Former Indian master hitter Virender Sehwag, on process of applying for the post of Indian coach, has submitted a single line resume to Board of Control for Cricket in India while BCCI has asked for an elaborate version.
“A mentor and a coach of Kings XI Punjab and has played with all the boys before” – this is all Virender Sehwag was to write to the board.
A source of BCCI, talking to Indian Express said, “Sehwag being Sehwag has sent his application in two lines. There was no CV attached to it. We had to ask him to send his CV too along with his application. After all it will be the first time he is set to appear for the interview.”
Apart from Virender Sehwag, Sunrisers Hyderabad coach and former Australian fast bowler Tom Moody, former Bangladesh national team coach Englishman Richard Pybus, former India cricketers Dodda Ganesh and Lalchand Rajput have applied for the job.
Present India coach Anil Kumble will also have to go through the interview process although BCCI is all set to make his exit plans at the end of the Champions Trophy.
It is also learnt that the application of former Australian pacer Craig McDermott has been rejected as it came after the deadline and therefore will not be called for an interview.
