“I do not want to join an unprofessional set-up.” Mahela says ‘no’ to Sri Lanka coaching

Sunday Times : With just one win away from annexing their third IPL title in four finals under his watch, Mumbai Indians head coach Mahela Jayawardene can easily land a lucrative coaching stint with the Sri Lanka national team.

But Jayawardene isn’t interested – not because he doesn’t enjoy coaching or doesn’t wish to give something to the country that made him the cricketer he is. He is repulsed by the deep-rooted politicking within the Sri Lankan system.

“I would only work in an environment I am comfortable with,” Jayawardene said when asked whether he would accept a role with the national team.

“If you take the Mumbai Indians, they have given me the freedom and they have supported my ideas. That’s important and I do not wish to join an environment that I am not comfortable with.”

“I have always said we need to have a proper system in place,” he asserted.
