England find themselves neck-deep in trouble in the semi-final of the U-19 World Cup versus Afghanistan. They have lost half their side for just 106 runs, with left-arm spinner Noor Ahmed picking two wickets and Naveed Zadran, Nangeyalia Kharote and Izharulhaq Naveed snaring one apiece. England opener George Thomas' fifty has been the only saving grace thus far in what has otherwise been a miserable batting display, one that could potentially thrust the boys from Afghanistan into the summit clash.
