Limp England falls over the line.

ENGLAND captain Michael Vaughan saw his team labour to a four-wicket win over Bangladesh today and admitted there was plenty of work to do if it's to make the World Cup semi-finals.

Chasing just 144 to win the Super Eight match at the Kensington Oval, England looked desperately out of form and at one stage threatened to be undone by Bangladesh's spin attack, which had already stunned South Africa last week.

Sajid Mahmood, who took 3-27 and Monty Panesar, who took 3-25, saw Bangladesh bundled out for just 143, but England found batting no easier against the spin of Abdur Razzak and Mohammad Rafique, who took two wickets apiece before eventually surrendering the match after 44.5 overs.
