“I’m 100% committed to Yorkshire”

Former Australia pace bowler and Yorkshire head coach Jason Gillespie has ruled himself out of becoming England’s new head coach following Andy Flower’s resignation.

Gillespie was earmarked as one of the frontrunners to replace Flower, but he told ESPNcricinfo that he was “100% committed to Yorkshire”.

“I’m 100% committed to Yorkshire, [I] really want to work with our players and support staff to achieve success at our County,” Gillespie said. “We believe our club is moving in the right direction on and off the field and I am excited to be part of it. I am learning a lot about coaching and people where I am now. I love my job, I would look at an international opportunity down the line but not at this stage.”
