Johannesburg - Former England coach Duncan Fletcher was coy about whether or not he had
applied for the job as the Proteas coach and said it was only another
month before it would be known who the applicants were for the job.
"You've only got to wait another month to find out," said Fletcher at a media conference at the Wanderers on Friday.
"From my point of view, I'm not going to say I'd like a job [coaching the Proteas], I'm not going to say I wouldn't like a job at the moment."
Fletcher, currently the batting consultant to the Proteas leading up to the Cricket World Cup said he would give the job consideration if it was offered to him when current coach, Corrie van Zyl, steps down.
"My last coaching job was in 2007 and if something came up, I'd look at it.
"I'm not being rushed and I'm not desperate for it at this stage and feel I can really contribute with my role now," said Fletcher.
Van Zyl's contract ends after the Cricket World Cup, which takes place in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh between February 19 - April 2, and has ruled himself out of the mix so he can return to his development work at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria.
Since coaching England, Fletcher has worked as a consultant to several teams and has recently returned from New Zealand where he was an advisor to the national side.
"I've been very fortunate with the work I'm doing with South Africa. I've been doing some work with Hampshire and Zimbabwe, and recently in New Zealand and I quite enjoy this aspect of it," he said.
Applications for the Proteas' coach close on February 18, a day before cricket''s biggest showpiece on the sub-continent begins.
