Shane Warne mocks at BCCI, says it can’t afford me as coach
New Delhi: Amid the talks regarding the selection of Indian Cricket team head coach, former Australian spinning legend Shane Warne feels that he, as a coach, holds the price tag which Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) cannot bear.
“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,” the former Australia leggie is quoted as saying by Mid-Day.
Warne, however, keeps the experience of guiding Indians as a captain of Rajasthan Royals from 2008 till 2011 in the Indian Premier League.
Several cricketing names in the form of Virender Sehwag, former Australian fast bowler and Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody, Englishman Richard Pybus, former India cricketers Dodda Ganesh and domestic veteran Lalchand Rajput are in the hunt for the post of Indian team's coach.
