Shane Warne must have used the word a dozen times on Saturday night as he ripped into England during their embarrassing 111-run World Cup loss against Australia at the MCG.

Calling the game for Channel 9, the legspinning legend gave the Poms a similar spray to the one he launched on Aussie bowler Mitchell Starc and his "soft" body language during the Test summer.

And once again, it was hard to disagree with him.

"They feared Australia right from the word go today and that's why they bowled first," Warne said, referring to England captain Eoin Morgan's strange decision to send the Australians in on a good wicket under blue skies in Melbourne.

The move backfired, with Australia posting a mammoth total of 9/342.

"It was fear more than anything else. They didn't want to face Mitchell Johnson," Warne added.

England's cause was not helped by the very costly drop of Aaron Finch in the first over. The Aussie opening batsman went on to make 135 off 128 balls, setting up the innings.

"I would have liked them to say, 'Let's try and make 250/260 and keep wickets in hand,'" Warne said.

"The problem England has is that they don't have any death bowlers. Their death bowling is just atrocious at the moment.

"They've got to really work on their fielding and get their intensity up."

Starc has turned his form around since Warnie's spray, but it remains to be seen if England can do the same.

England was rolled for a lowly 231, with Mitchell Marsh picking up the impressive figures of 5/33.

One of Marsh's scalps was the England captain Morgan, who will be under enormous scrutiny after falling for his third duck in four one-day innings.

The one positive for England was a World Cup hat-trick for Steve Finn, but the quick's effort has been described as the worst hat-trick in history as it came of the final three balls of Australia's innings and mattered very little.
