ICC T20: In-form Wright hits unbeaten 99 for England21-Sep-2012
Sussex's Luke Wright hit an unbeaten 99 from only 55 balls as England romped home to victory in their ICC World Twenty20 clash with Afghanistan in Colombo.
Wright smashed 8 fours and 6 sixes in the knock which propelled defending champions England to 196 for 5 from their 20 overs against the minnows, with the innings becoming England's highest individual International T20 score on virtue of him being not out, as Alex Hales made 99 at Trent Bridge against the West Indies earlier this summer.
The Afghans were bowled out for only 80 in reply to give England a huge winning margin of 116 runs.
