Sriram was appointed the spin bowling coach of Australia in 2016 under the then head coach Darren Lehmann. He also served as the batting and spin coach of RCB in 2020.
According to the news of ‘The Daily Star newspaper’, Shriram said, ‘I think it (my role) is very simple and I am very clear about my work here, I will probably have to mobilize all the resources. We have some very well-skilled coaches. I am sure they will do their job brilliantly. I have to work with the captain, team director and skill trainers.
“By bringing these three departments together, I have to strategize using my experience in IPL and T20 cricket in Australia. A strategy where we can use our resources properly. I am not saying that I am leading the team and I am just trying to cooperate.
Sriram, who has scored more than 9,000 runs in first-class cricket and is recognized as a prolific batsman, said he does not want to miss his playing days during his coaching work.
He said, ‘I forgot the fact that I was a player and it doesn’t matter how many runs you scored because at the end of the day I am here to help other people and that is my biggest strength and I don’t remember the past. This frustrates me.
