England's ICC Under-19 World Cup campaign is over after being knocked out by West Indies at the quarter-final stage.
The English youngsters headed into the clash high on confidence having topped Group A following Thursday's triumph over India, but were below their best as they slipped to an 18-run defeat in New Zealand.
In a match reduced to 36 overs due to rain, West Indies batted first and made a total of 166 all out thanks largely to a third-wicket partnership of 103 between Kraigg Brathwaite and Andre Cleary while David Payne was the pick of the England bowlers with figures of four for 19.
England were poor with the bat - Durham's Ben Stokes top-scoring with 24 - and were dismissed for just 148 as impressive West Indies paceman Jason Holder took five wickets for 19 runs.
