Jason Gillespie: Ex-Yorkshire coach joins Kent as assistant to Matt Walker

Jason Gillespie: Ex-Yorkshire coach joins Kent as assistant to Matt Walker

Kent have appointed former Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie as assistant to Matt Walker on an interim basis. The 41-year-old will stay with Kent until Allan Donald earns the qualifications to gain a visa and become assistant on a full-time basis.

He led Yorkshire to promotion from Division Two and two County Championship titles before stepping down at the end of last season. “To get Jason on board is a brilliant coup,” Walker said. “To have an experienced ex-head coach come into our ranks is great for me and the lads. His bowling expertise is like-for-like with Allan.”

Former Australia bowler Gillespie, who has also coached Big Bash side Adelaide Strikers and Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab, left Yorkshire in September to return to Australia(BBC,2017)
