England's Cricket World Cup misery continues with a less-than-appealing clash against Australia next on the agenda for Jos Buttler's beleaguered stars.


The reigning world champions have failed to record a score over 170 in their last three outings, against South Africa, Sri Lanka and India.

Buttler's men were considered strong candidates to go all the way in India, but have come up dramatically short and can no longer qualify for the knockout stages.

India, playing in home conditions, were among the favourites at the start of the tournament and have started extremely well, winning all of their matches so far with little indication of slowing down.

England fans will be forced to suck up the last dregs of a miserable campaign over the coming weeks, if they can stomach it, as the battle to avoid the dreaded wooden spoon is frighteningly still very much alive.
