Moores appeals for more time
Peter Moores has asked for time to continue his rebuilding job with England as his future becomes the subject of increased speculation with some commentators suggesting he could be sacked within days.
Moores feels that, despite a defeat in Barbados that held England to a drawn Test series in the Caribbean, his young side are progressing and hopes to be given the chance to take them into the Ashes series before any firm decisions are taken over his record as coach.
England's bad World Cup performance was damaging and Moores, who altered the team plans on the eve of the tournament, was partially culpable.
But England's record in Test cricket 4 wins and a defeat in the last 6 games is less bad, and Moores feels the signs are there to suggest results will improve
