Having lost several players to niggles before and during the first warm-up match, England would be hoping for their players to regain fitness ahead of the second and last practice match. Going into the league stage, injuries would be the last thing which the hosts would want.

England and Afghanistan have played a total of one ODI till date. In what was the 38th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, England had defeated Afghanistan by 9 wickets (D/L Method) at Sydney.
After England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and put Afghanistan in to bat, they scored 111/7 in 36.2 before persistent rain ended their innings. A disciplined bowling effort saw Man of the Match Chris Jordan and all-rounder Ravi Bopara pick a couple of wickets each. The trio of Stuart Broad, James Anderson and James Tredwell also dismissed a batsman each.
Chasing 101 runs in 25 overs, England thrived due to Alex Hales (37) and Ian Bell’s (52*) 83-run opening partnership. England eventually sealed the chase in the 19th over.
