John Buchanan, who coached Australia to two World Cup wins, has owned up responsibility for the Kolkata Knight Riders' failure to make the semifinals of the Indian Premier League.
Buchanan, nicknamed Buck, rued the fact that he could not motivate the Knight Riders' players to perform consistently.
"Motivation should come from within. If I am not able to talk and get it from my players, which I indeed could not do at the IPL, I should be under review," he said.
"As a coach, I work on providing them with an environment to help them achieve their desires, the desire to try and improve. If I can change it fine, or else it would be time to go," he said on the occasion of the release of his book, 'If better is possible,' last night.
The 55-year-old said he is in no mood to return to take charge of any national side as he is not in a position to make "much impact" anymore.
