Peter Moores has "no regrets" over England return

England coach Peter Moores insists that his side are 'doing everything they possibly can' to turn around their faltering fortunes at the World Cup.

Peter Moores has insisted that he does not regret his decision to return as England coach, despite his side facing an embarrassing World Cup exit.

Having initially left his position following a falling out with then-captain Kevin Pietersen in 2009, Moores returned to the helm last year to help guide his country to the tournament in Australia and New Zealand.

However, defeat against Bangladesh tomorrow will spell the end of England's campaign, following three heavy defeats from their opening four games.

Despite this, the 52-year-old remains confident that he is the right man to turn around his side's fortunes.

"I have no regrets at all," Moores is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. "I came in because I felt I could help make a difference. You have to be one of a lot of people working together and we know we've certainly been behind in the one-day format and have to get better.

"I've no regrets on taking on that challenge. As a coach you have only one focus now and that's the World Cup. It comes once every four years and we have one goal at the moment – to win tomorrow and stay in this tournament.

"I'm fine because we've got a very committed group of players and coaches and that's the most important thing. We're doing everything we possibly can to improve quickly and start to get the results we need."

England must also see off Afghanistan in Sydney next Friday if they are to have any chance of progressing through to the quarter-final stage.
