Coach Peter Moores and captain Eoin Morgan are a "perfect partnership" for England, says bowler Chris Jordan.

England were knocked out of the Cricket World Cup on Monday after losing to Bangladesh in Adelaide.

Moores, 52, has been criticised for his reliance on data analysis and statistics, amid calls for a reorganisation of English cricket.

But England bowler Jordan insisted the players backed his methods "100%" and said he was doing a "really good job".

Jordan said Moores, who is in his second spell in charge of England, lifts the players with his personality.

"He comes in with enthusiasm every day and gets us up for games and for training," said the Sussex bowler, 26.

Jordan added that Moores and Morgan "are working perfectly as a partnership and singing off the same hymn sheet".

Jordan also said the players must take responsibility for a disappointing World Cup campaign, which ended following defeats by group rivals Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

"Our preparation has been second to none, but off the field the coach can only prepare us as best he can," he said.

"When we cross that line, I think it is down to us. Quite simply, we did not perform as well as we should have done. The consequence of that is that we are out of the tournament."

England and Wales Cricket Board managing director Paul Downton has confirmed that Moores, who was only re-appointed as England head coach in April last year, will keep his job,
