That's all from us for today. 
Do tune in to Sportskeeda tomorrow as the World Cup extravaganza continues, with South Africa taking on Bangladesh. 

Until next time, goodbye. 
With that, Australia have comprehensively outplayed Afghanistan and got off the mark in this World Cup. 
Right from the first over when Mitchell Starc got a pacy delivery to send the off stump cartwheeling, they were on top of the game. 
Three wickets for Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa helped the cause, as a struggling Afghanistan outfit scraped to 207. 
In reply, Aaron Finch (66) took over the mantle of scoring and imperiously spearheaded the innings. 
David Warner performed the role of an anchor and fine-tuned his innings to near perfection, finishing on 89*. 

On a pacy, healthy wicket, Australia's extra pace wreaked havoc, while Afghanistan were given a reality check in the second innings. Overall, the defending champions thrived in all three departments. 
34.5 FOUR! Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Glenn Maxwell. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs.
That's a shame. Smith will be absolutely gutted with himself. 
34.4 OUT! Caught. Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Steven Smith. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Zazai.
34.3 Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Steven Smith. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Naib.
34.2 Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Zurmatai.
34.1 Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ur Rahman.
Just four required now. Target should be achieved by the next over for sure, given how comfortable these two are looking at the crease.

Did you know?
