    Bangladesh have knocked England out of the Cricket World Cup after completing an emphatic 15-run victory in Adelaide, Australia.

    English Captain Eoin Morgan said on Monday it was "incredibly disappointing" to have been knocked out the tournament at such an early stage after England were all out for 260.

    Earlier in the day, Bangladesh had posted a competitive 275 for 7.

    Reacting to the defeat, Morgan said he "was gutted".
