Not long back I had the privilege of popping up to Headingley to interview Jason Gillespie, coach there for the past two seasons, during which time The People's Democratic Republic of Yorkshire have earned a promotion to Division 1 and then, last year, finished as runners-up to Durham. 

It's easy to judge a book by a wildman cover, but I found an engaging, clear-thinking character (particularly when not pushing the YCCC line that I wasn't there to talk about) who has many interesting things to say about fast bowling and coaching, the subject of the first part of our chat. We also chatted about his career highlights and disappointments, to come n a forthcoming Gleanings on Cricinfo. Meantime, have a read of this. 

You do what you need to do for the team
