Sehwag applies for coach job

Sehwag Applies For Indian Cricket Team Coach’s Job Moody Pybus In Fray

It was nearly taken for granted that he would be given an extension once his one-year contract ended after the Champions Trophy.

As the play-off between arch-rivals in mini World Cup is nearing, players are exchanging statements to take mental advantage over each other before the game. "And like I said, our president, Mr Thakur, took the initiative and told him that this was the unanimous choice of the cricket committee and we would have to abide by their recommendation and Kohli should accept it", Shirke said.

Having played in the IPL until 2015, Virender Sehwag shares a good rapport with the present generation of Indian cricketers.

Moody has earlier coached Sri Lanka, and had earlier also applied for the India's coach's post. "We are looking to maintain that against them and it's very exciting".

Along with the CoA nominee, the BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V.V.S. Laxman will conduct interviews and seek presentations to select the best candidate.

India go into the tournament as a the defending champions after winning the 2013 tournament in which they trumped England in the final to lift the trophy for the second time.

The bombshell dropped on Monday when a report claimed that Kumble had fallen out of favour with the players in the team for his "overbearing attitude". However, Kumble is an automatic entrant into the process.

Gavaskar who has played in 125 test matches thinks that a coach's responsibility is too look out for the future of the cricket team which should last more than 10 years.

It is being said that differences over team selection during the Australia series were not so serious that they would have led to the fallout between the two most important persons of Indian team. As a coach, I am sure he's going to bring a lot of good to Indian cricket.

The BCCI's decision to issue a communication, calling for applications for the job, also was construed as an indication of the Board's unhappiness with the former Indian captain.

"So in my view, what the BCCI is doing is following procedure", the former India captain said. According to the facts, the differences between Kohli and Kumble started at the initial stage of the England series in Rajkot in November a year ago.
