General News Sehwag applies for the position of India head coach

Virender Sehwag has thrown his hat in the ring for the position of next India head coach, according to a Press Trust of India report on Thursday (June 1). While Anil Kumble, the present coach, is a direct entry, the other applicants had till May 31 to send in their entries.

Tom Moody and Richard Pybus, the Englishman who previously coached Pakistan and Bangladesh, too have entered the race. Lalchand Rajput, who has held several positions with India A previously, and Dodda Ganesh are the Indian applicants. Ganesh played four Tests for India and one One-Day International in 1997.

Sehwag held the position of the Team Director with the Kings XI Punjab in the recently concluded Indian Premier League and has played 104 Tests, 251 ODIs and 19 Twenty20 Internationals. Moody, on the other hand, has successfully coached Sunrisers Hyderabad last year and has been instrumental in their success.

Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman - The BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee - will choose the next India coach, like they did last year. While in all likelihood Kumble should have been given an extension, Amitabh Choudhary, the BCCI acting secretary, said it's just a procedure that is being followed.

"It's a very simple issue. The appointment which was made last year was after a process had been gone through. And it was made for a period. That period is coming to an end, so the BCCI is just following the process. To add, if we don't follow a process it's not supposed to be good. If you follow a process, it's supposed to be good, isn't it?," he said.

"You can see the full calendar and tell me at what position there was a free slot. After one tournament, there is another, then another series, home series, away series. Something is always on throughout the year. This is a process which is well defined. The Cricket Advisory Committee is seized with the matter and will deal with it," Choudhary added.
