The Afghanistan Cricket team has been defeated by England in its second group stage match in the World T20 Championship at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Friday.
The England team won the match by a huge margin of 116 runs. With this defeat, the Afghan team has been knocked out of the tournament. It was a very poor performance by the Afghan team. Their bowlers were wayward, while, the batsmen looked helpless in front of the short pitched deliveries.
The Afghan players had performed decently in their previous match against India. But, they didn’t manage to show the same kind of intensity on the field on Friday. The bowlers started well and Shapoor Zadran knocked over Kieswetter in the very first over of the match.
