“It was absolutely amicable. We were involved in a process over the past two months that we had been working through,” Dawes told. But in the same time, Dawes chose not to speak on the BCCI’s decision to rest him during the ODI and T20 Leg of the England tour.

“The actual process and what went on, I don’t really want to talk about it. It is just not worth talking about it. We parted ways really amicably and I don’t want to risk in any shape or form,” he said.

He also cited the language barrier as one of the problem for his exit midway through the England tour.

“They thought there was a language barrier issue. But I had things in place to assist me with that. I have a very simple grasp of Hindi but cricket is also a universal language. I would use either the manager or one of the bowlers who spoke English to communicate. I would use Ishant Sharma all the time because he spoke good English. I would always make sure he was around to give me a hand.”

Dawes also said that the board gave him an option to work at the National Cricket Academy at Bangalore but it was not something he expected.
