Michael Vaughan was distinctly unimpressed by England’s performances at the World Cup, as he took a look back at England’s season as a whole.
Whilst England are the current top-ranked Test team in the World, their One-Day and Twenty20 rankings have spectacularly fallen from grace. In the One-Day World Cup they fell out of the competition before it had even got properly started!
“I never expected England to win the World Cup, because playing in the subcontinent is so tough and England have been inconsistent in one-day cricket for 20 years. But losing to Ireland and Bangladesh must have sent shockwaves through the management” said Vaughan.
“They got knocked out in the quarter-finals and that is probably about par for where England are in one-day cricket. They need to become smarter and cleverer in terms of the way they bowl and the way they bat.”
