Mumbai: The match between Afghanistan and England in Manchester saw a rare moment in the second innings when a pitch invader tried to steal the bails during the game.

However, he found it difficult to dislodge the bails despite repeated attempts.

 

The 'Zing bails' have grabbed all the headlines in recent times after failing to dislodge despite the ball hitting the stumps.

Eoin Morgan rewrote the record books on Tuesday, by smashing 17 sixes - the most in a one-day international inning.  

His blistering century helped England thrash Afghanistan by 150 runs at Old Trafford.

Morgan smashed a career-best 148 — with 118 coming from sixes and fours — off 71 balls to power England to 397-6, their highest World Cup total.

England won their fourth game of the tournament, and are currently sitting second in the table with eight points.
