Eoin Morgan has led his team from the front while Moeen Ali manufactured a late storm, as England quite convincingly handed South Africa a 72-run defeat in the first ODI. With this victory, England now lead the three-match series 1-0.
Eoin Morgan has been in tremendous form lately. In his last 8 matches, he got as many as three centuries. With the form he is in, he is encouraging the English spectators for something very good this time around in the impending ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at their own backyard.
On Wednesday at Headingley, Leads, England came to bat first after losing the toss, and put up a huge total of 339 for six on the board. In response, South Africa were dismantled for just 267 runs off 45 overs to succumb to a 72-run defeat.
Morgan was the Man of the Match for his outstanding knock of 107 runs off 93 balls that featured 7 fours and 5 sixes. This was the 11th ODI ton for the England skipper.
