London, May 13 (ANI): England all rounder Paul Collingwood claims the team is bristling with confidence after hammering West Indies in the first Test at Lord’s last week.
The Durham all-rounder believes England is back on track.
“It has been a fresh start again for the summer and we have started off really well. Confidence at the moment is sky high, we are developing all the time as a team and we are moving in the right direction. We have got a job to do this week. As I said it is unfinished business, the West Indies beat us in their home patch 1-0 in the winter and we still have a job to do,” The Sun quoted Collingwood, as saying.
“We have one game to go and we need to put in that similar kind of performance and hopefully go 2-0 up. This is our last Test match before the Ashes and we know that confidence and winning formulas and momentum are huge to go into the series,” he added.
Collingwood also predicted a bright future for fast bowler Graham Onions, who took seven wickets on debut.
“He is very excited, he has come in and he has taken a five-for. For someone to come in on their first game and get up on that honours board will mean a hell of a lot to him. I’m sure he is looking forward to this week. He bowled fantastically the other day,” Collingwood said. (ANI)
