Javed Miandad, the former coach of the Pakistan side, has said that he may take up coaching assignments in India during the next few weeks. Miandad will be travelling to Delhi later this week to take up a television assignment for the Asia Cup, which begins on July 16.

While in India, for about three weeks, Miandad is also contemplating taking up some private coaching assignments. The News quoted him as saying, "Nothing is final as yet. But I have got offers and if I get the time I will definitely be keen to do some coaching with the Indian players."

Miandad received an offer to participate in a studio-based programme in Zee News during the course of the Asia Cup. "It will be similar to what I did for Ten Sports during the last World Cup," Miandad said. "I would be giving expert comments on every match."

Apart from Miandad, several other former Pakistan cricketers are set to be involved with various television channels for the Asia Cup. Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Rameez Raja and Imran Khan are some of the others who will be taking part as commentators and experts. Wasim and Waqar have been signed on by ESPN-Star Sports, who have won the rights for broadcasting the Asia Cup.

Miandad has already got an invitation from The Cricket Club of India for coaching at their academy in Mumbai.
