The England team trained in Wellington on Tuesday (February 17) ahead of their World Cup Pool A match against New Zealand on Friday.

England will be looking to bounce back after losing heavily to Australia in their opening match in Melbourne on Saturday.

After Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to put Australia into bat, the hosts piled on 342-9 at the MCG. England managed to score just 231 in reply, batting under floodlights.

Morgan’s own personal dreadful run of form with the bat continued as he was dismissed for a duck, his fourth in five innings against Australia. The 28-year-old, who replaced Alastair Cook as one-day skipper late last year, has now scored 0, 0, 2, 0, 121, 4, 0, 5 from his last eight one-day international innings.

One player who gave England some cause for optimism was James Taylor who made an unbeaten 98 after the tourists had slumped to 92-6.
