Moores moving on from England sacking

Peter Moores says the progress of England's young players since March's World Cup exit shows he did a "pretty good job" as head coach.

Moores was sacked in May after a dismal World Cup was followed by a drawn Test series with the West Indies.

But England have bounced back by beating World Cup finalists New Zealand 3-2 in the recent 50-over series.

"I feel we did a pretty good job with lots of players coming in," Moores told BBC East Midlands Today.

"The World Cup was a huge frustration for everybody, that we didn't get it out of ourselves, but we've seen a really good reaction this summer with players coming in and playing a more expressive game of cricket.

"I loved my time there [with England]. The players were great, we worked very hard, we had some successes and some tough times.

"That's part of bringing a lot of young players into the side. It was always going to be an exciting time, but they could be inconsistent.

"It was more frustration than anger, I think [to be sacked]."

Moores begins a three-month spell as coaching consultant at Nottinghamshire with Friday night's T20 Blast game against the Worcestershire Rapids.

It is a transition he has made before, joining Lancashire after his first spell in charge of England ended in early 2009, following the resignation of Kevin Pietersen as captain.

He added: "It's always a tough time when you leave a job of that sort of profile, but that is all in the past now. For me it is all about looking forward and getting stuck in with Notts.

"You go through it, but I'm pretty good at picking my self up. I love the game, but it doesn't owe me anything."
