Sri Lankan batting legend Mahela Jayawardene finally broke his silence on the speculation of his joining as India's head coach, following the ouster of Anil Kumble.
"Flattered by speculation linking me to India coaching job but I am not looking at full-time positions right now," Jayawardene tweeted on Monday.
Jayawardene, 40, revealed that he's is happy with the coaching job at league franchises — Mumbai Indians and Khulna Royal Bengals — teams that he coached in Indian Premier League and Bangladesh Premier League, respectively.
"I am completely focused on current commitments with MI and Khulna," he added.
The former Sri Lanka captain retired in 2014 after scoring 11,814 and 12,650 runs in Tests and ODIs, respectively.
Besides this, Jayawardene’s name is also making rounds for Sri Lanka's head coach job after the exit of Graham Ford. However, the set of tweets by the right-hander makes it clear that he is not much keen for full-time commitments at this stage.
