Moreover, he went on to hit 17 sixes in the innings which is the highest by any batsman in an ODI. The previous record was jointly held by Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers with 16 hits out over the fence.

Twitter was full of adulation for Morgan’s splendid session of pinch-hitting. Here we take you across some of the tweets admiring him for his sensational knock.
