Melbourne - Eoin Morgan's dreadful run of form with the bat has spilled over into the Cricket World Cup, the England captain dismissed for his fourth duck in five innings during the opening match against Australia on Saturday.

Morgan miscued a pull shot and Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin dived forward and to his left to take an excellent catch to leave England reeling at 73-5 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, chasing a massive first innings total of 342-9.

The 28-year-old, who replaced Alastair Cook as one-day skipper late last year, has now scored 0, 0, 2, 0, 121, 4, 0, 5 from his last eight one-day international innings.

He also scored a duck in the World Cup warmup against Pakistan in Sydney on Wednesday.
