Paul Collingwood dismisses retirement talk

England's all-rounder, Paul Collingwood has scotched speculation on his one-day future after coming in to bat at number eight during the World Cup defeat to Bangladesh.

Paul Collingwood was member of England's famous World Twenty20 triumph last year, has had an unimpressive run in the tournament so far, managing just 61 runs and one wicket from four league matches. He missed the win over South Africa through injury.

Collingwood shrugged off England's topsy-turvy form at the World Cup where they need to beat the West Indies on Thursday to keep up their hopes of a last-eight place.

Collingwood has garnered 5,092 runs and 111 wickets from 197 one-day internationals so far.

Earlier, Paul Collingwood quit Tests during the Sydney Test against Australia in January this year to allow himself to focus on one-day internationals and Twenty20 cricket.
