Speculation was rife that Mahela would apply as coach of the Indian cricket team.

Earlier, speaking to a local radio station, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) president Thilanga Sumathipala had said that Mahela Jayawardene is still short of experience to take over as head coach of Sri Lanka national team after the exit of Graham Ford.

"Mahela is still short of experience as a senior coach, he may be good as a T20 batting or a fielding coach," Sumathipala told Neth FM radio.
