Will they maintain their momentum against a struggling Afghanistan side?

Live stream England vs Afghanistan – where and when
Play begins at 10.30am BST. So that’s 2pm Afghanistan Standard Time, and 7.30pm AEST.
While England will go into the match with confidence, they do have a number of injuries ahead of the match. Opening batsman Jason Roy has been ruled out for the next two matches with a hamstring tear while skipper Eoin Morgan is a doubt after suffering back spasms during Friday’s win over the West Indies.
Another potential boost for Afghanistan is that the Old Trafford pitch may offer some help to Afghanistan’s three potent spinners Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi.
It could all add up to much closer game than recent form suggest and it’s a match you’ll be able to watch with ease from anywhere in the world if you follow our England vs Afghanistan live stream guide below.
