148 by Morgan is the third highest individual score for England in World Cups after Andrew Strauss's 158 against India in Bengaluru and Jason Roy's 153 against Bangladesh in Cardiff last week. It is also Morgan's highest score in ODI cricket, surpassing the unbeaten 124 against Ireland in Malahide in 2013.

110 runs scored off the nine overs by Rashid Khan is the joint second most of a player in the history of ODI cricket.
