In reply, Afghanistan began cautiously, with Hashmatullah Shadi top-scoring. (76)
Mark Wood and Jofra Archer led the way with the ball, as they bowled with pace and precision. Not to mention, Adil Rashid picked up three wickets as well. 
England albeit, leapfrog the rest of the big guns to occupy a place on the top of the ladder. 

That's all from us, do tune in to Sportskeeda tomorrow, as we bring you the live coverage between South Africa and New Zealand. Until then, good bye. 
That's it. England continue to march on in their bid for the World Cup crown. They win by 150 runs. 
Perhaps the most comprehensive of all victories, the Three Lions amassed a spectacular  397-6 in their 50 overs. 
Skipper Eoin Morgan played one of the classics, smashing a record-breaking 17 sixes in his innings of 148 that came off just 71 deliveries. 
It was not always a plain sail, as the Afghan spinners had bowled tight lines at the right pace consistently. 
However, Jonny Bairstow (90) and the skipper notched a massive partnership, before Moeen Ali launched 31 off just nine deliveries.
