New Delhi: Anil Kumble has now officially re-applied for the post of the chief coach of Team India despite the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had made it clear that there was no need for a formal application as he would be a "direct entry" into the final pool.
The former leggie has now become a part of the shortlististed candidates, which includes Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput, and Dodda Ganesh.
All the six candidates will be interviewed by the three-member cricket advisory committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
The BCCI will try to announce the new coach before the end of Champions Trophy as the team has to tour West Indies for the limited-over series just after the present tournament concludes.
Kumble's tenure will end after the Champions Trophy and despite being a successful coach, the BCCI has invited applications for the new coach after reports of rifts between Kohli and the coach.
Also, Kumble has sent a detailed roadmap outlining his vision for the team's future.
The new coach will be appointed for a period of two years with the 2019 World Cup being the main target.
