Northants batsman Alex Wakely told BBC Radio Northanmpton:

"We haven't given ourselves a chance. We haven't batted well again.

"It's been the same story throughout the one-day competitions and we're not good enough at the moment.

"We're going to be doing some soul searching to find out what's not working for us

"It's hurting. We're going to have to play for some pride."
