The hunt for Indian cricket team’s head coach has resumed and the Indian cricket board’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) is geared up to go through the list of applicants to find Anil Kumble’s successor. With many candidates in the race, former India captain Ajit Wadekar backs Virender Sehwag for the top job. “If not Anil Kumble, then Virender Sehwag is the best option India can have. He has an attacking style approach towards the game and it will be good for India,” Ajit Wadekar told an exclusive interview.Legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble on Tuesday stepped down from the post of the head coach of the Indian cricket team. The Board of Control for cricket in India (BCCI) had advertised for applications for the post before the ICC Champions Trophy and it was clear then that Kumble’s tenure would not be extended automatically.Kumble was a direct entry into the coach selection process while the others who applied for the post included Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput among others.”I will still prefer Anil for this job. Let’s have a look at India’s performances in the past one year. The statistics itself give the answers. India’s domination in the past one year is commendable in Kumble’s reign. So, we must respect that,” Wadekar said.”But, if you ask me as a Kumble’s successor, it should be Sehwag,” Wadekar said.Kumble, whose tenure was scheduled to end at the end of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, stayed back in England instead of travelling with the team for their next assignment — the West Indies tour, where India are scheduled to play five ODIs and one T20I.spoke to the Committee of Administrators (CoA), while Virat Kohli joined on Skype, asking for 150 per cent hike in the retainership of the Grade A players. Also, Kumble himself demanded Rs 7.5 crore per annum. His present salary is around Rs 6.25 crore.The release, headlined ‘Applications invited for the position of Head Coach for Indian Cricket Team (Men)’, states: “The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would like to call upon interested candidates to apply for the position of ‘Head Coach’ for Indian Cricket Team (Men). The BCCI’s three-member Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Mr. Sachin Tendulkar, Mr. Sourav Ganguly and Mr. VVS Laxman will conduct interviews and seek presentations to select the best possible candidate to guide the team and take Indian Cricket forward,” it adds.While the administrators have given a chance to the bowling legend to return to the top job, they aren’t making his road any easier.
