England Cricket: Gillespie Trimmed As Giles Drifts

Jason Gillespie has been cut from 6/4 to 11/10 to be named as the next permanent England Coach with Justin Langer second in the running at 3/1. Ashley Giles had been seen as a contender at 10/1 but he is now out to 20/1.

“The smart money is on Jason Gillespie and the odds suggest there could be an announcement in days,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
