Kumble’s application was one of the first to arrive when the process was opened by the BCCI on May 25, according to a report in ESPN Cricinfo.

Along with his CV, Kumble has forwarded a detailed roadmap illustrating his vision for the Indian cricket team’s future.

he former India leg-spinner is part of a six-man shortlist that includes Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and Dodda Ganesh.

All six candidates will be interviewed by the BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), which consists of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

The CAC will have to make a decision close to the end of the Champions Trophy, 18 June, because India are set to play a limited-over series in the Caribbean against the West Indies soon after the tournament concludes.

Earlier the news was widely surfaced that Kumble had reportedly been embroiled in a rift with Team India skipper Virat Kohli, something that might have affected his chances of getting a contract extension, as BCCI invited applications for the former India leggie’s post.
