Strauss eyes Cup win despite defeat

CRICKET: England captain Andrew Strauss retains hope his team can still win the World Cup -- despite their second shock defeat.

Bangladesh won by two wickets last night to leave England clinging to the hope they can qualify.

But Strauss said: "(We) still haven't had a game when our batting and bowling fires at the same time -- and we need to do that quickly. We're going to have to do it against the West Indies."
