SYDNEY:- Australia is close to poaching Jason Gillespie from English cricket to be the national team's new full-time fast bowling coach, a report said Wednesday. Head coach Darren Lehmann has been on the look-out for a replacement since Craig McDermott stepped down at the end of the World Twenty20 in India this year. He said last month that the highly-regarded Gillespie, who has been head coach at Yorkshire for four years and was last year touted as a candidate for the England coaching job, was high on his list.–AFP
