Powell 107(53) - looks clumsy at the crease, hits it a mile. Reminds me of Richard Levi except Powell can play on the offside.

England was lucky to have won yesterday's match by 1 run. Clearly in the 2nd last over a wide was not given.

They have no chance here chasing 225

I agree, England C team has no chance.

It’s a good learning curve for their debutants though.

They should have played their W team, but alas they have a test match going on in Australia.

Anyone noticed how good Afghanistan is in U19 cricket? I'm pretty sure many of those players are over 19.

What! most of them probably 16 :p

The beards start early that side

I did some research and apparently they often don't even know their ages. Births are often not documented there and with all the issues in the country, documentation is not really a top priority for most so apparently they end up having to estimate.
