England coach Peter Moores stunned by Cricket World Cup exit

England coach Peter Moores admits that he is stunned by the team's group-stage exit at the Cricket World Cup.

England coach Peter Moores has admitted that he is struggling to understand how the team failed to reach the Cricket World Cup quarter-finals.

The Three Lions suffered a shock exit from the tournament on Monday as they were beaten by Bangladesh in Pool A.

England have now lost four and won just one of their five games in the Cricket World Cup.

"It is hard to get round it - I thought 275 was chaseable and we didn't do it," Moores told BBC Sport. "It is hard to analyse anything at the moment. I have been in the dressing room and everybody has their heads down. They are all gutted.

"We got off to a reasonable start - most people thought spin would be the problem on that pitch but we got bowled out by the seamers. At some point we have to look at one-day cricket full stop and where we go with it."

England finish their campaign on Friday when they face Afghanistan in Sydney.
