On other way, a very important match for England for getting into the semis. This is for two, first seeing their negative run-rate to overcome it. And, second making their second spot for the semis.
England – After winning beautifully against South Africa, England looks in good touch. The opening look amazing, but when it comes to middle-order, England need to take care of that. The pacer hasn’t much shown there strength, except the spinner.
It will be interesting to see, how England pace up their innings. All, they need to do is win by a bigger margin.
Afghanistan – Well disappointing after what all they did after to qualify for the Super-10. The middle-order just look shaky, and just dependent on the in-form players.
Spinner have doing their job, they will have to step-up at least for their fans.
