According to The Guardian, Gillespie will take up the job with the blessing of current County champions Yorkshire.
The 39-year-old was favourite to take over the England job from Peter Moores following the side’s World Cup debacle, however, it is believed the former paceman will be announced as the Strikers’ new head coach in the coming days.
Gillespie reportedly turned down the Melbourne Renegades job last month, with England bowling coach David Saker subsequently filling the role.
The exit of current South Australia coach Darren Berry is expected to be announced today according to The Advertiser, after the Redbacks secured a fifth wooden spoon in six seasons.
Berry made an unusual decision four weeks’ personal leave following the Strikers’ BBL semi-final loss to the Sydney Sixers in January, with many suggesting it was the beginning of the end for the former wicketkeeper.
