Earlier, BCCI made it clear Anil Kumble do not need to apply for the post of the new head coach. Since he is currently on the job, he was offered a direct entry to the interview process without applying for the same. Kumble, however, wants to start afresh as he re-applied for the post. Other persons applying for the coach are Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and Dodda Ganesh. The Cricket Advisory Committee will interview the candidates for the post along with Kumble. Another applicant for the post is Craig McDermott, whose application reached after the dateline. Still, the former Aussie fast bowler will be considered for the post.
The Advisory Committee comprises of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. They will set off the interview process by this week. As reported, the results will be declared before the end of Champions Trophy. The final fixture of the game is on 18th of this month and Team India will get their coach for the next session before it. Kumble’s contract will end after the tournament. BCCI wants to follow the normal procedure to select the coach of team India. Kumble has a strong chance of getting back on the position for his successful stance as the coach for the season.
The present coach sent his resume to the committee along with his vision for the team. He attached a detailed roadmap of what he wants to achieve. The board and Committee of Administration contacted Kumble after the IPL tournament. The coach was also preparing a presentation to consider his upgradation for a full contract. Before a year, Kumble was brought up by the same Advisory Committee even if his name was not the shortlisted candidates. His appointment was, in fact, temporary and on a Test basis for a year. Then Chairman of BCCI, said it was a provision for Kumble to make his transition from a player to a coach “smooth”.
