Ashley Giles still keen on England job

Ashley Giles believes that he is still the right man to lead England despite the team's defeat to the Netherlands in the World Twenty20.

Ashley Giles has insisted that he still wants the England job despite the team's defeat to the Netherlands in the World Twenty20.

England were beaten by 45 runs on Monday as their unsuccessful campaign in Bangladesh saw them finish at the bottom of Group 1.

Giles, who has been in charge of the limited-overs sides since 2012, believes that he is still the right man to coach England across all formats of the game as the England and Wales Cricket Board looks for a successor to Andy Flower.

"I believed I was [the right man] 24 hours ago, I'm not sure that one performance has changed my mind," he told Sky Sports News.

"You have bad days at the office and this is a real bad one. I still believe I can do the job for England, it's for other people to decide eventually if I can or not."

The ECB is due to appoint a new England team director by the end of April.
