Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne attends a press conference at Lords cricket ground in west London.

Shane Warne said it will be difficult for India to find a suitable replacement for coach Gary Kirsten.

“He is a quality person and it would be hard to find a replacement for him. He is a fantastic coach.

“Anyone who takes on now onwards will enjoy working with Indian team. He would find things a lot easier because Indian has a good side now,” Warne said here on Tuesday.

Warne said that it would have been a grand finale if the Indian could have scored his 100th international century in the World Cup final. 

Asked about his true prediction of the India-England tie, he said, “I saw the match in a close balance. With both sides good enough I thought it might end in a tie. It had started as mere fun only.”
