Gayle flies the flag for India-Pakistan and Morgan's six appeal - Cricket World Cup week in review


The third week of the Cricket World Cup saw highlights aplenty as great rivals India and Pakistan met at Old Trafford before England's Eoin Morgan set a new world record.

Morgan crashed a remarkable 17 sixes – the most by an individual in an ODI innings – as the hosts thumped Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Kane Williamson displayed his enduring class with a superb century in a tight run chase for New Zealand against South Africa, and David Warner set a new benchmark for the top score at the tournament.
