Video and statistics highlights from England v Afghanistan match

Eoin Morgan would not have imagined that he would create a world record after he chose to bat first against Afghanistan.

A crushing victory for England against the minnows at The Old Trafford pushed them to number one in the points table. There was no stopping since the time they won the toss, and now they have four wins in 5 games.

Eoin Morgan would not have imagined that he would create a world record after he chose to bat first against Afghanistan. England got a new opener for this ODI, James Vince, who has replaced an injured Jason Roy. Vince and Bairstow added 46 runs in 9.3 overs before Mujeeb caught Vince off Dawlat Zadran’s bowling.

In comes the man in form, Joe Root, who added 120 runs for the 2nd wicket. Bairstow was marching towards his first World Cup hundred, but Afghan skipper Gulbadin took the catch off his bowling. A disappointed Bairstow became the first victim of the nervous nineties of this tournament.

After that, it was just Morgan’s show. When he scored his first run of the innings, Root was on 47, by the time Root added 41 more runs to his tally, Morgan has added 142. Yes, 189 runs partnership of which Morgan who destroyed the bowling scored 142 runs. He smashed 17 sixes, the most by any batsman in ODI innings, fastest hundred for England in World Cup and 4th fastest by anyone in World Cup history.

Just after hitting his 17th six, Morgan lost his wicket. But that didn’t change the tempo of innings. Moeen Ali thrashed the bowlers all over the park; he smashed 31 runs off just nine balls with four sixes which helped England to reach 397 in their 50 overs, an English record.

Afghanistan had nothing to lose in this situation. Although they lost the first wicket in second over, they batted much better compared to their previous four outings in the tournament. Gulbadin Naib (37), Rahmat Shah (46), Hasmatullah Shahidi (76), and Asghar Afghan (44) contributed a significant chunk of runs in Afghanistan’s total of 247. They also added in most sixes in a world cup match record. Jofra and Rashid took three wickets each. England won by 150 runs.
