England captain Eoin Morgan admitted he wasn't sure he was capable of such a performance after his record-breaking innings against Afghanistan at the World Cup.

Morgan hit 17 sixes, an ODI record, in his 148 from 71 balls which, along with Joe Root's 90, led the hosts to a 150-run win to take them top of the round robin standings.

"Today's a fantastic day for us. I managed to have a day out, which was great. A good day all round and we're delighted," said Morgan.

"I didn't think at any stage it was going to be my day. I never thought in my wildest dreams I could do something like that so it makes it a bit more special."
