England’s Cricket World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan has tweeted a picture of himself with a family who invited him to join their game of cricket.
Morgan tweeted: “On the walk home from dinner this evening I was asked to play a game of cricket with this lovely Afghan family... #ThePowerofsport.”
England won the World Cup for the first time with victory over New Zealand in a dramatic final which saw the two sides finish level on the same score, meaning the game went to a super over, which England won.
Afghanistan were making their second appearance in the Cricket World Cup this year and were captained by Rashid Khan. The 20-year-old was quick to retweet and reply to Morgan’s tweet, calling him a “legend”.
