Former Aussie pacer Jason Gillespie today showed his interest in coaching the Indian team in future and congratulated Ravi Shastri on getting that job.
“I think it would have been a wonderful job and I congratulate Ravi Shastri on getting that job, maybe one day in a couple of years that’d be something I’d seriously consider,” Gillespie was quoted saying cricket.com.au.
Earlier, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed the appointment of the former Indian all-rounder Ravi Shastri as the new head coach of the Indian cricket team. India fast bowler Zaheer Khan was named the bowling consultant and former star batsman Rahul Dravid was given the role of overseas batting consultant.
The 42-year-old Australian pacer also confessed he was confused whether to apply for the post, which kept him away from the role.
“I talked a lot about that with my family, I had days where I thought, right, I’m definitely applying for it, I’m going to have a crack and see how far I get.”
