English coach Chris Silverwood has defiantly claimed he wants to continue in the head coaching role for England despite a disastrous Ashes tour of Australia.

England have been routed to the tune of 4-0 by a red-hot Australian outfit, and with a bomb out at the T20 World Cup prior to the Ashes, the English press have rightly been honing in on the coach.

While Australian coach Justin Langer is facing issues for non results driven reasons, Silverwood's are all about results, while damning accusations about the tour have also come to light in the last 24 hours.

Silverwood has been in charge of the English team since the end of the 2019 season when Trevor Bayliss, who is now in contention for the Australian job, departed.

Managing director of the ECB Ashley Giles has previously spoken out about the need for "systemic change" within the English camp, while Silverwood told the media in Hobart that he is already preparing for England's next assignment, a Test tour of the Caribbean in March.

"I accept the job I'm it comes with that level of criticism and the uncertainty as well," Silverwood told reporters in Hobart.

"Until I'm told differently I'll start planning for the West Indies. I want to carry on but there are decisions above that will be made.

"My job is going to be under scrutiny. There will be a review when we get home and part and parcel of that will be my job."

Silverwood also opened up on the need for change in English county cricket.

"I think given some changes that I think we need within the county structures, I would love to help affect those changes, and I would like to put some of this right," Silverwood said.

"I think I can do that. I think I'm a good coach and I would love to be given that opportunity but it's out of my hands at the moment.

"We've reflected about the players, but there will be certain aspects I've got to reflect on, because I'm not a finished article as a coach and I want to get better all the time."
