England can take plenty of positives despite losing to West Indies in the World Twenty20 final, according to Michael Atherton. Joe Mullen Jersey . Eoin Morgans men were beaten by four wickets after Carlos Brathwaite smashed four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to win the game with two balls to spare, having needed 19 off the final over.However, Atherton insisted reaching the final, and coming so close to bringing home the trophy, is a fine achievement and shows the progress made since last years disastrous World Cup campaign. 12 months ago they were bundled out of the 2015 World Cup at the group stages, a long way behind in terms of strategy and selection from other countries, playing a different type of cricket really, he said.I think the difficulty for many of us watching in 2015 was that we felt the ingredients were there in county cricket, plenty of exciting and dynamic young players who werent being given a chance.I think you can handle a defeat like that when you can see a side is playing the right type of cricket, youre going to win more games than you lose, or win as many as you lose, if you play like that. Jos Buttler has excelled for England in white-ball cricket Indeed, Atherton is confident that England can continue to progress with a talented group of players who have yet to reach their peak.Theyre on the right track, he added. Theyre right when they say this side is still two or three years away from full maturity when you look at the age profile of the team and the number of games played.Theyll always feel that theyre a player or two away from being right but theres a lot of growth left in this team and the signs are definitely good.The Champions Trophy in 2017 is in England, the World Cup 2019 is in England so there they have home advantage to boot as well, so promising signs.As for the match itself, the Sky Sports pundit and former England captain felt it was a fitting end to an entertaining tournament. Carlos Brathwaite celebrates smashing West Indies to victory An incredible end to an incredible tournament, said Atherton.There were a lot of things we didnt see coming there - Joe Root bowling the second over and getting England into the game, then almost the game in the bag.A couple of bad balls where Stokes has missed his yorker length but incredible brute power and strength from Brathwaite and there is the modern game.

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles used their most potent weapon -- the long ball -- to complete a satisfying sweep of the New York Yankees. Chris Davis set a franchise record by hitting his 31st home run before the All-Star break, and Manny Machado and Nate McLouth also connected in a 4-2 victory Sunday night. The Orioles increased their major-league leading home run total to 115 with three in the opening three innings against Hiroki Kuroda (7-6). Davis, meanwhile, has six more homers than anyone else in the big leagues after hitting three in the last two games. His second-inning drive broke Brady Andersons franchise record for home runs before the All-Star Game. Anderson had 30 in 1996 en route to hitting 50 for the season, a team record that still stands. The Orioles tagged seven homers in their first three-game sweep of the Yankees since 2005. New York may have eliminated Baltimore from the playoffs last October, but at this point, the Orioles appear to have the upper hand on their injury-riddled rivals. "I think its always a statement whenever you sweep anybody," Davis said. "I think its been big for us. I think its our first one this year. Weve always put emphasis on winning series and making sure we at least win the majority of the games, but when you can get a sweep, especially against a team in the division, its huge." Chris Tillman (10-2) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings to win his sixth straight start and reach a career high for wins in a season. The right-hander is 7-0 in eight starts since May 19. Jim Johnson worked the ninth to earn his 28th save. Baltimore is 6-3 against New York this season, 5-1 at home. Robinson Cano homered for the Yankees, who have lost five straight -- matching their longest skid of the year -- and 13 of 18. New York dropped into fourth place in the AL East, 6 1/2 games behind division leader Boston. "There are a lot of things that go on in life that are struggles that you go through, and you have to figure out how to get through them," manager Joe Girardi said. "This is like life. Everything is not going to be easy. You find ways to get through it. Im not going to get frustrated. I know the effort these guys are putting in. Im going to stick uup for them. Sidney Crosby Jersey. " Kuroda went six-plus innings. The three homers he allowed were a season high, after allowing only two homers in his previous four starts. "He didnt give up a lot of hits but the hits he did they were loud and they were home runs," Girardi said. The Orioles activated Brian Roberts from the disabled list, where he had languished since April 5 with a right hamstring injury. Batting ninth as Baltimores designated hitter, Roberts went 1 for 2 with a sacrifice fly in his fourth game of the season. "If you are going to be out there you want to contribute," he said. "You dont want to be the weak link in the chain and there are some pretty strong links in this chain." Machado got Baltimore a first-inning run with his first homer since May 5. The Yankees tied it in the second when Brett Gardner drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs, but Tillman avoided further damage by retiring Ichiro Suzuki on a popup. Davis opened the bottom half with an opposite-field drive to left field, his second career homer against Kuroda in 15 at-bats. A solo shot by McLouth made it 3-1 in the third, his fourth hit in 24 career at-bats against Kuroda. Robinson hit his team-leading 17th homer in the sixth, and Roberts made it 4-2 in the seventh with a run-scoring fly ball. Not long after that, Orioles fans in the crowd of 40,878 celebrated another win over the hated Yankees. "The atmosphere tonight (shows) our city has fully embraced this team again," Roberts said. "Its great to be a part of it." NOTES: Girardi failed in his fifth try to earn managerial victory No. 600. ... Machado went 3 for 4, including his major-league leading 38th double, and now leads the majors with 34 multihit games. ... The Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the mound Monday night in Minnesota. The left-hander is 10-0 in his last 12 starts against the Twins. ... Baltimore has Monday off before opening a three-game series against the White Sox. ... Suzuki is 1 for 13 lifetime (.077) against Tillman, his lowest batting average against any pitcher (10 AB minimum). ... Baltimore has won five straight at home against New York for the first time since 1983. ... It was Johnsons 100th career save. ' ' '
