Australian pacer Ryan Harris talks to CA TV about his ambition of making it as a coach in international cricket.


Harris, who is recovering from knee surgery, will reportedly coach the A side for a home series of first-class and limited overs matches against India A and South Africa A in July or August.


According to, Harris had earlier said that he cherished a burning passion to become an international coach and how Australian coach Darren Lehmann, who is also his good friend, had been tutoring him.


Harris said that he certainly did not expect to ask for this opportunity but he jumped at the chance when the team s performance boss Pat Howard asked him to be an assistant coach.


The paceman said that he is very fortunate to be offered this position as one normally has to coach for a long time to get that sort of position.
