England's winter ended in shambolic fashion with a 45-run defeat to minnows Netherlands in their final T20 World Cup group match in Chittagong.
Already out of the tournament after defeat to South Africa, England restricted the Dutch to 133 for 5 with Stuart Broad taking 3 for 24 to set up a seemingly comfortable win.
But England were blown away for just 88 in 17.4 overs with only Alex Hales, Ravi Bopara and Chris Jordan getting into double figures as Mudassar Bukhari and Logan van Beek took three wickets each.
The result against a Netherlands side who have been stripped of their one-day status by the ICC is the fitting end to a five-month winter programme during which England have produced among the most inept performances in their cricketing history.
One-day coach Ashley Giles now faces questions over his ability to take control of the Test side ahead of the domestic summer while the England and Wales Cricket Board's decision to drop Kevin Pietersen faces further scrutiny.
"It sums up our winter," Broad said. "It was similar to the sort of batting we put in after losing the Ashes. A very disorganised chase.
"The bowling and fielding was okay but we lacked application with the bat, no-one took responsibility. No excuses. We should have won it was a relatively straightforward chase. There were some extremely soft dismissals.
"It's not this loss that's knocked us out but the players have let the fans down. It seemed a complacent batting performance. Hugely disappointing. In the past year we've had trouble chasing down scores and it's a problem we need to eradicate it from our game.
"A new era is coming and that's exciting. It's been an awful winter. I'm not sure whether I'll keep captaining the T20 side. There will be decisions made right at the top over the next few months."
