Over 50. 1 run. Bowler: Jofra Archer. Afghanistan: 8-247(rr 4.94)
49.6
.
Jofra Archer to Ikram Ali Khil. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Rashid. The last ball is another nasty short one that hits the batsman on the helmet. A rare maiden then in the final over of the 100. Afghanistan bat out their overs for the first time this tournament. They were never really in with a chance of chasing down that massive total. There were some positive signs from their middle order though who put together some decent partnerships in the middle of the innings. So England move to the top of the table on a day when it rained sixes and records tumbled. Eoin Morgan was the star of the show as the England batsmen take it in turns to score centuries in this tournament. That's all from me here at Old Trafford, join us again tomorow for more World Cup action.
