England skipper Eoin Morgan thinks that England have to strive hard in remainder of the ODI series after having lost the first match. Morgan also feels that England have a long way to go and Australia are a much better team in ODIs. The right-hand batsman said that his side lost the game after the 27th over when Shane Watson broke the partnership. The 28-year old said that England needs to show resilience and they can do it by building confidence and a better temperament for the upcoming matches. The middle-order batsman who played a decent knock of 38 runs on 46 balls yesterday believes that the problem that plagues his team is that batsmen are not able to convert starts into big scores, him included.

In a conversation with cricket.com.au he said, “We [England] can certainly improve. We are a long way off the world’s best at the moment. Morgan said. Australia are a very strong side. We’ll have to play really well to beat them, and we didn’t do enough here today… I think down the line this [showing resilience and confidence] is going to be a big part of our learning curve. Probably in a year’s time, we’ll be expected to chase that down more often than not – especially with that sort of a start. They put us under the pump, but I think we’re a better side than that [the way England performed].” READ: Eoin Morgan, Steven Smith feel new ODI rules will help bowlers
