Sydney, Jan 9 (IANS) Australian spin wizard Shane Warne Friday rubbished rumours that he is in line for the job of England cricket team coach after the sacking of Peter Moores. England captain Kevin Pietersen Wednesday stepped down from the captaincy after a long strife with coach Moores.

The sacking of Moores sparked rumours that Pietersen had sounded out Warne for the job.

“Let me say I am in no way, shape or form considering coaching England,” Warne was quoted as saying in Daily Telegraph.

“I’m loving what I’m doing, especially the Channel 9 commentary, and there is no thought of coaching England or anyone else. The only way I’d do that is through an offer so financially outrageous it would be impossible to refuse.”
