Phil Simmons has poured out his outburst on Twitter after team lost their all world cup matches so far.

At the other end of the scale Rashid Khan had a bad day with the ball becoming the first spinner to concede over 100 runs in an ODI.

Eoin Morgan has broken the world record for sixes in a one-day global innings, hitting 17 in the World Cup match with Afghanistan at Old Trafford.

All is not well in Afghanistan team camp that seems to be in disarray on and off the field at the World Cup. The wheels are coming off now and the blame game has started with the Afghanistan chief selector Dawlat Ahmadzai accusing the coaching staff of not preparing well for the mega event.

"Me asking to renew my contract with ACB is absolutely untrue #FakeNews", Simmons said in another tweet last week.

Iran claims it shot American drone, U.S. military doesn't comment
Mysterious attacks also have targeted oil tankers as Iranian-allied Houthi rebels launched bomb-laden drones into Saudi Arabia. President Donald Trump made a decision to withdraw from Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers a year ago.

Some members of the Afghanistan squad were involved in an altercation at a Manchester restaurant on Monday, which resulted in the police being called.

"Never, never have I ever thought I could play a knock like that", Morgan said, adding that part of his motivation was uncertainty over whether he should go in at 164-2 in the 30th over, or let a bigger hitter like Jos Buttler bat above him.

Naib declined to elaborate on the incident after the loss against England and threatened to walk out of the news conference when pressed further about what happened.

"No, I haven't, so you can ask my security officer". I told them.my team needed me. They took care of me and said it will be fine, inshallah (God willing)'. No one was injured and no arrests have been made.

Ali, though, thumped four sixes and a four in the final two overs as the hosts beat their previous best World Cup score of 386-6, which was set against Bangladesh earlier in the tournament - Ali having been recalled by England for a mixture of tactical reasons and illness to seamer Liam Plunkett.
