Former Delhi Daredevils’ assistant coach David Saker is in the running to be England’s next bowling coach.

The 43-year-old, who as bowling coach has led Victoria to the past two Sheffield Shield titles, is the only Australian among the four candidates shortlisted by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to replace Ottis Gibson, who quit to become head coach of the West Indies.

Saker is due to fly to England this weekend with an interview with the ECB scheduled for early next week, The Age reports.

Saker late last year was at the helm of the Delhi Daredevils in the Champions League Twenty20, after regular coach Greg Shipperd stayed with Victoria.
