Gillespie denies Cricket Australia approach reports


Jason Gillespie is adamant that no talks have been held with Cricket Australia (CA) over the possibility of him taking up a coaching role with the national side.

The Yorkshire coach, who made 71 Test appearances for Australia, has long been linked with a position on the international stage, but continues to reject reports he has spoken with CA.

It had been suggested the 41-year-old might be persuaded to join Darren Lehmann's set-up as a bowling coach.

But Gillespie told Fox Sports: "Just to be absolutely clear, I have not spoken to CA about a role with the Australian cricket team.

"Darren mentioned my name in a radio interview a while back [in April] re: me being involved, so it stands to reason that I will be linked to certain positions.

"Bear in mind I have not applied for any role with CA nor do I intend to. I am currently very happy in my roles with Yorkshire CCC and the Adelaide Strikers."
