Mahela Jayawardene tweeted on rumours linking him to the India coaching job and said that while he was "flattered", he was not "looking at full-time positions right now".

Just before the start of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, the Indian cricket board invited applications for the India coaching job. Soon enough, reports surfaced of a rift between the then coach Anil Kumble and captain Virat Kohli and they only gained ground as the tournament progressed. But as the dust settled following India's loss to Pakistan in the final, it became clear that Kumble's stint as coach was nigh. Rumour mills went into a tizzy with the likes of Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody being linked to the post. Another name to crop up was that of Mahela Jayawardene but the Sri Lankan batting maestro has quickly quashed any such rumour.

On Monday, the Sri Lankan tweeted on talks linking him to the India coaching job and said that while he was "flattered", he was not "looking at full-time positions right now".

“Flattered by speculation linking me to India coaching job but I am not looking at full-time positions right now,” he tweeted.

He put out another tweet just a minute later, saying that he completely focused on his current projects.

“I am completely focused on current commitments with MI and Khulna,” he added.
