All set to take over as coach of the Mohali team in BCCI-backed Indian Premier League (IPL), former Sri Lankan coach Tom Moody said the offer from the cash-rich twenty20 series has come at a perfect time for him.
"Obviously the timing of it is pretty perfect in regard to my responsibilities with Western Australia," Moody was quoted as saying by 'The Australian'.
Moody expects to be required in India for two months from early April.
"That's all happening over the next few days. It's all a bit loose at the moment whether it's in regard to management or players."
Moody is among four Australians who have been short-listed to coach one each of the eight franchisee teams for the Twenty20 tournament starting on April 18.
Victorian coach Greg Shipperd, former Australia coach John Buchanan and former India coach Greg Chappell are also in line for coaching assignments in the cash-rich league.
