WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) After its third loss to a top-tier team at the Cricket World Cup, England now faces the uncomfortable prospect of a sudden-death match against Bangladesh in which the winner will likely progress to the quarterfinals.

England's poor run continued in Wellington on Sunday when it was easily beaten by Sri Lanka, which cruised past its total of 309 with nine wickets to spare, thanks to unbeaten centuries by Kumar Sangakkara (117) and Lahiru Thirimanne (139).

That followed England's opening 111-run loss to Australia and a trouncing by New Zealand, when it managed to score just 123 runs and the Black Caps blasted their way to victory in 12.2 overs.
