Cricket: England Must Win Title Or Be Forgotten- Trevor Bayliss

England head coach Trevor Bayliss has warned his team they will be forgotten if they fail to win the World Twenty20 trophy. England reached the semi-finals with a superb 10-run victory over Sri Lanka on Saturday and will take on New Zealand for a place in the final in Delhi on Wednesday.

Eoin Morgan's men have already far exceeded their performance at the 50-over World Cup, where they failed to get out of the group but Bayliss warned his team that they have achieved nothing yet. He said “I've already read one or two text messages I got this morning from England...we've got to understand we haven't won anything yet. We've made the semi-final and yes, that's a good achievement. But let's not go over the top. It's just a semi-final. Let's keep everything in perspective. That can be difficult at times when you're reading newspapers, watching television reports and getting text messages from home, but that's a learning process. You have to go through that to see how difficult it can be

Bayliss was in charge of Sri Lanka when they took the trophy two years ago in Bangladesh, but also when they were knocked out by England's eventual winners in 2010 at the semi-final stage.
