In this match, England won the toss and elected to bat first. Jason Roy and James Vince opened first and took a start of the game, but Jason Roy was bowled-out earlier by Amir Hamza. Then, it was Joe Root who joined James Vince and both of them took the partnership. James Vince was dismissed when England were on 42-1 in 5.3 overs. Then came Eoin Morgan who was bowled on a very first delivery by Mohammad Nabi. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler just made few runs. But the whole big partnership was between Moeen Ali and David Willey of 57 runs that helped England to set a target of 143 for Afghanistan. Overall, the efforts of Afghani bowlers were tremendous to put world-class team in pressure. Moeen Ali’s really did a hard work to give England a great hope of win. Now is the time for England bowlers and let’s see if Afghanistan’s batting-lineup can chase it down!
Now in the 2nd innings, Mohammad Shahzad and Noor Ali Zadran opened first, but both the wickets were taken out quiet earlier. Asghar Stanikzai and Gulbadin Naib didn’t stayed any longer either. Their whole batting-order kept up with scoring but it didn’t helped them to win the game. Shafiqullah scored 35 runs and stayed not out till the end, but still due to their fall-of-wickets and slow-game, they didn’t reached the target. England took victory again by 15 runs. It’s been a great tournament for them so far, and really bad for Afghanistan. Congratulations to England cricket team for their win!
Well, it’s a better luck for Afghanistan next time, as they have to improve all of their playing aspects with all means. That’s how they’ll be able to fight against tough teams. But still they’ve done it wonderfully, putting the oppositions in pressure. England has improved quiet brilliantly as well. They’ve been in form and reaching the top spot quiet briskly. It’s a good luck for England cricket team.
