Gough targets World Cup

Gough has one eye on the 2007 World Cup
Darren Gough is targeting a place in England's 2007 World Cup squad.

The Essex fast bowler retired from Test cricket last year because of injury problems but remains a part of the national one-day squad.

And he told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek: "I want to keep playing for England and help them achieve their goal of winning the 2007 World Cup.

"I know I can do a good job for the next two or three years and it is a great opportunity."

Gough played an integral part in England's first one-day win over the West Indies earlier in the week, taking two wickets and steering his side to a two-wicket victory with the bat.

The 33-year-old insisted the lure of one-day cricket was enough.

He said: "I realised I couldn't play Tests five days in a row at the level I wanted to play, so I went out with a good record at the right time and I don't miss that.

"But in one-day cricket I know I can still go on.

"I am also only 10 wickets away from reaching 200 one-day international wickets so that would be nice."
