By India Today Web Desk: England fast bowler Mark Wood had no qualms in admitting that his team “didn’t deserve” to win against Ireland in the Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup.

England were five runs short of 110, the par score, against Ireland when the rain interrupted the match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Wednesday. The umpires called off the match as England ran out of time, handing Ireland a historic win.

“In T20 cricket, if you don’t play well then you can get punished,” Wood said on Test Match Special. “It doesn’t have to be the No.1 team in the world, it can be any team. We were off, they were on and they deserved to win. Australia is now a massive game but we didn’t deserve to win here.”

Ireland reached 92/1 in 10 overs as their captain Andy Balbirnie (62) anchored the innings with some support from Lorcan Tucker (34) after a delayed start owing to wet outfield. England started to tighten the screws in the 12th over, when Adil Rashid deflected the ball to run out Lorcan Tucker at the non-striker’s end.

It was Liam Livingstone who got the much-needed breakthrough as he removed the Ireland captain. After the dismissal of Balbirnie, Ireland folded on 157. Reflecting on England’s bowling, Wood said his team was not at its best.

“The first 10 overs with the ball we weren’t at our best. I’m pretty angry and disappointed in myself. On that wicket, I think I could have bowled much better. If I look solely at myself, I could have been a lot more consistent and not given away as many four balls,” Wood said.

Josh Little then rocked England, who were considered as favourites to win the match. The 22-year-old left-arm fast bowler removed Jos Buttler and Alex Hales cheaply. Little’s late swing and seam became unplayable for England. Fionn Hand ended Ben Stokes’ struggle, while Barry McCarthy got the crucial wicket of Dawid Malan, reducing England to 86/5.

Just when it seemed Moeen Ali would recover England from an early collapse, the rain gods smiled on Ireland and the match was eventually abandoned. England’s defeat has thrown the death group wide open, with their next match against Australia no less than a do-or-die contest.
