England limited-overs coach Ashley Giles is "very interested" in replacing Andy Flower as team director.
Giles has been tipped as the man most likely to replace Flower, who announced he was leaving the post on Friday.
New England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) managing director Paul Downton is set to begin the task of finding a successor, with that search set to begin after Giles and the England team return home from Australia on Monday.
"I'd be very interested in doing the job, definitely," Giles said, after his side finished their nightmare tour Down Under with an 84-run defeat in Sydney to concede the Twenty20 series 3-0.
"I'm not going to deny that and I'm sure I will be applying for the post."
