Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been flooded with applications for the post of coach of the Indian cricket team. So far, more than 2000 applications have come for the coaching staff of the Indian team. The BCCI had withdrawn an add-on for the post of coach of the Indian team, after which several candidates have come forward to apply.
According to reports, no major international name has come up to challenge Ravi Shastri in the application. Former Australian all-rounder Tom Moody has also applied to become the main coach of the Indian team. Former New Zealand Cricket Coach and current Kings XI Punjab coach Mike Hesson has also filed an application for the head coach of the Indian team.
Former Indian team players Robin Singh and Lalchand Rajput have also applied for the head coach of the Indian team. But no major international player has come forward for the head coach. Former Sri Lankan batsman Mahela Jayawardene has applied for the Indian team's head coach but according to reports, he has not sent his resume so far.
According to reports, applications for the head coach were sent by international players through their agents and BCCI may take longer to shortlist the names for the head coach. Earlier, the South African veteran had also applied for a coach.
