Australia all-rounder Shane Watson has revealed that he is interested in coaching after he retires from playing cricket.
Watson noted that, if and when he does become a coach, he is likely to base his ideology on that of Australia head coach Darren Lehmann.
“Coaching is something that I am very passionate about,” he told cricket.com.au. “I am very lucky to have had some great coaches and some of the best coaches that have been in and around world cricket and Darren’s been a perfect example of that – to see how someone has been able to come in and change things around very quickly.”
Watson also noted that it is thanks to Lehmann that he and many other Australian cricketers are enjoying representing their country more than ever.
“I owe a hell of a lot to Darren because I was at a stage where I didn’t know where I was at with my international career,” he said. “Darren came in, and not just for me, I know it was for a lot of other guys as well, and just provided an amazing injection into what was required for us to be able to get back on track. We got back on track very quickly.”
