Collingwood disappointed with England display

Hamilton, Feb 13 (UNI) A dejected England captain Paul Collingwood has expressed his disappointment at his side's ''very poor'' performance in the second one-day international against New Zealand.

''We're very disappointed, there are 11 blokes in the dressing-room who are devastated,'' Collingwood said.

''We hit 85 from the first 15 overs but when the rain came it really knocked the stuffing out of us. I don't know why, but it was very poor from then.'' Expressing concern at England's poor batting form, he said,''We are not getting totals on the board for the bowlers to defend and we have got to get that right pretty soon.'' Declining to reveal whether there would be any changes in the team for the third match on February 15, he said,''There will certainly be plenty of talking done.'' ''What it comes down to now is what kind of characters we have in that dressing-room.

''To bounce back from a defeat like this we've got to be honest with ourselves and see where we can improve.'' UNI XC AB RKM HT1940
