Mumbai: England have won the toss and Morgan has chosen will bat first. However heavy hitter Jason Roy, who currently holds the record for the most runs scored in a single game at this tournament, will miss out following a hamstring injury.

James Vince will replace Jason Roy. Moeen Ali also makes it back to the playing XI, replacing Liam Plunkett.

 

Gulbadin Naib and Afghanistan will go into their fifth match having not won a single game so far and standing last on the points table. They will look to beat England, who are the hosts as well as one of the tournament favourites, who stand fourth on the table.
