One of the major upsets of this World Cup occurred yesterday at Adelaide when England were crushed by Bangladesh and thus with that defeat, England are knocked out of the World Cup. The entire line up is to blame for their ordinary performance in this edition of the World Cup. English bowlers did not manage to create the minimum pressure to the opposition batsmen in each of their matches played so far.
The English skipper, Eoin Morgan said that the exit from the group stages of the World Cup is “unbelievably disappointing”. England had to score 275 runs yesterday against Bangladesh to keep their chances of qualifying for the quarter finals alive. England needed a win but even after getting a good start to the chase yesterday, their middle order crumbled and eventually England lost the match by a margin of 15 runs.
Morgan said that their team bowled reasonably well but it was a disappointing performance from the batting side. He also said that he is gutted at the present moment.
The skipper also said of the fact that he tried addressing the problems but was unable to rectify them and as a result of which England faced consecutive defeats to get themselves knocked out of the tournament.
He also mentioned that it is the performance that counts finally. Some of the players did perform well but a performance as a unit lacked. He also said that the team management tried to address the problems but they failed in doing so. He said that the team expected something better at the World Cup and thus obviously it is sheer disappointing got them at the moment.
He also said that there is no idea as to what will happen from here on. He said that there will be an inquest of where they went wrong in the World Cup and they would like to proceed thinking of rectifying things seriously for better performances in future.
