Giles Clarke: Ashley Giles strong candidate as new sole coach
England will return to having one coach in charge of all international cricket formats with limited-overs coach Ashley Giles a "strong candidate" for the job.
England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Giles Clarke confirmed the move at a media briefing, following Andy Flower's resignation as team director.
Flower split coaching duties with Giles in 2012 and focused on the Test side.
While acknowledging that former Warwickshire director of cricket and England spinner Giles, 40, would be a leading contender to take on the additional responsibilities of preparing the Test side, Clarke said others would also be considered.
