Aus­tralia great Shane Warne has added his name to an ever-grow­ing list of con­tenders to lead the Baggy Greens in their up­com­ing home Twenty20 se­ries. The three T20 clashes against Sri Lanka next Fe­bru­ary will be played at the same time the Test side are in In­dia pre­par­ing for a four-Test se­ries. That leaves Aus­tralia without coach Dar­ren Lehmann, while Justin Langer, tipped as the nat­u­ral suc­ces­sor, will be coach­ing Western Aus­tralia in the Sh­effield Shield. The likes of Brad Haddin, Ja­son Gille­spie, Ricky Ponting and Warne are all in­ter­ested in the post, with Cricket Aus­tralia (CA) declar­ing all can­di­dates will be con­sid­ered. “We are speak­ing to a num­ber of peo­ple about the prospect of coach­ing the T20 in­ter­na­tional squad against Sri Lanka as head coach and as­sis­tant coach, Dar­ren Lehmann and David Saker, will be in In­dia,” a CA spokesper­son said. “At this stage no de­ci­sion has been made on an ap­point­ment.”
