Tiredness not an excuse for England
England have not been good enough, discipilined enough and clinical enough in their World Cup campaign, writes Dominic Cork in the Independent.
I don't think you can blame tiredness after a long winter away for England's shortcomings. We are talking about professional cricketers, playing at the highest level, but the end product has been very disappointing because they are a much better side than has been apparent up to now.
The million dollar question is why England, who were on such a high after their Ashes triumph, have been unable to rise to the occasion on the sub-continent.
