Javed Miandad on Wednesday said he is ready for short-term coaching assignment but the former captain made it clear that it would not be at the cost of the Director-General's post that he holds in Pakistan Cricket Board.
Miandad, who is engaged in a war of words PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt over delegation of powers, said he wants to play a multidimensional role in Pakistan cricket.
"I have said before I cannot accept a long-term coaching stint with the national team and it is true that Mr Ejaz Butt made this offer," Miandad said.
"Definitely I am prepared to go and work with both the senior and junior teams in a coaching position or as a consultant/advisor on short term basis. But I don't want to sacrifice my role in the board just for a coaching stint. I think I can contribute more in a multi-dimensional role," he said.
Miandad said if the board asked him to work with the team before the Twenty20 World Cup or even travel with the team as consultant, he would be willing to do this.
"I can accept assignments which last around two months and I have no issues either working with the senior or junior players. I know I can play my role in putting the team back on the right track after its recent poor performances," he said.
