Afghanistan beat England by 69 runs
Right then, that's all from this game and this brings an end to an action-packed weekend. However, the action continues in the 2023 ODI World Cup on Monday, 16th October where Australia will take on Sri Lanka at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. The first ball will be bowled at 2 pm IST (8.30 am GMT) but you can join us early for the build-up as well. Till then, take care and goodbye!
The captain of Afghanistan, Hashmatullah Shahidi says that he is very happy along with the entire team as well as the entire country. He adds by saying that he gives a lot of credit to the opening pair as they set the stage and started the battle really well for the team. He also adds that they are seeing Mujeeb Ur Rahman as an all-rounder as he is batting really well and getting crucial runs for the team as well as picking up those important wickets. He ends by saying that the fans are very proud and they have the believe along with the guys in the team and they believe that they can do wonders in the World Cup.
England's skipper Jos Buttler says that it was a disappointing start to the game as Afghanistan were on top of their game. Credits Afghanistan as they were the better team today. Adds by saying that they bowled straight and at the stumps and were on song with the fielding. He also said that they were hoping more dew to come as a factor but that did not happen.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is the Player of the Match for his exceptional spell. He says that its a proud moment for the team to beat the defending champions England. Adds that for spinners it is hard to bowl in the powerplay as there are only two fielders outside the circle and he has been working on it and its paying off. On the conditions, he says that there was no dew and that's when he was confident enough to get the wickets and push the opposition on the backfoot. He finishes by saying that this Man of the Match trophy is for the people back home who are suffering from the earthquake and he would like to dedicate his performance to those people of Afghanistan.
Earlier in the game, after being inserted into bat, Afghanistan were off to a flying start as Rahmanullah Gurbaz was quick to get off the blocks. His partner, Ibrahim Zadran, did not get much strike but was happy to play the second fiddle. Thanks to Gurbaz's entertaining innings, Afghanistan were able to put the pressure on England. At 114-0, Afghanistan were going along nicely, but once the opening stand was broken, the innings began to implode. Moreover, a mix-up resulting in the departure of Gurbaz made matters worse for them. Despite wickets falling at the other end, Ibrahim Alikhil carried on and showed immense composure to reach his third ODI fifty. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb's handy cameos in the back end of the innings propelled Afghanistan to over 280. For England, Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers, with figures of 3 for 42 from his 10 overs. Mark Wood accounted for two wickets, while Reece Topley, Liam Livingstone, and Joe Root had a wicket each to their name. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony...
In their pursuit of 285, England were rocked early as Jonny Bairstow was dismissed in the second over. Their mainstay Joe Root departed for a low score as well, and England found themselves struggling at 33-2. Dawid Malan and Harry Brook got together with the aim of steadying the ship, but a loose shot by Malan brought an end to their rescue act. Jos Buttler got out cheaply as did Liam Livingstone and Harry Brook found himself running out of partners. Despite what was happening at the other end, Brook was unperturbed and England were in the game till he was at the crease. However, he got out on 66 and took him with his side's hopes. With two losses from three games, England have a lot to ponder ahead of their next game against South Africa.
Afghanistan have pulled off one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history and mind you, it is only the second win for them in ODI World Cups. Having finished with a daunting total on the board, Afghanistan needed early breakthroughs considering the arrival of dew under the lights. Fazalhaq Farooqi provided them with just that as he trapped Jonny Bairstow right in front with his very first delivery. His new ball partner, Mujeeb Ur Rahman backed it up and breached through the defences of Joe Root to pile the misery on England. In the middle phase, Mohammad Nabi, Naveen-ul-Haq and Rashid Khan brought their experience into play and were rewarded with wickets. Brought back into the attack, Mujeeb Ur Rahman accounted for Harry Brook and sealed the deal for Afghanistan. Towards the end, Rashid Khan went bang, bang and run through the English tail to script history for his side. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the star of the show with three wickets while his spin partner Rashid Khan took three wickets as well.
What's a World Cup without an upset? We have had to wait for the first upset of this World Cup but here it is, Afghanistan have outplayed and stunned the reigning ODI champions, England to produce the biggest result in their history. They say sport has the healing power and we hope that this memorable victory for Afghanistan would be able to lessen the sorrows of those affected by the recent earthquakes in the country. As far as England are concerned, they have suffered their second defeat of the competition and their hopes of proceeding to the next stage now hang by a thread.

OUT! LBW! Rashid Khan gets into the act now as he gets the wicket of Liam Livingstone! England in all sorts of trouble as they have lost half their side now. Tosses it up, quicker through the air, full and on off, Liam Livingstone lunges forward and reaches out in front to turn it on the leg side. Gets beaten in the flight and plays down the wrong line as well. Gets pinged on the front pad and the umpire has no hesitation in raising the finger. Liam Livingstone goes for the review, more in hope though. The UltraEdge shows no spike and it is three reds on Ball Tracking. England lose Livingstone and the review.

Drinks break! Afghanistan have started brilliantly with the ball and by doing so, have England on the back foot at the moment. They cannot afford to be complacent though and must continue to look for wickets in this next passage of play. This is a far from ideal start for England in their pursuit of a challenging total. Harry Brook and Jos Buttler are amidst a rebuilding phase and this partnership will hold the key for England.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman To Joe Root OUT!
OUT! TIMBER!. Mujeeb Ur Rahman gets the big fish! England in a spot of bother as they lose Joe Root now. Offers flight and bowls it slightly fuller, angling in, on off and middle, Joe Root misjudged the length and goes back on the back foot to a full delivery. He pays the price as the ball skids on off the deck and sneaks under the bat before crashing into the stumps. Joe Root indicates that the ball kept low before he starts to make the long walk back. Afghanistan are delighted and so they should be.

A loud shout for LBW but the umpire turns it down. It did not look like a bad shout in real-time and Hashmatullah Shahidi takes the review. Gets this one angle in, at the batter, on a good length, Dawid Malan hangs on the back foot and tries to turn it away. He does not move his feet and the ball straightens enough to catch him high on the back leg. The UltraEdge shows a clear gap between bat and ball but the Ball Tracking shows the ball to be going over the stumps. Afghanistan lose their review.

Fazalhaq Farooqi To Jonny Bairstow OUT!
OUT! LBW! What a start for Afghanistan as Fazalhaq Farooqi strikes with his first delivery! An early blow for England in the run chase. Fazalhaq Farooqi begins from over the wicket and gets the ball to shape into the right-hander, on the leg-stump line. Jonny Bairstow gets on the front foot but does not account for the inward movement and misses the clip. Gets pinged low on the front pad and up goes the finger! Jonny Bairstow goes for the review almost immediately. The UltraEdge shows no bat and on Ball Tracking the impact is umpire's call as is wickets. The on-field decision will stand and Jonny Bairstow will have to walk back.
Fazalhaq Farooqi to bowl the second over for Afghanistan.
