Jason Gillespie has moved to distance himself further from speculation linking him with a position in Australia's coaching set-up.

Yorkshire’s first-team coach, who has steered the county to successive Championship titles, was mentioned as a possible bowling coach when the position became available at the end of the summer.

But in a statement on Yorkshire’s website, Gillespie said: “I was made aware that Darren (Lehmann) referred to me by name in a radio interview last month. It appears from media speculation that I am someone that Darren and Cricket Australia wish to speak to.
