Australia cruised to a convincing 201-run victory over Afghanistan in their ICC World Cup 2023 match on Sunday, extending their unbeaten run to six matches. The Aussies were in complete control of the match from start to finish, and they scored six unanswered half-centuries to secure a comfortable victory.

Australia won the toss and elected to bat, and they got off to a solid start. David Warner and Aaron Finch put on a 100-run partnership for the opening wicket, before Warner was dismissed for 56. Finch continued to bat aggressively, and he reached his century in the 35th over.

Finch was eventually dismissed for 113, but Australia continued to score at a brisk pace. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne both scored half-centuries, and Australia reached their 500-run target in the 48th over.

Afghanistan struggled to contain Australia's batting attack, and they were unable to create any significant partnerships. The Afghan bowlers were also guilty of bowling too many loose deliveries, which were punished by the Australian batsmen.

Afghanistan's only hope of restricting Australia was to bowl them out cheaply, but they were unable to do so. Australia's tailenders batted with great determination, and they helped their team reach a score of 543-7.

In reply, Afghanistan got off to a poor start, and they were reduced to 47-4 in the 15th over. Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi tried to rebuild the innings, but they were both dismissed in the 30th over.

Afghanistan never recovered from their early collapse, and they were bowled out for 342 in the 48th over. David Warner was named the Player of the Match for his outstanding batting performance.

The victory was a comprehensive performance from Australia, who were simply too good for Afghanistan on the day. The Aussies controlled the game from start to finish, and they created numerous chances. They were also clinical in front of goal, scoring six half-centuries and reaching their 500-run target with ease.

Afghanistan had a few chances of their own, but they were unable to create any clear-cut opportunities. The Afghan batting lineup was exposed by Australia's bowling attack, and they were unable to deal with the Aussies' pace and accuracy.

The defeat was a major disappointment for Afghanistan, who had been hoping to get their World Cup campaign back on track after a disappointing start. The Afghans will need to improve their performance if they want to challenge for a place in the Super 12 stage.

Australia, on the other hand, will be pleased with their performance. The Aussies are now unbeaten in six matches, and they are starting to look like serious contenders for the World Cup title.

The match highlights the gulf in class between Australia and Afghanistan. Australia were simply too good for Afghanistan on the day, and they deserved their victory. The match also showcased the importance of batting depth and bowling accuracy.

It was a dominant victory for Australia, and they will be confident of continuing their winning run in the coming weeks.
