England vs Australia World Cup 2019: Eoin Morgan Looked Scared, Says Kevin Pietersen

On June 18 at Old Trafford, Eoin Morgan was ablaze. He broke the record-breaking record for most sixes in an ODI inning by any batsman – over the span of a 71-ball 148, Morgan crushed 17 sixes. Before the day's over, England had hustled away to a 150-run win.

Precisely seven days after the fact at Lord's, a semi-last the compartment was hanging in the balance for England, hosts of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. A stun thrashing to Sri Lanka implied England expected to win 2 of their 3 remaining matches against Australia, India and New Zealand. What's more, it was at Lord's that England expected to get one over their old cricket most despised opponents.

Be that as it may, in chase of 286, England were all adrift as Australian left-arm seamers ruled. James Vince and Joe Root were back when Eoin Morgan, the man with the most sixes in an ODI inning strolled in to bat. Yet, Afghanistan and Australia are various suggestions.

Eoin Morgan confronted 6 balls before top-edging a short ball from Mitchell Starc – he was gotten out by Pat Cummins at fine leg.

England's chase was in shambles.

Kevin Pietersen, the previous England batsman, made a telling point in a tweet after Morgan fell.

Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes looked firm enough after the early difficulties yet Pietersen's worries were substantial.

For a side which bragged rupturing the 500-run mark in the World Cup, England's batsmen have been really normal since that Afghanistan game. They neglected to pursue down 233 against Sri Lanka at Leeds and against Australia, the England top-request was shaken by unadulterated pace.
