BBC Sport - Cricket World Cup: England given absolute thrashing - Agnew
Agnew on England's 'absolute thrashing'
- From the section Cricket
BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew describes England's humiliating defeat by New Zealand at the Cricket World Cup was "one of the most one-sided international matches" he has ever seen.
Tim Southee's 7-33 helped skittle England for just 123, with the last seven wickets falling for just 19 runs. Black Caps opener Brendon McCullum then smashed an 18-ball half-century, the fastest in World Cup history, to propel New Zealand to their target in just 12.2 overs.
Agnew says England will need to change their team selection for their must-win match against Scotland, and reckons some of the players looked "shell-shocked" by events in Wellington.
