    lightning doesn't strike twice / 'cake tin'

    England hope lightning doesn't strike twice

    England are back in Wellington, where on February 20 they were bowled out for 123 in 33.2 overs and lost to New Zealand by eight wickets with 226 balls remaining. That defeat equaled their heaviest defeat in terms of balls remaining, and against Sri Lanka at the Westpac Stadium on Sunday they will be looking to be much, much better than their last trip here.

    Chris Woakes, the fast bowler who emerged from Brendon McCullum's assault with exemplary figures of 3-1-8-2 on that dismal day last Friday, chose not to dwell on any possible trepidation of England's return to the 'Cake Tin' and instead said this World Cup fixture was an opportunity to go back and right a wrong.

    Refer to the above text, what is the meaning of underlined words?

    England hope they don't suffer a repeat of that humiliating defeat.

    The 'Cake Tin' is the nickname of the Wellington Regional Cricket Stadium. Click here to see why it is so called.
