Needing a win to stay alive in the contest, England began well with both bat and ball but lost the game by a mere 15-run margin. "Pretty poor to be knocked out this early from a World Cup.
Unbelievably disappointing. We bowled reasonably well, but we couldn't quite match it up with the bat. I can't pick where it went wrong. I am gutted at the moment," said Morgan.
Chasing a formidable total of 275 for seven, England were bowled out in the penultimate over of the match as Bangladesh's Rubel Hossain (4-53) bowled James Anderson with a yorker.
What went wrong?
The skipper said his team tried addressing the problems but could not rectify them. He added he don't know what is in store for the future but they will definitely look back at the performances and ponder on what went wrong.
"It ultimately comes down to the performance, and some of them did, but not all of us as a unit. We have tried to address the problem, but obviously it hasn't worked. Our expectations were higher than the way we performed, so it is obviously disappointing," he said.
"No idea what will happen from here. Again, there will be an inquest over the next few weeks to see what went wrong, and then we will go from there," he added.
