  • Team India cricket coach to be selected on July 10: Sourav Ganguly

Notably, the 47-year-old is now serving as junior selection committee chairman and his three-year contract will come to end in September.

Here, it's pertinent to mention that during Kumble's short-lived reign, there was no bowling coach as Jumbo himself assumed that role. A lot of people have been applying for the team's head coach position including Virender Sehwag. "I can work under Ravi Shastri or Virender Sehwag or whoever becomes the head coach and bring in my experiences as an global cricketer and a former coach", Prasad told Cricbuzz. It was later disclosed that the man behind Ravi Shastri's rejection was Sourav Ganguly. Other who have applied for the post are Lalchand Rajput, Dodda Ganesh, Richard Pybus, Tom Moody, Virender Sehwag and Venkatesh Prasad.

The BCCI has already stated that Team India will get its new head coach before their tour to Sri Lanka beginning July 26. He also served as coach of the U19 side, which made the final of 2006 U19 World Cup.

CoA is also learnt not to be happy with BCCI extending the deadline of application for the head coach post without any prior intimation to them.

The Shastri sentiment is so strong in the board that some of the officials have started comparing Shastri and Anil Kumble's stints with statistics.

Probably, this is where Kumble lacked as in his parting message on Twitter, he revealed: "The captain had reservations about my style and my continuing as the Head Coach".

Fabinho tempted by United
Fabinho has been speaking live on Brazilian television on Friday and the channel chose to do a Q+A session where fans sent in their questions for Fabinho to answer.

As reported by TOI, Prasad confirmed that he was applying for the position after the legendary leggie stepped down from the post in the wake of India's Champions Trophy final defeat to arch-rivals Pakistan.

Many in the cricket fraternity believe Shastri is the frontrunner for the job, given his successful relationship with Kohli during his tenure as Team India director.

Meanwhile, former India cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar wants the Indian skipper to have a say in selecting the coach.

"Pl apply for Indian cricket coach". He has also had experience of coaching junior teams, which would work in his favour. He said, "May be I will write, but this is what I am very keen about (the support staff job)".

"Shastri was somebody who was character-based". He wanted characters in the team, so he worked on that kind of approach, he wanted to take that approach to the field.
