Tim Bresnan is an optimistic guy. And there is enough reason to believe in it as the England fast-bowler feels that his side can bounce back in the ongoing ICC World T20 in Bangladesh despite losing their opening game by nine runs to New Zealand.

Though the statistics weigh against England as they have now lost seven of their last eight T20 matches still Bresnan feels that his side can end their lean streak and start off by winning their next T20 encounter against Sri Lanka on March 27, reports givemesport.

“Things haven’t gone our way over the last few months but we still believe we’re playing good cricket, turning out good performances. Stringing together everything at the same time is a problem for us. If we can find that spark and everything clicks, we can beat anyone in the world,” said Bresnan about England’s horrible run of form as of late.

“We’re still working at the same rate, we’re still training hard, we’re still as fit as we can be. There are a lot of things that have happened that put a dent in things and impacted everything. Coupled with the fact that I believe we’ve been a little unlucky with a few results,” added Bresnan.

When asked about England ‘s next game against Sri Lanka, Bresnan replied: “We want to put that all to bed now, draw a line under it and move forward.”

“We’ve got a lot of cricket to play in this tournament to get out of the group and eventually win it, if we can. We’re pretty confident we can win the next three. We just need to put in the performance and have everything click together,” added Bresnan who maintains that England have put behind the opening match loss to New Zealand far behind them.

On questions of England calling up Craig Kieswetter in place of the injured Luke Wright, Bresnan replied: “We know he’s a powerful striker. He can bat in the top order or do that position that Wrighty would have filled at number seven, being a power-hitter there.”

“We’re disappointed to lose Luke, he had a grade one tear. It’s a shame he’s going home. [Kieswetter] is an exciting, powerful hitter and he’s there if we need him,” signed off Bresnan.
