England captain Eoin Morgan blames blunders for losing to Pakistan after a ball-turning line as Joe Root says: & # 39; The most important thing for us as a group is not to panic & # 39;
- England lost to Pakistan with 14 runs after scoring poorly in the first innings
- & # 39; Fielding-wise, it was a bad day & # 39 ;, the British captain Eoin Morgan admitted
- Joe Root said: & # 39; The most important thing for us as a group is not to panic & # 39;
- Root and Jos Buttler were frustrated by the ball treatment of Pakistan
- Both sides were addressed by referees about throwing the ball at the bounce
The England captain, Eoin Morgan, criticized the attitude of his field workers after his party lost his second World Cup match by 14 runs last Monday – and then said his side was & # 39; intrigued & # 39; by the state of the ball at the end of a scoring highscoring.
Joe Root and Jos Buttler scored hundreds of in vain at Trent Bridge when England fell short of their 349 target, but both sides talked about throwing the ball on the bounce, an exercise designed to move one way in search of reverse swing.
Both Root and Buttler grew visibly practiced at the end of the English innings, and Morgan explained: “When the ball is hit against the LED billboards, he often breaks. Jos was just intrigued to see if one side was rougher than the other, and if it was natural or unnatural. & # 39;

Asked what the fuss was about, Root replied: & # 39; I am not going to participate or I will only get into trouble. & # 39;
England ceased to accuse Pakistan directly of tampering with the ball – which had overtaken an age-old line – but their frustration was evident on a day when the generally high standards of the host country abandoned them. Mohammad Hafeez was dropped off at 14 by Jason Roy before he started to collect 84, and there were mishaps and overthrows.
& # 39; Fielding-wise, it was a bad day & # 39 ;, Morgan said. & # 39; We have gone from one of our best performances in the field on the Oval to … not extremely bad, but it probably costs us 15 to 20 runs, which is a lot in a one-day game.
& # 39; We have already done the work. It hasn't happened to us much. There were mistakes that we don't normally make. It is disappointing. Fielding is an attitude thing. We must go back to that fearless nature of taking half a chance, instead of turning off a normal chance. & # 39;

Meanwhile, Root invited England to stick to their game plan prior to Saturday's game against Bangladesh in Cardiff.
& # 39; I was bitterly disappointed to get out when I did & # 39 ;, he said after he fell for the 107 and still needed 101. & # 39; We might have left ourselves a little too much at the back, but the most important thing for us as a group is not to panic.
& # 39; We know what works for us as a formula, but other parties can play well and we have to ensure that we learn and fight back quickly in Cardiff. & # 39;
