Michael Hussey, citing workload and work-life balance, said he is not interested in the head coach position for the Indian cricket team.

Former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey has ruled himself out of contention for the vacant head coach position of the Indian men’s cricket team. The BCCI is currently seeking applications for Rahul Dravid’s successor, with a deadline set for May 27th.

Hussey, who recently served as an assistant coach for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2024, cited his current workload and desire for work-life balance as reasons for declining interest. “The role requires a significant time commitment, with constant travel throughout the year. While I enjoy coaching, being a full-time international coach doesn’t fit my current lifestyle. I love that balance and still spending some time at home. You’d always like more time at home, but the bucket is pretty full at the moment,” Hussey explained on ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’.

Hussey also commented on the possibility of his fellow countryman, Stephen Fleming, being considered for the role. “Fleming’s name appearing reflects his high regard in the cricketing world, especially in India. However, I don’t believe he would be interested either, as he values his current work-life balance,” added Hussey.

This news came after former India coaches with international backgrounds, including Greg Chappell and Duncan Fletcher, echoed similar sentiments about the demanding nature of the head coach position.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals’ Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara has also removed himself from consideration. “I haven’t been approached, and I wouldn’t have the time to commit to a full-time coaching role with India,” admitted Sangakkara.
