England miserable World Cup ends with a low-key nine-wicket victory over Afghanistan in Australia. After rain reduced England’s target to 101 from 25 overs, Ian Bell made an unbeaten 52 to complete the chase with 41 balls to spare. Afghanistan had earlier been limited to 111-7 from 36.2 overs when the weather intervened for the third time. England finish fifth in Pool A having beaten only the Afghans and Scotland in their six matches. Winning just twice is England’s joint-worst return from a World Cup, matching the 1996 tournament. On that occasion, they did at least make it to the quarter-finals.
