England captain Eoin Morgan says he is not considering an early World Cup exit despite yet another massive defeat, this time at the hands of Sri Lanka.
Morgan’s side were comprehensively beaten in Wellington on Sunday, losing by nine wickets despite posting a total of 309 with the bat.
England face World Cup minnows Bangladesh and Afghanistan in their final two group games and must win both to have any chance of progressing into the Super Eight stage of the tournament.
When asked about a potential early exit, Morgan was defiant.
“It’s not even a thought at the moment,” he is quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald.
“[There’s] two games to win to get us in to the quarter-final.”
Despite a number of players struggling for form, Morgan declined to comment on any team changes for the clash against Bangladesh in Adelaide next Monday.
“At the moment I haven’t really thought about it,” Morgan said.
“We’ll have a couple of days in Adelaide where we’ll do nothing and then wait until the dust settles a bit; review the game with the backroom staff and see how we go forward from here.”
England currently sit sixth in Pool A, with their only win coming against World Cup minnows Scotland.
