Jason Gillespie to discuss England coach job with Andrew Strauss

Shashi / 22 May 2015

The Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie who is in England currently working as the Yorkshire coach is one of the candidates short listed to take on the duty of the head coach of the England National team and it is understood that Gillespie will take a decision regarding this in the next 24 hours.

The England and Wales Cricket board denied commenting on this situation but it is learned that the Director of Cricket at the ECB Andrew Strauss has already spoken to Gillespie on this matter on the phone and that the pair is scheduled to meet and talk face to face in the next 24 hours. However, the ECB did not deny these incidents.

The England cricket team faced a horrid time at the Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and Peter Moores the coach of the England team was removed from the chair following the World Cup. Ever since, 40 year old Gillespie has been one of the main candidates for the job.

It is also understood that the ECB wants the new system in place by the time the Ashes series kicks off and Gillespie who lives in Yorkshire and has taken the team to the County championship this year has said that it will take some persuading for him to leave his job.
