“I would love to become the senior coach of the national team, but I have other work in my life and I want to spend some time at home… Everyone knows that if you work with the Indian team, you are in the IPL team. Can’t join, so it won’t be any of this either.

“Also, being a national head coach is a job 10 or 11 months a year, and as much as I want to do it, it just doesn’t fit into my lifestyle right now and the things I really enjoy doing,
