How come this? This is a question that many fans of England will now ask that their team's World Cup hopes are in balance.
England won the home cup to end the famine of the World Cup and on Sunday, they faced the possibility of going out in the first round of the match against Unmain India in Adbeston.
Despite having entered the World Cup as one of the top-ranked teams in One-Day Internationals, against England, Sri Lanka and last champions Australia, they lost three pool matches, including the last two.
Virat Kohli's second defeat in the round-robin phase of the 10-team versus New Zealand will be round-round before his final match.
To make matters worse in front of the home, England's opener Jonny Bairstow has been publicly involved with former captain Michael Vaughan, who labeled his fellow Yorkshire cricketer that people "negative" and "merciful" in the World Cup.
As the exit of the first round of the 2015 World Cup, the aggressive top-order batting of England's White-ball regeneration was formed on batting, which made them comprehensively average.
But they have not been able to adjust their game on the more bowler-friendly surface in this World Cup, where there is a nominal amount of losing an early wicket and a much older style approach and then a successful side policy like Australia.
He is now ready to face India's spinners on the Adbbaston Pitch, which usually gives more returns than other World Cup venues.
In the absence of Jason Roy's hamstring injury, England have lost two of the most, where batsmen James Vince struggled to fill the blow hit by Surrey opener.
Vince is only in the team because England had canceled regular drugmaker Alex Hales for another positive test for the use of recreational drugs – on the basis of maintaining the team "culture" it was decided that he could apologize.
"We know that we can perform better as a group, and Jason is a fantastic player to become available." England's Jose Butler said at Edbbaston on Friday that he would be a boost to play.
England's scarcity was raised by Ben Stokes, while Australia failed to stop the loss of 64 by Australia in the Lord's at Lords.
"We only need situations and then adjusted in situations, but we do not have to take a backward step for a minute," he said.
Former England captain Mike Atterton, writing in The Times, said, "It is fundamental for its approach that without sacrificing the purpose, it needs to be adapted and the need for intelligence – a difficult balance."
Butler said the side was able to control the tension of the tournament, and said "pressure is a privilege."
Adding to England's problems is a fear of injury on fast bowler Jaffa Archer (side) and leg-spinner Adil Rashid (shoulder), while Sunday's match looks like a distant game, because Indian fans can form most of the crowd of Edgaston.
In contrast, the two-time champion India can win in the semi-finals, although he will win, though he is worried that he is dependent on Virat Kohli for the runner.
Former India opener Krishnamachari Srikant said that at the top of the order, Rohit Sharma has not dismissed the last few times and that means that Rahul needs to do more.
"Everyone knows that he is capable of doing that, he has done it before and needs to improve his studies."
So England will also come
