SYDNEY: Australia are close to poaching Jason Gillespie from English cricket to be the national team’s new full-time fast bowling coach. Head coach Darren Lehmann has been on the lookout for a replacement since Craig McDermott stepped down at the end of the World T20. He said last month that 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, Sydney Morning Herald reported.
