Vaughan tells limp England to improve


voghanEngland captain Michael Vaughan saw his team labour to a four-wicket win over Bangladesh on Wednesday and admitted there was plenty of work to do if they are to make the World Cup semifinals.

Chasing just 144 to win the Super Eights match at the Kensington Oval, England looked desperately out of form and at one stage threatened to be undone by Bangladesh’s spin attack who had already stunned South Africa last week.

“We bowled really well. Saj Mahmood was outstanding with the new ball but Bangladesh are a good team. They beat South Africa and beat India earlier in the tournament. They are a hard team to beat,” said Vaughan.

“We have got areas to improve on but we have had a good look at the ground now going into the South Africa game and have more knowledge of the wicket,” he explained.

“Full credit to their bowlers but the important thing was we got over the line and it sets up a big game against South Africa, which looks like being a quarter-final,” he added.
