We all know that earlier the Board of Control for Cricket in Indian (BCCI) has sent out an invitation and opened the doors for aspirants to apply for the post of the coach of Indian Cricket Team.
Virender Sehwag has clearly not applied for a job before. But as per latest reports, Sehwag sent in a two-line application in his unique style for the widely-sought and prestigious role of India’s head coach.
Yes, you heard it right!
The Nawab of Najafgarh had sent in a two-line application for the job of India coach before he was persuaded to submit a full resume by the Indian cricket board.
Sehwag’s application letter just said that he is a “mentor and a coach of Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and has played with all these [Indian] boys before,” a BCCI official told the daily. The 38-year-old was then asked to send a full resume by the BCCI, the report said.
Also, a source in the BCCI informed The Indian Express on Monday.
“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.”
Sehwag, who has scored over 8,000 runs in both Tests and One-Day Internationals, is among six people who have applied for the post.
Apart from the incumbent Anil Kumble and Sehwag, former Australian fast bowler and Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody, Englishman Richard Pybus, former India cricketers Dodda Ganesh and domestic veteran Lalchand Rajput have applied for the job. It is learned that Kumble will have to appear once again in front of CAC and go through the interview process, just like Ravi Shastri had done last year.
The BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) consisting of erstwhile legends Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman will conduct the interviews from London. Sehwag would be interviewed on Skype.
The Indian Express report also said that Sehwag was asked to apply for the job by one of the general managers of the BCCI during the IPL.
