England are desperate to avoid 10th successive defeat against Australia, says Jos Butler

England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, on Thursday said that the visitors are trying to avoid 10th successive defeats in the hand of Australia.

“We are very desperate to avoid that because it’s not a tag anyone would like,” said Buttler.

“But tomorrow is another opportunity to turn that around. They’ve still got a pretty strong squad and anyone coming for them in will be full of confidence because they’ve been winning games of cricket. I don’t think playing Australia in any circumstances is going to be easy whoever they have left out. We’ve got to put in a complete performance to win a game and that’s something we haven’t been able to do yet.”

Butler said that Engand is sticking together as a team to avoid such a record.

“We’ve talked about remaining tight as a group. Sydney was a huge disappointment and we should have gone there at 1-1 because we wasted a great opportunity to win a game in Brisbane. We’ve got to try to move on now. One-day cricket is a tough game to play when your confidence has been knocked. You have to play with a free mind and we can’t worry about the consequences of playing shots that might get us out. We had a good chat on Tuesday and everyone is feeling refreshed.”

“The Australians are playing a very confident brand of cricket which is tough to do when you’re losing games. We all have to forget about worrying about things, realise what good players we are and be confident in that.”
