Mohali: England can still stage a turnaround in the one-day series against India despite being on the backfoot, according to spinner James Tredwell who said the team will go into the must-win game trying to draw inspiration from their first game which the visitors won comfortably.
"Obviously the two defeats are in the back of our minds but I think if you look forward to the result too quickly, then you take your eye off the process.
"I guess we are just going into the game trying to execute our skills as best as we can and if we do that and perform like we did in the first game, there is every chance we can turn them over," Tredwell said at the pre-match press conference here on Tuesday.
"We have a point to prove, absolutely. We spoke about it. It can be quite easy in this part of the world that if you get on a bad trot, you can let your heads drop and we can't allow that to creep in," he said.
Tredwell said the team played well in the first game in Rajkot and will draw positives from that match rather than think about the poor performances.
"We played really well in the first game. We will try to draw on that performance and try and reach those heights as opposed to dwelling on the poor performances of the last two.
We have had a couple of days of good practice and we are going into this one pretty confident," he said.
Tredwell has been one of the spinners to have done reasonably well in the series so far and he said it has been a good learning experience.
"It's coming out nicely at the moment. Obviously, it is nice to be out there, first and foremost. And getting a few games under my belt. Thankfully it has gone ok so far but if you rest on that, then you are not looking forward to better things ahead," he pointed out.
