NEW DELHI: Defending champions England’s ODI World Cup campaign got off to a disastrous start losing two games out of three. And Afghanistan piled on more misery by handing them a shocking 69-run defeat at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Sunday.
But England’s tumultuous start does not seem to deter former skipper Michael Vaughan‘s hopes of seeing his team into the last four of the tournament.

World Cup 2023: Afghanistan beat England by 69 runs

“England in the World Cup semis,” Vaughan posted on his X handle after England’s embarrassing defeat.

Former India opener Virender Sehwag, who trolled Vaughan in the past, has once again taken a dig at the Englishman and reminded him about how England fared in the World Cups.
“Not in 1996 , 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2023. Just one in 8 attempts,” Sehwag replied to Vaughan and pointed out the fact that England only made it to the last four in eight attempts.
Another former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer, who is always at his wittiest best on social media, tickled his funny bone by replying to him with a meme.

England crumbled to 215 all out in chase of 285 with Harry Brook the only batter to adapt to the conditions with a fighting 66 as Afghanistan spinners Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan took three wickets each.
