Given the way they have played all through it, it was appropriate that the England men’s team should end their winter with a particularly humiliating defeat. They were not merely beaten by the Dutch (bad enough), but the margin of 45 runs is in a T20 context a thrashing.
England had already failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament, but this final surrender was shocking nonetheless.
Hopefully New Zealand and Sri Lanka will provide better cricketing fare later on today.
As usual I have some pictures for you…
