Eoin Morgan went past 50 as he powered England to victory by seven wickets against Pakistan
Bye for now. Thanks for your company and correspondence through the afternoon – a pleasure to be with you, as always. Be sure to stick with the OBO throughout the England vs Pakistan ODI series, beginning on Wednesday afternoon at The Oval. Keep an eye on the site for Vic’s report and enjoy your bank holiday! Night.
England have won their most recent five T20s. Eight out of their last ten. Obviously, this isn’t the format on people’s minds at the moment – nor should it be. But casting ahead to 2020, there is a World Cup in the format later that year.
Morgan post-play said as you would expect: his young team are happy and everything helps in terms of the World Cup ahead of them. He explained that the challenge today was very different to the one they dealt with, albeit just, on Friday in Ireland. He said with the ball they weren’t near their best but was complimentary of Tom Curran, which is a good sign for the young man.
