England defeat 'embarrassing'- Root
Joe Root has admitted that England's 157-run defeat to Sri Lanka in the second ODI was "embarrassing" and said improved performances are required to keep the paying public interested.
There were empty seats on display for Sunday's game at Chester-le-Street, as England were bowled out for 99, while tickets remain on sale, for the three remaining matches in the series.
Root, who made 0 as part of an abject batting display, said England would pick through the debris before Wednesday's game at Old Trafford to ensure that another debacle does not ensue.
