Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting with 171 sixes in 324 matches is third in the list.
Morgan got out after scoring 106 runs. His innings was studded with 15 fours and four glorious sixes. England were folded for 328 runs within fifty overs.
The Morgan led side had already sealed the three-match ODI series against Ireland after winning the second game by four wickets on August 1. (ANI)
