Former Yorkshire cricket coach Jason Gillespie has been named the new head coach of Sussex.

The 42-year-old Australian led Yorkshire to promotion from the second division in 2012 and back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015.

He will replace Mark Davis at Sussex when he starts the role in January.

I look forward to getting over there and playing my role in helping Sussex achieve its on and off-field goals for 2018 and beyond.
