Jason Gillespie will not take a role with Cricket Australia

Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie has confirmed he will not be leaving to take a role with Cricket Australia.

The 41-year-old Australian has led Yorkshire to back-to-back County Championship titles and had been linked with a position in his home country.

The former Test bowler revealed he had met with Australia coach Darren Lehman but had not been offered a job.

Gillespie said over radio -



I was not offered a job and I have made it very clear that I would not be applying for any role with Cricket Australia.



Gillespie, who has lost just four of his 69 County Championship matches as Yorkshire coach, also has a role with Big Bash side Adelaide Strikers.

But he said his family commitments would make taking a job with a national side a difficult proposition.

He further went on to add that at this point in his life he was not prepared to stay away from his family for long and that the role as a national team coach will add on the pressure further.
