Bowler Tim Bresnan says confidence remains high in the England camp that they can win their final three group matches at the ICC World Twenty20.

England slipped to defeat via the Duckworth-Lewis method against New Zealand in their tournament-opener after bad weather stopped play in Bangladesh and they now must bounce back against Sri Lanka in their second game on Thursday.

Stuart Broad’s side enter the clash in Chittagong as slight underdogs but seamer Bresnan says the players will give everything to get back to winning ways.

He said: “Things haven’t gone our way over the last few months but we still believe we’re playing good cricket, turning out good performances. But 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.”

England called up Craig Kieswetter into their squad as a replacement for the injured Luke Wright and he will hope to take his chance against Sri Lanka and then in the group games that follow against South Africa (March 29) and the Netherlands (March 31).

England may have to win those three to move into the knockout stage and Bresnan believes it is an achievable aim if “everything clicks together”.

“We’re pretty confident we can win the next three,” he added. “We just need to put in the performance and have everything click together.”
