Captain Eoin Morgan insisted that he would leave the World Cup with “no regrets” despite England’s failure to qualify out of their group.

England won just two of their six games at the tournament and only avoided their worst-ever World Cup with a rain-affected nine-wicket success over Afghanistan in Sydney on Friday.

“There are no regrets,” Morgan said.

“Absolutely not. We’ve given it everything and certainly I have.”

England and Wales Cricket Board managing director Paul Downton has already confirmed a “major review” will be launched into the failings at the tournament.

That had led to speculation some senior players could have played their last one-day international, but Morgan does not think there should be a clear-out as preparations begin for the 2019 World Cup, which will be held in England.

“No absolutely not,” he added.

“We haven’t got guys coming towards the end of their careers. I don’t see a reason to.

“I think we have the right calibre of squad, guys on the outside need to be banging down the door.

“It’s an easy thing to sit here while we are not doing well and say somebody outside the squad is better.

“We considered everybody when selecting the squad. I still believe we had the right group of players here.”
