Yuvraj was talking to Kevin Pietersen on Instagram where he chose coaching and mentoring over commentary. "I will probably start with that (coaching). I am more keen on coaching than doing commentary," Yuvraj said.

The hero of India's global triumph in 2007 and 2011 feels that he can make a difference speaking to youngsters on mental aspect of middle-order batting.

"I have more insight in limited-overs cricket and I can share my knowledge with players coming to bat at No 4, 5, 6 as to what sort of mindset they should have, he said.

"I will probably start by being a mentor and then if it goes well maybe full-time coaching," he said.
