Jofra Archer to Ikram Ali Khil. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Rashid. The last ball is another nasty short one that hits the batsman on the helmet. A rare maiden then in the final over of the 100. Afghanistan bat out their overs for the first time this tournament. They were never really in with a chance of chasing down that massive total. There were some positive signs from their middle order though who put together some decent partnerships in the middle of the innings. So England move to the top of the table on a day when it rained sixes and records tumbled. Eoin Morgan was the star of the show as the England batsmen take it in turns to score centuries in this tournament. That's all from me here at Old Trafford, join us again tomorow for more World Cup action.

1
Dawlat Zadran to Moeen Ali. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Zadran. Well it's not 400 but it is a score that any team would struggle to chase against England's bowling attack. What a performance from Eoin Morgan, presumably he isn't having any trouble with his back now. Moeen Ali then continued the charge with four more lusty blows. Such was the display of hitting from the left-handers it's easy to forget the role Bairstow and Root played in setting the game up for England. All you can say to Afghanistan now is good luck.
49.5

SIX! Dawlat Zadran to Moeen Ali. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That's the long part of the ground but Moeen has hit it so well it it's gone all the way. One more six will take England to 400.

SIX! Dawlat Zadran to Moeen Ali. Slower ball back of a length, to leg on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Hammered over the legside boundary, I'm losing count of the number of sixes we've seen today.

Start of England Innings. Good morning and welcome to Old Trafford for today's contest between England and Afghanistan. If Afghanistan thought they'd had a tough World Cup campaign so far it's about to get even tougher against the hosts. They might be without Jason Roy but it looks like England captain Eoin Morgan may well be fit to play and it would take something of a miracle to prevent his side from picking up two points from this game. The weather thankfully looks set fair and play should continue uninterrupted to the conclusion of this match. If indeed England do win today a gap would start to open up in the table between the top four places and the best of the rest. It is looking increasingly likely that the four teams to reach the semi-final stage will be Australia, New Zealand, England and India. However, this is the Cricket World Cup and we don't take anything for granted.

Jofra Archer to Ikram Ali Khil. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Rashid. The last ball is another nasty short one that hits the batsman on the helmet. A rare maiden then in the final over of the 100. Afghanistan bat out their overs for the first time this tournament. They were never really in with a chance of chasing down that massive total. There were some positive signs from their middle order though who put together some decent partnerships in the middle of the innings. So England move to the top of the table on a day when it rained sixes and records tumbled. Eoin Morgan was the star of the show as the England batsmen take it in turns to score centuries in this tournament. That's all from me here at Old Trafford, join us again tomorow for more World Cup action.

OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Rahmat Shah. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Bairstow. Well that's one way to get a wicket. A big juicy full toss from Rashid offered Rahmat the chance to go to 50 but instead he picked out Jonny Bairstow on the mid-wicket boundary. Rashid was a bit unlucky in the previous game so I guess what goes around comes around.
