Eoin Morgan bemoans "stuttering" England

Eoin Morgan admits that England 'stuttered' during their T20 defeat to the West Indies on Tuesday.

Eoin Morgan has admitted that England 'stuttered' at the crease during their Twenty20 defeat to West Indies on Tuesday.

England were beaten by seven wickets in Bangladesh as their preparations for the World Twenty20 suffered a setback.

Morgan and his teammates made 131 with no wickets remaining before the West Indies reached their target with just under four overs left.

"We never put ourselves in a position to take their bowling on," he told BBC Sport. "We found it a bit of a stuttering innings today.

"We were a bit short of par and given the start the West Indies got we were staring down the barrel a little bit. It was just tough to get going."

England get their World Twenty20 campaign underway on Saturday against New Zealand in Chittagong.
