Updated : 2019-06-19 07:39:32

The England cricket team beat Afghanistan by 150 runs in the 24th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup. Eoin Morgan set the tone for England's record sixathon when he slogged a free hit for six and followed it up by clearing the boundary over long-on off the very next delivery from his opposing captain Gulbadin Naib. The total was England's highest ever at the World Cup, and also a ground record for Old Trafford, breaking India's two-day-old record of 336-5 against Pakistan. The highest World Cup total is 417-6 by Australia against Afghanistan in Perth en route to the title in 2015. Here are the key highlights of the match:
