BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke said on Tuesday that the applications received for the Indian cricket team head post coach’s from 57 candidates would be pruned before the short-listed names would be called for interviews.
"The first step is to make the list from 57 to the eligible and then it will go for further scrutiny and then the most eligible candidates will go through a process of interviews, presentations.
All of this will be done and the best candidate will be finalised.
" Shirke told reporters in Mumbai. "There was a criteria announced, so as per the criteria whoever will be eligible, that will be announced.
There is no deadline as such, the process has to be completed and as soon as the process is completed, the final selections will be announced," he quipped.
"All I can say is that there are meritorious foreigners and meritorious Indians (who have sought the job)," he added.
