England's Vince blows #CricketWorldCup chance against Afghanistan

Jason Roy

Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan had a awful outing against England on Tuesday as he ended up achieving an unwanted record with 0-110 in nine overs - the most expensive return at a World Cup and second costliest in all ODI cricket - during the ICCWorld Cup encounter in Manchester. Morgan's jaw-dropping knock of 148 from just 71 balls was studded with four fours and 17 sixes.

The incredible feat was achieved by him during the World Cup group stage encounter against Afghanistan, as he also scored the fourth-fastest century in World Cup history.

England finished their innings with the highest score so far by any team in this World Cup - 397/6 from 50 overs. But once he had hit eyes set, there was no looking back.

That awful tournament actually ended with England defeating Afghanistan in a dead rubber and Morgan fearing his captaincy might be over before it had really begun.

The England captain had been an injury doubt having been laid low by a painful back spasm but proved himself more than fit for objective as he hammered his way into the history books with a merciless 148 in only 71 balls.


The team's combined 25 sixes broke England's own record of 24 in an ODI match.

The star spinner was plundered for 110 runs in his 9 overs, becoming the holder of the worst economy rate in an ODI match.

Hampshire batsman Vince, only playing after regular opener Jason Roy was ruled out with a torn hamstring, fell for 26 when he mishooked paceman Dawlat Zadran to Mujeeb Ur Rahman at short fine leg.

It was as if England felt their job was done as they were strangely flat in the field from the moment the usually safe hands of Bairstow dropped an easy slip catch off Chris Woakes to hand Rahmat Shah a reprieve on six.

Earlier the unwanted record belonged to New Zealand's Martin Snedden's 2/105 off 12 overs (60 overs per side) against England in the 1983 World Cup.
