Gary Kirsten says he is not in race to become India coach again

Former South African batsman Gary Kirsten has said he is not in a "position currently, to consider a full time post across all formats" after his name was linked as one of the possible choices for India's next coach following Anil Kumble's resignation.

Kirsten had coached India from 2008 to 2011 and finished a successful tenure with the World Cup triumph in 2011. In three years at the helm, Kirsten led India to series wins over Australia and England before drawing a Test series in South Africa. India had also reached on top of the Test rankings under Kirsten's tutelage.

"Thanks for your thoughtful consideration of my potential involvement with Indian cricket. I really did enjoy the experience," said Kirsten. "I'm not in a position currently, to consider a full time post across all formats."
