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)
