Humiliation in the Cricket World Cup

The result against South Africa has to be one of the worst performances by England in one day cricket. To be bowled out for such a paltry score and then for South Africa to win with 30 overs to spare really is a humiliation of the highest order. Even when Scotland met South Africa they managed to achieve a higher score and out success at the World Cup have all been against second tier teams.

England certainly need to re-group, just under two years ago we had the incredible Ashes success and now we struggle to win a match. In terms of one day cricket we've been poor for a number of years and serious questions need to be asked of the current team. With the forthcoming series against the West Indies, England will have to get their act together. Also, we have to face reality that some of our players including Michael Vaughan and Andrew Flintoff are totally out of form and the runs have dried up.

Hopefully we'll see a significant improvement as it couldn't get any worse then the last few months, given the Ashes whitewash and now the World Cup.

We should have faced up to the fact that Vaughan was not up to the job much earlier in this tournament. What a joke.
