Proteas look to avenge 2015 semifinal defeat against Kiwis at Birmingham

England beat Afghanistan by 150 runs in a league match in Manchester in the ICC Cricket World Cup last night. Chasing the target, Afghanistan made 247 for 8 in the stipulated 50 overs. For England, Eoin Morgan slammed a majestic 148 off 71 while   Jonny Baitstow scored 90 and Joe Root 88. England’s innings was about Eoin Morgan and also about records.

Sixes outnumbered fours as England hit 25 sixes and 21 fours. Jofra Archer and Adil Rashid scalped three wickets for England as Afghanistan could only muster 247 for 8 in 50 overs. Earlier, England set a 398 run victory target for Afghanistan after losing 6 wickets. In today’s match, New Zealand will face South Africa at Birmingham at 3 p.m.

With pacer Lungi Ngidi back in the side, South Africa will look to avenge their 2015 semifinal defeat while New Zealand will aim to reclaim their position at the top when the two sides clash at Edgbaston Stadium. India will take on Afghanistan in their next encounter at Southampton on Saturday.
