London:

England's ODI coach Ashley Giles is ready to take over as the head coach of England following the resignation of Andy Flower.


Giles, who is with the ODI team in the Caribbeans, said being the England coach was "the biggest job in cricket" and he would like to grab the chance.

"This is the biggest job in cricket, and as an English coach I'd like the opportunity, but that's out of my hands," Giles was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph Sunday.

Giles, a former England spinner, believes he can perform.

"The bosses will make their judgment as to whether I'm the right man for the job but I believe I can do this job and I'd be very proud to do it as well...

"The next few weeks are bound to have an impact but the one thing I don't want to do is see this tour and Bangladesh as a job interview.

"This is about the best thing for English cricket and the best thing was to get this group together to give a lengthy period to prepare for the World T20," he said.
