That's brings us to the end of the match. Tired fingers really, courtesy of a man called Eoin Morgan, who hit 17 sixes himself and there were plenty more hit after that. Credit to Afghanistan for showing the fight and playing out 50 overs. 

We meet you tomorrow again with New Zealand taking on South Africa at Edgbaston. Remember what happened when the two sides met last in a World Cup? Do you remember what happened when South Africa last played in a World Cup encounter at Edgbaston? Well, think hard. On that note, we say you good bye and good night. Don't forget to come tomorrow again at 3 pm IST. 

23:03 (IST)

Morgan, England captain: Next two or three games are crucial for us. We don't want to slack off. Intensity can still be there. We spilled some catches and it can happen. You cannot fault the guys. 

23:02 (IST)

Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib: Obviously how they played after 30 overs was very special. Credit goes to Morgan. It was one of the best innings I have ever seen. The pitch was different so we chose Mujeeb and he did really well. Unfortunately, Rashid didn't deliver today. We did a lot of good things in the field but we dropped one chance of Morgan. We work hard in every department but we still have a lot of work to do. It was a big target. The message to the boys was to play their natural game and bat for 50 overs.

22:55 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, Man of the Match for 71-ball 148

Morgan: Fantastic day for us. The wicket was very good. Afghanistan bowled well with both bat and ball at the start. Good day all around. Did not think I could produce an innings like that. It makes it more special when I compete with youngsters in the side. It was a special day. It started off as a tough game. With their spinners, it is a completely different challenge.

Pitch invaders ahoy... Afghan fans happy with their team playing out 50 overs. Small victories for their cricket team, you wonder. Even so, England have done what they set out to do. Full points, healthier run-rate and sending out a message that they mean business, even without Jason Roy. Afghanistan play India next - that isn't going to be easy either.

After 50 overs,Afghanistan 247/8 ( Ikram Ali Khil (W) 3 , Dawlat Zadran 0)

ENGLAND WIN BY 150 RUNS. They go to top of the points table.

Afghanistan batted all the overs, which is a moral victory for them. It was the day of batters as Morgan, Root, Bairstow had fun in the middle. Then Shahidi and Asghar gave a little to cheer to the Afghan fans in the middle. It was never a contest from the start, to be honest.

OUT! And Bairstow catches another one. He was waiting for it. Rashid heaved it blindly, top edge went to Bairstow at deep cover and he took it safely, turned to the crowd behind as they cheered for him. A smile on his face. He has dropped a couple of catches and taken a couple now. Rashid Khan c Bairstow b Jofra Archer 8(13)

After 49 overs,Afghanistan 246/7 ( Rashid Khan 8 , Ikram Ali Khil (W) 3)

Mark Wood was very good today. Finishes with figures of 2/40. A round of applause for him as he takes his cap from umpire and walks to his fielding position. Last over to go.

FOUR! Rashid clears the front leg, smashes it to mid-off where a misfield means he will get four straight down the ground.

Struck by a series of injury setbacks, England will look to get the combination right when they take on the low-ranked but spirited Afghanistan in their bid get closer to a semi-final berth, in Manchester on Tuesday.

The hosts are struggling with fitness issues, the latest being captain Eoin Morgan having to leave the field with a back spasm during the game against the West Indies.

Opening batsman Jason Roy was also forced off the field during the same match due to a tight hamstring.

Skipper Morgan insisted there is no need to hit the panic button just yet.

"It is sore. I have had back spasms before and it normally takes a few days to settle down. It is unclear, we will know more in the next 24 hours. You normally get a good indication the following day," Morgan said after the victory against West Indies.

"Jason had a tight hamstring and will go for a scan. I think when any two players go down it is a bit of a worry but it is not panic stations yet."

In case Morgan isn't fully fit, vice-captain Jos Buttler is likely to lead the team which boasts of a strong bench strength that includes the likes of Tom Curran and Moeen Ali.

After suffering a shock loss to Pakistan, England have got their act together, excelling in all three departments and the hosts will want to continue riding on the winning momentum.

On the other hand, Afghanistan will be eager to post their first win in the ongoing 50-over showpiece.

Playing in their second World Cup, bottom-placed Afghanistan lost all four of their matches till now to South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand respectively.
