Eoin Morgan thinks his England side played “played extremely well” as they bounced back to winning ways against India on Sunday.
It was an impressive performance by England and they got off to the perfect start as Jonny Bairstow, who smashed 111 runs, put on an opening stand of 160 with fit again Jason Roy.
“We played extremely well. Jason Roy and Bairstow at the top were magnificent to watch,” Morgan said. “The continuation of partnerships throughout took us to a formidable total.
“Our bowlers bowled well too. Liam Plunkett has been outstanding for us for four years, absolutely outstanding, particularly in that middle period of the innings.
“No game in this tournament is easy. Every game has been extremely tough and it will continue to be.”
Matt Carter, who made his first-class debut in 2015, will now remain at Trent Bridge until the end of the 2021 campaign.
Bairstow has been reprimanded by the ICC after using “an audible obscenity”.
On this day: Armistice, Inzi, Healy and y = f(x)…
Deepak Chahar recorded the best bowling figures in T20 international history as India sealed a 2-1 series win against Bangladesh.
Because everyone loves quantifying performances.
The future’s bright, the future’s England.

“We don’t want to keep this happening”… neither do New Zealand.
