Shane Warne interested in coaching India
Wednesday 06 April 2011
Former Australia legspinner Shane Warne would be interested in coaching India, a news report claimed today.
"It is a very difficult job to be India coach," Warne was quoted as saying in the Mail Today newspaper. "But with India doing so well, it is a lot easier to take over right now than it has been in the past. I'll enjoy working with the Indian cricket team for sure."
The coaching job with the newly crowned world champions became vacant after South African Gary Kirsten chose not to renew his three-year contract.
Warne is currently in India as coach of the Rajasthan Royals team of the cash-rich Indian Premier League. He coached that team to victory in the 2008 IPL.
The IPL Twenty20 tournament starts on Friday.
