Nottinghamshire Bowling Coach Andy Pick Interested To Be England’s Bowling Coach
The departure of Ottis Gibson means that the post for England’s bowling coach has been vacated and England have tried many contenders for the position in the recent past. Many county coaches have expressed their interest in being the bowling coach of the national side. Now, Nottinghamshire’s bowling coach Andy Pick has shown his interest to be the bowling coach of the national side.
Pick was a part of the bowling coach department of the English team in the one-off T20 against the Windies. Pick is the second Notts coach to be linked with the national side after Paul Franks joined the national side in the Test match between England and South Africa at Trent Bridge in July. Pick played his domestic cricket for Nottinghamshire and took 495 first-class wickets for the club.
He was best known for his express pace and his fiery spells. He also picked up 242 One Day wickets for the club. He represented the club for 14 long years. In the 2007 World Cup, Pick was the head coach of Canada.
He has also coached England U-19’s in the three cricket World Cups, reaching the semi-finals on two occasions, i.e., 2004 and 2006. Pick said:
“You want to work at the highest level, whether you are playing or coaching, A chance to work at that level would be fantastic. It has whetted my appetite a bit and we will see what happens when the job comes up.”
Pick added, “England will be looking for a new bowling coach with Ottis going to South Africa, It was a great experience to see what they do at that level and it was flattering to be asked.”
