Lancashire coach Peter Moores has confirmed that he is indeed interested in the England head coaching job, and is part of the 'process' after being put on a four-man short list by the ECB.

Moores, who coached the national side in 2008/9, has come under close scrutiny after the front-runner for the job, Ashley Giles, suffered a dire string of results with the limited-over side that seemingly damaged his 'sure thing' prospects.

The other men on the list, aside from Giles and Moores, are Mike Newell and Trevor Bayliss, though the media seem to be focused on Moores as the alternate to Giles.

The Lancs coach said: "I'm a passionate Englishman and the thought of coaching your country is something I'm interested in.

"I'm in the process so I suppose it depends what happens – I'm very conscious that I'm in a job now that I've loved and I still love.

"There's an excitement to have another go at it, and a frustration at the last time because in some ways you always have a vision when you're doing any job of where you want to go.

"There's a draw to go back and work in that environment because you're working with great players and it's a very exciting place to work.

"It's obviously an interesting time at the moment. It's been a tough winter and it would be an interesting challenge if it came along."
