So that's that! The end of the first double-header day of the World Cup. Both the Trans-Tasman sides have registered comfortable wins over two Asian sides. A really good start thus for both of last World Cup's finalists. The games roll on and Sunday will see the first match for Bangladesh as they take on South Africa, who will be looking for their first win after they lost against England in the opening fixture. That one will be played at the Oval in London. It will begin at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Join us for the same! Till then, we will bid you goodbye. See you for the next match, cheers!
Australia skipper, Aaron Finch says that there are always a bit of nerves before the first game and that they have been training hard for over a month. He mentions that they have had a long build-up and it is good to get off with a win. He feels that wickets in Powerplays are crucial against any side. Tells that it was a pretty good game all around. The Aussie skipper feels that chances were taken and he also reserves special praise for Smith and Zampa for their performances on the field. Says he felt great on his own knock. Mentions that Warner's knock was really crucial for him as he was struggling early in his innings, but he kept going and did not lose the wicket which was the important part. Admits that it is really important to not get carried away and think about the net run rate before getting into a winning position. States that the opposition have world class spinners and losing wickets early would have been a huge problem so they did not think about going too fast.
Afghanistan skipper, Gulbadin Naib mentions that it was always going to be difficult against Australia as they are a champion side and that they can't have mistakes. He feels that they did not have a good start with the bat and that important batsmen fell early. Also states that they lost their way in the middle as well. About the bowling, the skipper feels in England conditions there is always help for the pacers and praises Hamid Hassan especially. He hopes that upcoming games will see some helpful tracks spin and it goes on to become drier as the tournament progresses.
David Warner is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 89! He says it is a great win and a brilliant start for the team and wants to keep the ball rolling. Informs that there were a few nerves getting back to full training, but it all went well once Finch got the runs flowing at the start of their innings. States that it was great to get his feet back moving after such a long absence where he had taken an absolute break from training and the game. Feels that for batters on such bowler-friendly wickets, it is important to hold the nerves and just play out the new balls and the first few overs safely. The Aussie opener mentions that the difference between the side of 2015 and now is experience. Informs that there were plenty of guys who had played over 100 games then and now there are only a few but the energy levels in the camp are really high.
Earlier in the day, Afghanistan managed to cross 200, thanks to a few batting sparks and some excellent spirit. It could have been lesser, had the Aussies bowled a bit more consistently but the Men In Blue will be happy with the fight shown. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
207 seemed to be competitive at the innings break but sadly for Afghanistan, there was no competition with the ball. Mujeeb's opening two overs were taken apart and then some poor fielding really let the bowlers down. Hamid Hassan kept Australia under check but could not quite strike. No one else looked even remotely threatening, including Rashid Khan.
Normally, in a run chase, the opening stand sets the base. Finch and Warner's 96-run stand created the platform and then the 60-run stand between Warner and Khawaja killed all hopes of an Afghan win, if there were any. Finch continued his excellent form, scoring his 5th score of 50 or more in his last 6 games while Warner slowly but surely, got amongst the runs.
Professional display of batting by Australia. It would have been so easy to go hammer and tongs and try and win this in a canter but Australia ensured that there was no hara-kiri. Finch went after the bowlers but Warner ensured that he batted till the end. Khawaja and Smith could not quite get going but there was nothing much required out of them.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman To Glenn Maxwell
FOUR! Up and over! So easy, isn't it? Maxwell arrives and he finishes the game! A flatter one outside off, Glenn does not need a sighter and just smashes the first ball he faces over mid off and to the boundary. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 7 WICKETS AND COMPLETE THIS CHASE WITH MORE THAN 15 OVERS LEFT! The world champions are off to the perfect start in the World Cup.
Glenn Maxwell comes in at number five with 3 runs required!

RUN OUT MISSED! Length delivery on middle, Warner nudges it towards square leg. The batsmen take the single and then run blind for the second. Rashid Khan goes for a direct hit at the bowler's end but misses it. Now, Hazrat Zazai comes running in from mid off but unfortunately for him, the bowler is standing in the way. So he cannot quite be at the stumps and takes it from far. The bowler is not happy, neither is Rashid but that was not Zazai's mistake. Smith was gone by a couple of yards.
Dawlat Zadran returns. 5-0-20-0 so far.

Rashid Khan To David Warner
NOT OUT! It is indeed glove. Warner attempting the reverse sweep missed the ball and got it down to third man. Flighted delivery on off, Warner looks to play the reverse sweep but gets hit on the pads. The bowler appeals but the umpire shakes his head. Shahzad clearly indicates gloves but Rashid insists on a second look and Gulbadin goes for the review. Ultra Edge shows that it clearly came off the glove. Waste of the review.
Loud shout for an LBW! Warner is the man in question. He has not been given out. Shahzad indicates gloves. But Rashid insists on the review and Naib takes it. Looks to be glove and this will be a loss of a review for Afghanistan...

Gulbadin Naib To David Warner
MISFIELD, FOUR! Not the best bit of fielding effort from Zazai. Short delivery on leg, Warner swivels and pulls it through square leg. Hazratullah Zazai runs to his right and gets down to stop it but misses it totally. The ball goes through for a boundary. Shoddy effort. This is one area where Afghanistan have been disappointing today. Fielding. That brings the required number of runs to under 100.

DRINKS BREAK! Australia are well on course to chase this total down and begin their defense on a strong note. Finch continued his great form while Warner has been cautious about his stroke-making. He will probably aim to bat through till the end of the innings.

NOT OUT! Flatter outside off, Warner wanted to cut the ball away but it goes off the bottom edge and towards the keeper. David did not know where the ball was and steps out for a run before realising the ball was close to Shahzad only. The keeper picks up the ball and disturbs the timber. Loud appeal from the keeper and it is taken up for the third umpire to make a decision. The replays though show that Mohammad was just too slow there to remove the stumps. Warner survives, he would have had his heart in his mouth there. Would have also been a terrible way to be dismissed.
Huge confusion! Warner did not know where the ball was and had stepped out. Shahzad has removed the bails but was the batsman in just in time? Lets see what the replays say!
