Former South Africa coach Gary Kirsten has said that he is not interested in becoming England's new team director.

The 46-year-old led the Proteas to the top of the world rankings before stepping down in July due to family and home commitments.

He told ESPNcricinfo: "I've not been approached about the England job and I'm not considering it at this stage.

"I suppose it is flattering that people are thinking about me. As far as I am concerned, my sentiments have not changed."

Ashley Giles remains the firm favourite to replace Andy Flower, who resigned last week prior to England's 84-run T20 defeat to Australia in the final match of their disappointing tour Down Under.
