Former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie has defended captain Steve Smith, saying that he was right to appeal for Ben Stoke's controversial dismissal during the second One-Day International (ODI) against England at Lords last Saturday.
Australia's prodigious Steven Smith failed to notch up his first Test double-ton agonisingly by one run on Friday in the second Test against West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. An in-swinging yorker from Jerome Taylor undid the right-handed batsman.
Former all-rounder Ian Botham says it is time to drop Alastair Cook as England captain and replace him with Joe Root adding that ex-Australia pacer Jason Gillespie would be the perfect candidate for the post of England coach.
Jason Gillespie gave England a taste of the discipline they can expect should he become their coach when he dropped Liam Plunkett from Yorkshire`s team to face Hampshire at Headingley on Sunday for missing a training session and photo call.
