Gillespie focuses on Yorkshire
Australia’s man of the moment Jason Gillespie believes he still has much to do to secure a place in the Ashes squad.
The pace bowler was the hero of his country’s
2-0 Test series win in Bangladesh, when he became the first nightwatchman to make a Test double century.
However, he refuses to get carried away with his fairytale return to the international arena, having fought his back after being dropped during last summer's Ashes in England.
Rather than fret about a place in the Australia side to play England Down Under this winter, Gillespie, 31, will channel his energies into playing county cricket for Yorkshire this summer.
“The Ashes are a long way off,” he said. “My thoughts on this tour have been with how I will play at Yorkshire.
“I’ve got a contract to play county cricket over the Australian winter and I’m just looking forward to that.
“I’m not looking any further than that other than just playing some good cricket for Yorkshire.”
