"I want to carry on desperately," said Moores, who admitted his fate lay in the hands of his employers at the England and Wales Cricket Board. "It's certainly not my decision. I hope (to stay).

"I'm here to try and make a difference. Certainly on a day like today you look at it and you know we have a lot of work to do in one-day cricket — there's no doubt about that.

"It's a game we felt we should have won. We should have chased 275 and we didn't do it - we have to take that on the chin."

ECB: We have faith in Moores
