England limited overs coach Ashley Giles says he will apply for the Test coaching role left vacant by the removal of Andy Flowers.

Giles told reporters after England's 84-run loss to Australia in the third Twenty20 international he is eager to coach England in all three forms of the game.

Flowers lost the test coaching role after England's 5-0 loss to Australia in the Ashes Test series and Giles led England to a 4-1 loss in the ODIs and 3-0 loss in the Twenty20 series.

Giles said the England test coaching role is "one of the biggest jobs in cricket and I'd apply for it because I want to do it. As someone who was very proud to play for England I've been proud to coach the one-day side. To do the whole job would be a fantastic opportunity, but it's hard work as well."
