England can avoid 7-0 drubbing in NatWest Series: Anderson

Posted By: Staff

London, Sep 19(ANI): England paceman James Anderson has said that the England team would be looking forward to avoid a humiliating 7-0 whitewash against Australia in the NatWest Series.

England team has been out of sorts after the historic Ashes series win, and in the absence of experienced players like Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen they have not been able to prevent Australians from taking a 6-0 lead.

"Obviously, we don't want to lose 7-0. There'll be a lot of pride to play for on Sunday. We're very disappointed with the way we've played in this series, we've never really clicked. But, we're leaving for the Champions Trophy in South Africa on Monday and we can look forward to that as a fresh start," The Sun quoted Anderson, as saying.

"The vast majority of us in the dressing room still believe we can beat Australia and think that 6-0 flatters them a bit," he added.

The 27-year-old further said that Australians have taken note of England's weaknesses and have been able to take advantage of it.

"Throughout the series, it seems as though we've tried to make it look as complicated as possible. I suppose when confidence is low as a batting team, it affects everything, not just shot selection," Anderson said.

England will now be playing for pride in the final contest at Chester-le-Street on Sunday. (ANI)
