Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag who is running for Team India's head coach position has sent a two-line resume to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). According to media reports, the former opener opted for a brief resume instead of sending a detailed Curriculum Vitae (CV).

Sehwag is learnt to have sent the application mentioning his role as mentor with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL and his familiarity with the current Indian team players, having played with them.

The BCCI clearly seem unhappy with the application and has asked Sehwag to send a detailed application with a full CV. Other than Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh and Lalchand Rajput have applied for the job.

The current Indian national team coach Anil Kumble’s contract ends after the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy. There have been reports of a rift between Kumble and Virat Kohli, which were rubbished by the India skipper ahead of the Pakistan tie.

A three-member BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V. V. S. Laxman will conduct the interviews for the job.
