Day 20 at the World Cup: England went on a six-hitting spree against Afghanistan on Tuesday in a memorable display of fearless batting as they brushed aside Afghanistan by 150 runs. Skipper Eoin Morgan led the way with a 71-ball 148 that included a world record 17 sixes.
On the World Cup Daily, Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins are following the Cup all around England and Wales. Their long weekly podcast The Final Word has been going for five years, but now it has changed into a short daily form for cricket’s biggest tournament.
Every day, The Final Word will team up with Firstpost to bring you a new episode from wherever Geoff and Adam are on the road. On trains and buses, in pubs, on the street, in parks, on barges floating down rivers, and anywhere else that they might end up.
They are also watching an awful lot of cricket, and can summarise all the matches that you didn’t have time to see, or can bring you into the discussion about the ones you did watch.
They will nominate their player of the day, who will probably not be the official man of the match, and will pick one moment or person or incident to go into The Final Word Hall of Fame, with an overall winner to come at the end of the tournament.
Tune in to The Final Word World Cup Daily tomorrow for Day 21.
