Moores: Players excited about must-win clash
England must win both their remaining group matches, starting with Bangladesh on Monday, to reach the quarter-finals, and coach Peter Moores says his players are 'excited' about the challenge.
England have only won one game, against Scotland, and have suffered big defeats to Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The Tigers are three points ahead of them on the table as well.
Moores said ahead of the match in Adelaide: "We've got to get a win to stay in the tournament.
"There's pressure in the World Cup and there's certainly pressure on us as a team because we haven't played as well as we'd like to have done.
"Yes it's a pressure game. In our preparation I only see a lot of people very excited to play.
"They feel they have a point to prove and they want to go out and start proving that.”
Moores was tight-lipped when asked about the team composition though, with batsman Gary Ballance likely to make way for Alex Hales in the top order after a dire run of form.
But Moores said: "No, we're not going to have that today. I think like everybody else, we'll wait until the toss of the coin tomorrow.
"We've always had plenty of time to think about our team, which we've done, and we'll speak to the captain and want to keep that until tomorrow. So we're not going to be announcing any team news."
