I have not applied and I am not interested. I am happy at Woodville."<br /> <br /> The cricket website ESPNcricinfo has reported that Hooper's agent had contacted the <a href="/tags/BCB/post" target="_blank">BCB</a>.<br /> <br /> However, Hooper said he would rather be interested in other options, especially because he would always put his family first in such matters.<br /> <br /> "I know there are a few things that might come up in South Australia or the Caribbean. My kids are settled here so I want to stay here if I can," said the West Indies legend.<br /> <br /> "There's a lot of stuff in the air with SACA and the clubs. I always put my family first. That is why the Bangladesh thing is so far-fetched."
