“The last couple of days have been great. Feels good to be among this group. To post a big score like that and then Jos coming in at the end and he is a world of his own, it is absolutely amazing – probably the reason why he is the best white-ball cricketer in the world. When the guys come in and play with the mantra we have been playing for the last 6 years, it’s great. We have not played a lot of 50-over cricket recently, it’s important to have such situations going into the World Cup in India next year” said England captain Eoin Morgan at the end of the match.
