Shane Warne

On 7th June,2017 Shane Warne an Australian spin legend cleared rumors and he accused media to spin off rumors of being coach to Indian cricket team. Current Indian Team coach Anil Kumble’s tenure is about to end within a month and the BCCI advertised the post ahead of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy. The rumors were believed to be spread by a post published by  ‘mid-day’, that Warne said “ I am very expensive, I don’t think they can afford me. Virat Kohli and me can have a good partnership, but as I said, I am very, very expensive.”

Warne tweeted: “Indian coaching position. I was in a lift & was asked if I would put my hat in the ring I said: “India can’t afford me” tongue in cheek!”.

“@imVkohli & I would work well together as a quote, this is totally made up. I never said that to anyone, very disappointing journalism”, he added further.

Besides, there are others in the line for the position of coach. Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Craig McDermott, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput, and Dodda Ganesh are in line for the job along with Kumble who re-applied.

If Warne takes up the position of head Indian Coach it will no doubt be very beneficial for the Indian team as he proved his mettle in mentoring IPL team in 2008, Rajasthan Royals. After retirement from all forms of competitive cricket, Warne made a seamless transition into the commentary box. He is widely revered for his acerbic views.

Last April when BCCI were searching for a replacement of head coach to Duncan Fletcher, the Australian spin legend had expressed interest.

The BCCI has already invited applications for the post which will be vacant after the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy concludes on 18 June.
