Starting with the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka...

 Defending champs England got off to a healthy start... as they hammered Afghanistan by 116 runs... to send them packing.

 Luke Wright hit 99 to take the England team to a healthy 196 for 5.

 In reply, Afghanistan were bundled out for just 80.

 There were two wickets each for Jade Dernbach (dernback), Stuart Broad, Samit Patel and Graeme Swann.

 We have the action...
