Adelaide, Mar 6: Jos Buttler expects England to resurrect their World Cup campaign, saying playing under pressure may just be what the struggling team needs ahead of the last two must-win games.
Eoin Morgan's side, who have just one win in four Pool A matches, must defeat Bangladesh in Adelaide on Monday and minnows Afghanistan in Sydney on March 13 if they to have a chance of staying afloat in the tournament.
Even that may not be enough if Bangladesh, who have five points to England's two, upset co-hosts New Zealand in Hamilton on March 13 to squeak through to the quarter-finals.
But Buttler said England were confident they could turn their fortunes around.
"We are confident about ourselves and back the quality we have," said the England wicket-keeper, who is also vice-captain to Morgan.
"We have not played as well as we should have, or would have liked to, but if we get near our best in these two games you would think we're strong enough to come out on top.
"We have got to win two games of cricket and maybe it's good to have that pressure on ourselves. Hopefully, that will bring out the performance that we need.    AFP
