Saker turns down Warwickshire
Tuesday 01 January 2013
England bowling coach David Saker has revealed he rejected an offer to become Warwickshire's new director of cricket.
Last year's County Championship Division One winners are looking for someone to replace Ashley Giles, who has taken charge of England's limited-overs sides. Australian Saker admitted he was impressed by the county's overtures but believes he still has plenty to achieve with England.
"I had talks with Warwickshire and it was certainly an attractive offer they made," Saker said.
"But it has come a little too early for me. I have unfinished business with the England team."
