Sports Station, New Delhi. October 15, 2023 is a day the England cricket team will never want to remember. Afghanistan pulled off an upset in the ICC World Cup 2023 on Sunday night, defeating the defending champions by 69 runs.

However, despite the crushing defeat, former captain Michael Vaughan still has faith in England. Warne believes that England will make it to the semi-finals. However, Virender Sehwag showed a mirror to Vaughan through a tweet.

In fact, after England’s shameful defeat against Afghanistan, Michael Vaughan tweeted, “England will reach the World Cup semi-finals.” Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said, “Yoon’s tweet was an appropriate reaction.”

Afghanistan performed well and defeated England for the first time in World Cup history. Afghanistan batted first and scored 284 runs. England’s batting order fell apart like a house of cards and the team could score only 215 runs and the entire team was out. Mujeeb and Rashid Khan took three wickets each for Afghanistan.

 

Afghanistan tasted victory after 14 consecutive defeats in the World Cup. Afghanistan last won the 50-over World Cup in 2015 against Scotland. The magic of Afghanistan’s spinners reached its peak against England where they took eight wickets.
