London, Sep.14 (ANI): Wicketkeeper Matt Prior believes England can start winning again after suffering a four-nil series loss to Australia.

After Saturday's seven-wicket drubbing against Australia at Lord's, England are sliding towards a humiliating 7-0 whitewash.

The Aussies will take on the Poms in the fifth match at Trent Bridge tomorrow.

"There's no getting away from it - we've been very disappointing and the batters have to hold our hands up. It's not through lack of effort, I just think one-day cricket is about getting on a roll," The Sun quoted Prior, as saying.

"If you don't, you can put a lot of pressure on yourself immediately. We have a lot of talent in the dressing room. I genuinely believe that, if we stick with these guys and build a team, it will come good. Right now, it should potentially be 2-2. We should have won the first two games but weren't ruthless enough," he added.

Skipper Strauss insists everyone must remain positive.

He said: "The cancer, the thing that you really want to avoid, is becoming more and more negative because that won't get you anywhere. A few guys are low on confidence and one-day cricket is not a game in which you can scratch around for long. You have to play in a positive fashion." (ANI)
