England may have won the 2nd T20 at Cardiff to level the series. However, skipper Eoin Morgan still feels that the hosts need to work out their middle order.

"We're two years out from a T20 WC, we haven't devised what our best top six is yet. The majority of our top six want to open the batting, but it's about finding the best combination for the team in order to win the T20 WC in 2020, or at least come close to compete,” Morgan was quoted as saying in a CricBuzz report.

One of the starts of England’s victory on Friday was Alex Hales with an unbeaten 58. And, Morgan was effusive in praise of the batsman. "He really did play brilliantly. He's played a lot of T20 International cricket, and he's obviously played a lot around the world, and he certainly used that,” added Morgan.

"Having the composure to play quite a mature innings, as he did. He's not known as a big hitter but anybody who watched the game at Trent Bridge will realise he hits the ball quite a long way, even yorkers,” the England skipper went on to say.
