all corners of the Ageas Bowl to help England get into a commanding position in the third ODI.

After having won the toss and decided to bat first, Morgan found himself on the crease as early as the 4th over after the world champions lost both of their openers in Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow.

With England reeling at 2-14, Morgan player a perfect captains knock to register his 14th hundred in 50-over cricket. On a pitch that showed signs of a hint of movement in the initial overs, Morgan looked like he was batting on a completely different track.

His innings have finesse, elegance, brutality, and astounding authoritativeness, so much so that it looked like a hundred was well and truly in the offing.

The English captain registered his 54th 50+ score- the most by an England batsman in history. Morgan was tested with the shortish stuff but the southpaw dealt it with disdain, smoking them for sixes over deep backward square-leg and fine-leg.

Morgan, who stitched a brilliant 146-run partnership with Tom Banton, racked up his 14th hundred [13th for England] in just 78 balls with a sumptuous straight-drive off Josh Little in the 25th over.

Such was the form that Morgan was in that it looked like a 200+ score might be in the offing for the World Cup-winning captain but Josh Little eventually had the last laugh as Morgan holed out at 106. During the course of his brutal knock, Morgan stroked four sixes and in the process, he broke MS Dhoni’s record [212] for most sixes in ODI cricket by a captain.
