Former test spinner in line for England coach

7:36 am on 3 February 2014

The former test spin bowler Ashley Giles has confirmed he's keen to succeed the departed Andy Flower as director of the England cricket team.

Giles, who has been England's limited-overs coach since 2012, was speaking after Allistair Cook's side suffered an 84-run Twenty20 defeat to Australia, which meant they lost the series 3-0 to wind up their disastrous Down Under Ashes tour.
