Anger to fuel England against Afghans in Cricket World Cup: Jordan

England's Chris Jordan is run-out during the Cricket World Cup match against Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval on March 9, 2015England all-rounder Chris Jordan said the anger the team felt at their early World Cup exit would fuel the side in their final pool match against Afghanistan in Sydney on Friday. Monday’s 15-run loss to Bangladesh in Adelaide meant England were no longer able to qualify for the quarter-finals. It also meant that, for the first time in the tournament’s 40-year history, England had failed to beat a single Test nation with their lone win of the tournament so far coming against Scotland. Now Afghanistan, like the Scots a non-Test nation, await for a match where the best England can hope for is to avoid further embarrassment.
