Luke Wright hit 99 not out as England began their World Twenty20 defence with a crushing 116-run win over Afghanistan to book a place in the Super Eights.

England were 0 for 1 after one over and 15 for 1 after four, but Wright, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan transformed the innings with a barrage of boundaries.

Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow added late muscle to drive England to 196 for 5.

Afghanistan lost two wickets in the first seven balls and crumbled to 80 all out to go out of the tournament.
