Jayawardene not eager to coach India, fully committed to Khulna Titans
Sri Lankan Cricket maestro, Mahela Jayawardene took social media site Twitter to disclose that he is flattered about him being linked for the post of the currently vacant coach’s job for Team India. However, he went on to clarify that he is not too interested to join any team on a full-time basis and fully committed to Mumbai Indians and Khulna Titans, according to the reports from india.com and Hindustan Times. After the retirement, Jayawardene has been involved with various teams as a coach. He was the coach of the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians this season that went on to win the tournament. And currently he is committed to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) franchise Khulna Titans as a head coach. He also had a short stint with the English cricket team as the batting consultant. According to the reports on Sunday, Mahela applied for the currently vacant job of the head coach along with Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody. However, Mahela Jayawardena was quick to deny all the reports of him being involved with Indian Cricket Team as he tweeted: “Flattered by speculation linking me to India coaching job but I am not looking at full-time positions right now.” “I am completely focused on current commitments with MI and Khulna.” Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and Doda Ganesh had applied for India’s coaching role when BCCI first advertised the Board extended the deadline to July 9 to get more applicants once Kumble stepped down. Former Sri Lanka skipper Jayawardene, 40, retired from international cricket in March 2015. Jayawardene has played the 2016 season of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 for Dhaka Dynamites. He made an impressive coaching debut when he won the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year with Mumbai Indians. Last month he was declared as the head coach of the BPL franchise Khulna for the next two seasons of the tournament.
