Giles named England ODI coach

Giles will take on his new role immediately, with his first ODI series in charge in India before England play T20 and ODI matches in New Zealand.

In a separate statement, Warwickshire chief executive Colin Povey said the county champions were sad to see Giles leave but wished him well. "This is a fantastic opportunity for Ashley and he leaves with our full support," said Povey.

England have won just one major ICC limited overs tournament the 2010 World Twenty20 but will look to take their first global 50-over title when they stage next year's Champions Trophy.
