ENG Vs AFG: The ODI World Cup 2023 has seen the dominance of the batters till now.

The batsmen have been on the centre stage of this tournament and the bowlers have struggled to make a men’s mark on the batting-friendly surfaces of India.

That is why only one bowler, Mitchell Santner has picked a five-wicket haul.

But yesterday i.e. 15th October 2023, we came across to the greatest upset in this ODI World Cup 2023.

The defending champions of this year’s ICC mega event of the one-day international format, England has lost to an associate nation team of Afghanistan in the 13th game of this ODI tournament.

England won the toss and opted to bowl first in Delhi. But Afghanistan started the match proceedings quite well and they managed to score their second-highest score in the one-day international format.

The Afghan batsmen scored 284 runs and they were all out in 49.5 overs.

However, the star batting lineup of the defending champions, England couldn’t chase this total down. The bowlers of this Afghanistan side bowled really well to bundle out the batting powerhouse side of England for just 215 runs in 40.3 overs and the Afghans won their first game of this ODI World Cup 2023 by a margin of 69 runs.

There have been many upsets in the history of the ODI World Cup. According to the fans of the Indian Cricket Team, their defeat against Bangladesh in the ODI World Cup of 2007 was the most humiliating and shocking one.

That team was led by the current Indian head coach, Rahul Dravid and the team had legendary players like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni.

But the men in blue side still lost that match by 5 wickets and that Indian team which was coached by the Australian great, Greg Chappell was also eliminated from the first round of that ICC event of the fifty overs format which was played in the nation of the West Indies.

Now again, India will meet Bangladesh on Thursday, 19th October 2023 at Pune.
