I'm still open for a role - Wright

The former India coach John Wright remains hopeful of getting a role with an Indian Premier League side in future. Earlier this year, speculation was raised that the former New Zealand batsman would replace John Buchanan as KKR coach. Wright too admitted that he had serious discussions with the Kolkata team management on the matter but eventually it did not materialize. However, with two new teams Kochi and Pune and joining the IPL from next year, Wright is keeping his hopes high.

Wright said it would be an exciting challenge but who knows what will happen in future. He has coached India for 5 years and knows the structure of the game. He still misses the excitement which is associated with Indian cricket. He still associated with coaching and he coaches New Zealand 'A' team. But above all as a coach he should have the confidence of producing a good team. He added that he had good talks with KKR people but it did not go that far.

Talking about the Twenty20 World Cup starting from April 28 in the West Indies, Wright feels the teams which would seize early momentum in the tournament will be in an advantageous position in the tournament. However, he refused to handpick any particular team as the favourite to lift the title but said the team which is fresh and free of injuries would stand a good chance in the event.

Wright, who coached India from 2000 to 2005 said he think it is going to be like the last Twenty20 World Cup. But it's really very difficult to predict a winner in Twenty20 matches.
