BBC Sport - Ashley Giles 'still believes' he could do England job

Giles 'hurt' by England rejection

Former England limited-overs coach Ashley Giles says he is struggling to accept missing out on becoming England's head coach and still believes he could do the job.

Giles, who played in 54 Tests for his country, says he "went from being one of the most connected people in English cricket to getting my P45 in the post".

In his first full-length BBC interview since missing out on the England coach's role, he told Test Match Special: "I thought I was a frontrunner, but losing to the Netherlands was the final nail in the coffin."
