England out of World Cup after Bangladesh defeat

England suffered another embarrassing loss against Bangladesh, as they were eliminated from the World Cup.

The defeat means they cannot qualify for the latter stages, having only beaten Scotland in the group stages thus far.

England will have been disappointed with their efforts in the fielding, having reduced Bangladesh to 8-2 and 99-54, but were unable to capitalise on the situation.

Mahmudullah set the platform for Bangladesh, scoring 103 before being run out.

He was ably assisted by Mushfiqur Rahim, who struck 89, as the Bangladeshis made it to 275-7 from their 50 overs.

Peter Moores' men started well, but the needless run out of Moeen Ali to leave England 43-1 was a sign of things to come.

Ian Bell came out of the innings with some credit, accumulating 63 before edging behind when attempting to cut.

Captain Eoin Morgan once again failed with the bat, departing for a third-ball duck thanks to a failed pull.

All of the England batting line-up looked nervous at the crease and were rarely willing to take on the opposition bowling, which caused a chronic slowing in the run-rate.

Jos Buttler's hard hitting alongside Chris Woakes gave England hope in the closing stages. The Lancashire man hit 65, but was caught behind off the bowling of Taskin.

Chris Jordan was cruelly run out for a duck, leaving Woakes with too much to do in the final few overs.
