Ravi Shastri’s tenure as Team India’s head coach will end after the T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman. He is in no mood to extend his stay and the BCCI has already started to look for a new coach. While Mahela Jayawardene was approached for the role, Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid’s are the other two contenders for the big role.
And now, former South African all-rounder Lance Klusener has opened up on the prospects of coaching the Indian team. Klusener stated that everyone would like to get associated with the best team in the world.
“Who wouldn’t like to put in his hat for the best cricket team in the world? That would be obviously something huge and we’ve had South Africans that’s been extremely successful with the Indian team, likes of Gary Kirsten and his partner Paddy Upton,” said Lance Klusener to Cricket County.
However, Klusener’s current focus is on coaching the Afghanistan team. “My focus is on Afghanistan, my contract’s also coming up in December. I’ve got a soft spot for the people of Afghanistan and maybe there’s an option to continue with them,” said Lance Klusener.
