Afghanistan’s innings never took off as they lost wickets at regular intervals. The tormentor-in-chief was Curran, who breathed fire at the Perth Stadium. The southpaw scalped Ibrahim Zadran, Usman Ghani, Azmatullah, Rashid Khan and Fazalhaq Farooqi.
Zadran and Ghani’s wickets were significant as they top scored for the Afghans with 32 and 30 respectively. Thanks to a brilliant bowling effort from Curran, Afghanistan were bowled out for just 112 in 19.4 overs. Ben Stokes and Mark Wood took two wickets each.
