Ashley Giles on 'bittersweet' England appointment

New England one-day international and Twenty20 head coach Ashley Giles says his appointment is 'bittersweet' following 21 seasons with County champions Warwickshire.

However the former England off-spinner, who took 143 wickets in 54 Test appearances for his country between 1998 and 2006, admits it is "far easier" for him to leave the club as national champions and reveals he will share national selection duties with Test coach Andy Flower.

Giles will take charge of the one-day side for the first time against India in January, before leading the team on their tour of New Zealand a month later.
