Eoin Morgan believes there is “no limit” to what England can achieve after they successfully chased down 223 to claim a 2-1 Twenty20 series victory over South Africa at Centurion.

The Proteas laid down the gauntlet with a mammoth 222 for six in the decider but half-centuries from Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow laid the foundations in the reply before Morgan himself took centre stage.

It was only the second time in their history that England had chased down a 200-plus total in the format but ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year, it strengthens the view that no score is beyond them.  Morgan agreed with that assessment.

“It creates belief that you can chase down anything and it reinforces what our method is in chasing big totals down,” the Dubliner said. “It’s a reference point to what we can do, there’s no limit. You want to leave everything out there.”
