Bowling Coach
"(Craig) White, currently Yorkshire’s Second XI coach, has been earmarked by Warwickshire’s director of cricket Ashley Giles as the man to fill the gap left by Allan Donald’s return to South Africa and he is understood to have had talks at Edgbaston.

Giles is an admirer of White’s from their England playing days and he is impressed with the work that the 39-year-old has done in recent seasons developing Yorkshire’s latest crop of talented youngsters.

Though White has been offered a new one-year contract by Yorkshire, which will also mean he will continue to be registered as a player, the chance of working with Warwickshire’s bowlers across the age groups and to become Giles’ right-hand man is bound to appeal. "

Giles has preferred former Warwickshire players to form his back-room staff so far - he recruited Donald and has appointed Dougie Brown as Second XI coach and Academy director - but White’s experience of bowling both off-spin and seam during his county and international career have persuaded him to look further afield on this occasion.

White, who made his Yorkshire debut in 1990, played 30 Tests and 51 ODIs for England and his final first team appearance for Yorkshire came in 2008. "

Be a good signing i think.
Chris, don't ask why Windy. No please don't. No.

We got on really well with him when he came to Kings Heath with the Yorkshire 2nd team. I like him.
