Morris pulled off near impossible victories in the limited over series against England. Morris with the company of No.10 batsman KagisoRabada chased a target of 263 by scoring an excellent 62 in just 38 balls in a must win ODI match. Against the same opposition in a T20I match, Morris scored 15 runs in the last over of a chase in a low scoring encounter. With his hard hitting ability lower down the order, Morris provides depth in batting.
