Colombo: Sep 21, 2012

 

England will be wary of a spirited Afghanistan side when the two sides clash in the ICC World Twenty20 Group A match in Colombo on Friday.

 

Afghan batsmen showed patches of brilliance in their stroke-making but sheer inexperience saw them get all out for 136 in 19.3 overs in their first match against India.

 

Mohammad Nabi scored a 17-ball 31 while Karim Sadiq (26) and Mangal (22) also came up with handy contributions. Pacers Shapoor Zadran and Dawlat Zadran also bowled well in tandem, sharing three wickets between them.

 

On the other hand, England, looking to become the only team in the short history of T20 to have successfully defended the crown, will be on a high after posting wins against Australia and Pakistan, in their two warm-up games.

 

The English batsmen would however do well to pull up their socks if they are to fancy their chances of making the Super Eights as against Pakistan, they were shot out for a paltry 111 after opting to bat.

 

Teams:

 

Afghanistan: Mohammad Shahzad, Nawroz Mangal (c), Karim Sadiq (wk), Asghar Stanikzai, Mohammad Nabi, Samiullah Shenwari, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Gulbodin Naib, Izatullah Dawlatzai, Dawlat Zadran, Shapoor Zadran. 

 

England: Craig Kieswetter (wk), Alex Hales, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan, Jonathan Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Samit Patel, Stuart Broad (c), Graeme Swann, Steven Finn, Jade Dernbach.
