Wellington: Under-fire England captain Eoin Morgan said his side were “disappointed” rather than “embarrassed” by New Zealand during an eight-wicket World Cup thumping here yesterday.

New Zealand cemented their status as one of the favourites for a maiden World Cup title as they made short shrift of a hapless England.

Asked whether yesterday’s loss was embarrassing or shocking, a surprisingly calm Morgan replied: “Disappointing more than anything. The way New Zealand bowled, they built some pressure and we couldn’t cope with it.”
