England hit by a Ram raid

England's West Indian misery continues apace; they were hammered again by the Windies, this time by six wickets in a Twenty20 international in Trinidad. Andrew Strauss' men are still looking for their first win this winter.

This defeat might have been the most humiliating of the lot, as they were bowled for only 121 after 19.1 overs, and the home side made the run chase look easy, winning the game with 12 balls left. The Windies had the sizzling batting of Ramnaresh Sarwan to thank for the ease of their victory; he tortured England's bowlers and hit 59 before eventually being bowled by Khan. The result left Strauss stating the obvious.

'When you score 120 you're not going to win too many Twenty20 games,' said the England captain. 'We did a lot of things wrong with the bat if we're honest with ourselves. We lost wickets at regular intervals, the guys that did get in didn't go through and we didn't keep up the momentum. It was a very disappointing performance and we would have needed two or three things to go our way in the field if we were going to win the game.

'There's plenty for us to work on, we're disappointed with the way we played and we need to put it right for the first one-dayer.'
