England’s loss to WI under D-L method

London: England skipper Paul Collingwood was furious after his team suffered defeat due to the Duckworth-Lewis method despite scoring a superb 191-5 in their rain-hit World Twenty20 clash against the West Indies.

The West Indies easily reached the revised target of 60 under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

“The boys played a near-perfect game and lost. I"m trying to take the emotion out of this, but 95 per cent of the times you score 191 you"re going to win," said Collingwood.

“But Duckworth-Lewis had other ideas and brought the equation the other way," Collingwood said.

Eoin Morgan with 55 and Craig Kieswetter with 26 off 14 balls performed for England.

But defeat at the hands of the West Indies means they must now beat Ireland today to make sure of qualifying.

“We know what we"ve got to do and it"ll be a pressure game," said Collingwood.
