Cricket World Player of the Week - Eoin Morgan


Eoin Morgan led England to the fourth highest-ever T20I chase with a swashbuckling half-century off just 21 deliveries, the fastest by an England player.

Morgan ended the three-match T20I series against South Africa as the top-scorer with 136 runs from three innings at an average of 68 and a strike rate of 170.

The skipper was disappointed after he failed to take the team over the line despite an impressive half-century at a strike rate of over 150 in the series opener. He made amends in the decider.

Morgan came out to bat with England at 144-3 after 12.3 overs and still a long way to go in pursuit of 223. The game could have gone in South Africa's direction at that point with Dawid Malan soaking up 12 deliveries for just 11 runs.

Morgan picked singles off his first four deliveries and deposited Dwayne Pretorius over deep mid-wicket for a six off his fifth delivery. From that point on, it was carnage.
