Eoin Morgan hailed England's win over Ireland in Malahide as 'fantastic' after the visitors recovered from 48-4 to chase down 270.

Morgan, the England captain, and Ravi Bopara both cracked sublime hundred's as the pair put on a world record stand of 226.

The duo scripted a record 226–run partnership that left the Irish bowlers shocked after they seemed to have had a firm grip on the match early on.
It was a skipper's knock from Morgan ably supported by Bopara. It looked like yet another upset from the Irish side since the 2011 World Cup when England were four down for 48. However the sensational 226-run partnership powered England from a precarious situation to a comfortable victory.
