Moles wants to finish WC on a high

2015 World Cup

Afghanistan coach Andy Moles said his side aim to finish their World Cup campaign on a high when they take on England in what will be both teams' final match of the tournament on Friday.

England were embarrassingly knocked out of the global showpiece when they lost to Bangladesh in Adelaide on Monday, a result which saw the Tigers advance to the knock-out stages ahead of England.

Moles says he has taken note of the defeat England suffered and his side will be looking to take advantage of any vulnerabilities the opposition players might have and who maybe just want to get home as soon as possible.

The Afghan coach said: "We've got the tapes. We know the areas. The Bangladeshis did what we've tried to do which is bowl in channels and build up pressure, field well and take your half chances.

"With the bat, you need someone to bat through. It's not a state secret."

Afghanistan have the same record as England at the tournament. Both teams have lost to Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh while both enjoyed success against Scotland.
