Former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie has resigned from coaching Western Australia and Adelaide Strikers to take up the responsibility of Pakistan cricket team’s head coach.

According to Australian media, Jason Gillespie had one year remaining on his contract with Western Australia where he was working as the head coach of Western Australia and Adelaide Strikers.

Gillespie is a strong candidate to coach the Pakistan team.


Speaking on the occasion, he said, “I am proud of what I have achieved with the Australian Cricket Association, I am eager to explore new opportunities and excited to embark on a new chapter in my career.”

The Adelaide Strikers reached the final six times under Jason Gillespie’s coaching.
