The captain of the England ODI team, Alastair Cook, has expressed his disappointment over the performance of his team in the first two ODI matches against New Zealand.
The Kiwis have won both the ODIs and have taken an unbeatable lead of 2-0 in the series.
In the 2nd ODI played at The Ageas Bowl on Sunday, England lost by a huge margin of 86 runs.
Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand put up a huge score of 359 on the board. Martin Guptill was the stand out batsman for the Kiwis. He scored his second consecutive hundred in the series and ended up being not out at 189.
Chasing down that total, the England team couldn’t take advantage of the good batting conditions. Apart from Jonathan Trott who scored a hundred, no other batsman managed to play a big inning. A few of them got starts, but, they all threw their wickets away trying to up the ante.
The England team got all out on 273 runs in the 45th over and suffered a big defeat. Trott remained unbeaten on 109.
Talking to the reporters in the post match press conference, Cook said, “It’s obviously disappointing to lose a series at home where our record has been fantastic in the last few years, but, the credit should be given to them. They played far better than us in both these ODIs and they are the deserving winners.”
When asked if England missed its two injured bowlers Steven Finn and Stuart Broad in the first two ODIs, Cook said, “Yes, we missed them. They are our main bowlers and their presence could have made a difference. Hopefully, we will have them back for our first match in the Champions Trophy.”
England’s first match in the upcoming Champions Trophy will be against Australia on 8th of June at Edgbaston.
