The announcement of India's next head coach is set to be just weeks away and former Australia spinner Shane Warne says he would love to work with the Indian side.
The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) - an advisory group to the BCCI comprised of legends Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly - has been tasked with selecting India's next coach and are likely to meet in the coming weeks.
India haven't had a head coach since Duncan Fletcher's contract expired following the 50-over World Cup last year, with team director Ravi Shastri taking a senior role among the backroom staff.
While Shastri is one of the favourites to take over as head coach, Warne says he would never say never to a coaching role with the Indian team.
"I would love to work with the Indian team," the 46-year-old said at a Monarch Cruise event with Tendulkar and Brett Lee. "They are a very talented, wonderful team to work for.
"There’s a lot of pressure (working with them). There are about a billion-plus people supporting the Indian cricket team. If you make a mistake you cop it. I have copped it plenty of times on many different things.”
