With two rained off matches they can consider themselves unlucky. NZ are the ones you should be laughing at but as Ireland have shown in world cups, anything can happen in one day cricket.
England won't win it, they can't, it's not in their nature. Only India can win it now, expect them to humiliate England in the final. Then you can answer the question, is it better to crash out at the group stage or get slaughtered in a final 😛
Progress to the semi finals was there for them on Saturday ~ beat England, you are through. England actually had less incentive to win the game, as we were already through to semi finals.
