NEW DELHI (AP) England captain Eoin Morgan is not underestimating Afghanistan ahead of the World Twenty20 Group 1 game.

Morgan says Tuesday Afghanistan is ''a dangerous side'' and it would be ''stupid'' not to be focusing on a win when getting another victory was vital.

England lost its first Super 10 game against West Indies by six wickets but Joe Root led the way with a 44-ball 83 as England chased a target of 230 against South Africa, the highest successful chase at the World T20.

Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai said they still aimed to beat a top team after losses to Sri Lanka and South Africa.
