    Default Giles a strong candidate for coaching position

    MELBOURNE: England Cricket Board Chairman Giles Clarke hinted Saturday that Ashley Giles could succeed Andy Flower as Test coach after the former Zimbabwe international quit following their Ashes whitewash.

    Flower resigned on Friday to allow the team to rebuild after their disastrous tour of Australia, where they lost the Test series 5-0.
    However, he is remaining a selector ‘for the time being’; with British reports saying the decision to stand down was his alone and not prompted by the Ashes humiliation.
    Flower had already ceded coaching control of England’s one-day team to former England spinner Giles, and said he had come to the conclusion that a man in his position needed to be ‘responsible across all formats’.
    Clarke suggested Giles could take over all three formats, without putting a timeframe on any appointment.
    “We would all agree he is a very strong candidate,” said Clarke in Melbourne. “We have the highest regard for him as a man and coach of great integrity and capability.
    “He played a lot of cricket for England and is respected in the game. It may well be that other outstanding candidates emerge as Paul Downton [England cricket’s managing director] leads the process.”
    England’s next Test match is not until the northern hemisphere summer, when they host Sri Lanka.
    Clarke denies Pietersen controversy
    Last month British press reports, denied by Flower and suggested he was not prepared to carry on as England coach so long as Kevin Pietersen remained in the team.
    Clarke refused to be drawn in whether the controversial batsman had played his last Test.
    “I have spent zero time on him [Pietersen] or whatever he or the selectors are choosing to do,” he said.
    “I have been focused on the International Cricket Council business and Paul Downton, quite rightly, is looking at the coaching strategy as far as Andy is concerned.”
    Pietersen has signalled he intends to keep playing international cricket until at least the 2015 Ashes, with a clearer indication of his future coming this week when England name their squad for the one-day series in West Indies and World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
    England play their final Twenty20 international in Sydney on Sunday.

    Haar tu waisey gaye hein
    کہاں اتنی سزائیں تھیں بھلا اس زندگانی میں
    ہزاروں گھر ہوئے روشن جو میرا دل جلا محسنؔ
