Stuart Broad joins Paul Collingwood and Peter Roebuck as England captains who have lost to The Netherlands:
There is a great deal of competition for the lowest point in the history of English cricket. They have been defeated by Ireland and Netherlands, bowled out by a chicken farmer in Zimbabwe and whitewashed by India, West Indies and Australia. They were even knocked out of the World Cup they hosted in 1999 before the theme song was released.
But defeat at the hands of Netherlands - the second time they have lost to them in two meetings following the result in the 2009 World T20 at Lord's - in Chittagong ranks among the worst of England's defeats. In a winter stuffed with setbacks and disappointment, England left the most ignominious moment until last. The term double-dutch has rarely seemed so appropriate.
Why is Nasser Hussain unaware of how run outs work? "The elbow's okay, isn't it, Nick?" Surely you still have to hit the ball on the stumps with the ball in your hand.
