We’re not saying they are unpopular, but the internet has been having a right good snigger after England were knocked out of the Cricket World Cup today.
England were beaten by Bangladesh and having already lost to Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka they are out of the competition - facing a dead rubber against Afghanistan on Friday before heading home.
Sympathy was in short supply on Twitter.

You know you’re in trouble when other countries start trolling you, especially if one of those countries is Japan - not exactly a cricketing stronghold.
When can we play @ECB_cricket?— Malaysia Cricket (@MalaysiaCricket) March 9, 2015
Quite a few people wanted to remind everyone that England may be gone, but Ireland are very much still in it.
Does this mean Ireland are better than England at cricket now too???— Shane Lowry (@ShaneLowryGolf) March 9, 2015
If you're really quick England Cricket fans...there's some room left on our bandwagon 😜😜 #BackingGreen 🍀— Emma Wheatley (@EmmaAWheatley) March 9, 2015
And you’ve got to feel a little for Eoin Morgan - England’s Irish captain who chose to declare for England instead of us.
@ECB_cricket I hear Morgan wants to rejoin Ireland so that he can experience some success in world cricket.— sir p c botticelli Esq (@hoddles10) March 9, 2015
