Newly-formed Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kochi is mulling over appointing former Australian captain Steve Waugh as a key adviser and technical consultant to the team. Waugh was approached by Harshad Mehta, the Dubai-based chairman of Kochi, earlier this month and discussions were at an advanced stage.

“Waugh will be given a top position in the team with two layers of people below him,” Mehta told the daily.

Mehta said the franchise is also attempting to lure Mahela Jayawardene, the Sri Lanka batsman, away from Kings XI Punjab for next season.
