The Indian board had also approached former Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene, but the Sri Lankan player showed no interest in it and wants to continue as the coach of Mumbai Indians. According to a report published in the Indian Express,
‘BCCI approached Mahela Jayawardene with an offer to be the next Indian coach but he said that he was only interested in coaching Sri Lanka and Mumbai Indians.’
Why doesn’t Jayawardene want to be India’s coach?
There is no doubt that legends wait to become the coach of Team India. But this news is shocking that Mahela JayawardeneHas not agreed to the proposal given by him to become the head coach of Team India. Actually, the matter is such that Jayawardene is the coach of IPL franchise Mumbai Indians at present. He has been handling this responsibility since 2017.
